Can someone explain this expression to me?

Кто а чём, а лысый о расчёске

I have seen this expression several times and i think i get the meaning, that someone keeps talking about something that means nothing to him, or something like that. Is there an easy phrase which it translates to in English?

 

Thanks

It means someone talking about something all the time. Not necessary that thing is useless for him. The point is he is annoying other with such behavior. 
In Russian may also say: Кто о чем, а он все о том же.
 
There are similar phrase:
Кому что, а вшивому - баня.
But in this case it may mean that someone talks about something that is most important just for him at first place.
