It's The Homicidal Barber!

File this in the cabinet marked "You Can't Make This Stuff Up".

An Amsterdam barber has been arrested for stabbing a client with scissors, the second such incident involving the barber, Dutch police said on Saturday.

The client was stabbed and seriously wounded after a fight broke out earlier this week at the barber's shop, police said.

The barber stabbed another client with scissors in 2000. The man later died of his wounds, although the barber was cleared of any charges after a court found he had acted in self-defense.

Police said they were holding the man, 42, and investigating whether attempted manslaughter charges should be brought against him.

Actually, check that. You can make this stuff up. At least the Pythons did once.

Heh. I've been sitting on that story all day because I knew - I just KNEW, I tells ya - that you'd go for the Python riff.
