Dad wears Daisy Dukes

Scott Mackintosh doesn't normally wear super short-shorts like these, but effective parenting requires drastic measures. One night when the family was heading out to dinner, his daughter appeared in the trendy, buttock-exposing bottoms and refused to change. Scott was fuming, but he kept his cool, racing into his bedroom with a plan. "I grabbed some scissors and cut some old worn out pants into a set of short-shorts with the ends of the pockets hanging out the bottom," Scott writes on his family's blog. "There was only about an inch of material below the crotch of the shorts."
Scott wasn't planning on wearing his risqué outfit beyond the driveway, but when his kids didn't notice because they were glued to their phones, he decided to go all the way, wearing the short-shorts out to dinner and miniature golfing. Yep, that got her attention. Finally, the mortified teen refused to accompany her minimally-clad dad into the local ice cream parlor. When asked if she learned her lesson, Scott told Utah's KSL TV, "She's dressed a little bit better."
