Babar Berber Barbershop

Being a barbers who employ North Africans, who entertain the clients by singing, the mascot of the company is that book written for kids about the talking elephant, Baba,

Try saying that after 67 G&T's.

It just came to mind, as these things do.

Of course, if they made a tonsorial disaster, it would be a Baba Berber Barbershop booboo.

       Only a barbarian would misspell "Babar".

       After 67 gin & tonics I'm surprised he found "B".

       [nmrm], you may have come across this one before:
Bozu ga jozu ni bozu ni bozu shita.

       Will it be sung in a 4-part acapella harmony ?

       My favourite Japanese tongue-twister is "Red lorry yellow lorry". It can be fatal.

       Would it be located near the docks? Would it have a long counter for serving hoppy alcoholic drinks?

       ^ self [+] for being a pedant. So there!   

       But self [-] for misspelling of Barbar (noted MB).   

       It's some kind of karma.

       //Barbarians// I heard differently - from a Berber as it happens - and according to him, the Berbers were so named because when other peoples first came across them (Romans and Arabs alike) they were amused to hear their dialect rich in voiced bilabial plosives - thus Berber (or Barbar if you shift your historical perspective to a less Romanocentric position) might just be an example of one of those onomatopoedic naming things that crop up every now and then.

       67 Grapefruits and tomatoes ?

       If they sold ale, they could have the Abba Baba Berber Barbershop Band Beer Bar ..

       Didn't this feature in an episode of Yogi Bear? I'm sure Yogi's diminutive companion had an interest,

       //But self [-] for misspelling of Barbar (noted MB). //   

       You have recursively misspelled. It's neither Baba nor Barbar, but Babar.   

       //It's some kind of karma.//   

       You mean "kamar"
MaxwellBuchanan, Apr 10 2015
  

       I think after 67 of those, the letter B would be the only thing I could find. As in "Bbbbbbbbbbbbbb"   

       I would have your workers, and their infants, tested for thiamine deficiency, lest they succumb to Baby Babar Berber Barber beriberi.
