G. W. Bush and John Kerry accidentally wound up at the same barbershop at the same time while stopping for a little touchup while campaigning. As they sat in adjacent chairs, worked on by different barbers, not a word was spoken. The barbers were even afraid to start a conversation, for fear it would turn to politics. As the barbers each finished their haircuts, the one working on Kerry reached for some scented hair tonic to splash on, but Kerry quickly held up his hand, smiled, and said, "No thanks, Johnny! My wife, Teresa, will smell that and think I've been gallivanting in a whorehouse!" Everyone in his entourage laughed. The other barber turned to Bush and said, "I suppose you don't want any tonic on your hair either, Mr. President?" Bush replied, "No, go ahead, Mike. My wife doesn't know what the inside of a whorehouse smells like!"
