    Do you know the meaning of the word"barbermonger"? Why do I have the feeling the meaning isn't as obvious as it seem.."one who deals or traffics barbers?....ha ha~~~Jeanne p.s. heard this word on O'Reilly tonight.

    News to me. Your definition seems perfectly apt.

    When I was a kid we used to sing about "Molly Malone, who was a
    fish monger, and sure was no wonder..."

    Wasn't till I was an adult I found out a monger was a seller.

    Re: barbers, haven't been to one in decades. Gordon cuts my hair.
    He has no training, but he does a good job and the price is right.

    Guess I'll have to tune into O'Reilly tonite for the answer! Thought you might know,since you seem like a" wordsmith" to me!~~~Jeanne

    For doing the footwork...just as I suspected,definition isn't even close to the actual word!!! By the way,shows how out of the loop I am,I went directly to my Websters' dictionary that is God only knows how old...didn't even occur to me to Google the word! Oh well...
