Lena and Lettie Jokes

Lena and Lettie are taking their postprandial stroll past the shops in their small town. Barber Bob has closed shop for the day and is out back in the alley, standing by his incinerator, burning the trash, floor sweepings and hair from the haircuts he had given that day. As the incinerator burns, the early evening breeze wafts some of the smoke over the building and to the sidewalk in front where Lena and Lettie happen to be walking at the moment.

The two elderly ladies smell the smoke as they walk along. Lettie turns to Lena and asks, "Do you smell something burning? It smells like hair."

They walk along a bit further, Lena's brow furrows and she asks her old freind, "Do you think we're walking too fast?"
