Well, once upon a time, there was a woman in a little village called Barbara, Barbara was well known for her delicious Rhubarb Cake. Barbara's Rhubarb Cake was so delicious people started calling Barbar, Rhubarb Barbara.

Now, you see Rhubarb Barbara was no dummy, and she quickly realised there was some money to be made! So she did the obvious and opened a little shop called Rhubarb Barbara's Rhubarb Bar so that she could sell her famous Rhubarb Cake.

It wasn't long until three Barbarians caught wind of this and decided to pay Rhubarb Barbara a visit at Rhubarb Barbara's Rhubarb Bar.

These three Barbarian's were completely impressed by Rhubarb Barbara and her Rhubarb Cake that they ended up visiting Rhubarb Barbara's Rhubarb Bar so often they were given the official title The Rhubarb Barbara's Rhubarb Bar's Barbarians!

The Rhubarb Barbara's Rhubarb Bar's Barbarians's Beards required some rather specialized grooming. So specialized in fact that there was only one barber in town that was up to the challenge, The Rhubarb Barbara's Rhubarb Bar's Barbarians' Beard Barber!
