Dad wears short shorts to teach daughter a lesson

FRESNO, California

Dad was willing to go out in public wearing short-shorts to make a point about the importance of dressing modestly.

When Scott Mackintosh's teen daughter insisted on wearing inappropriate cutoffs to a family dinner he cut his own jeans into a similarly skimpy fashion.

Myley snapped a photo of her short shorts-wearing father and posted it to Tumblr. And the father of seven has since become an internet sensation and "poster papa" for dress code-enforcing parents everywhere.

Scott added, "I know it sounds weird to embarrass her, but I wanted her to know she's of great worth."

The happy ending to this story, daughter Myley says she's learned her lesson, and realizes how much her dad loves her.
