: Tall Tales From Down the Street! (Humor)

Tall Tales From Down the Street! (Humor)

Long hair is not the act of rebellious teens and more...they sport a number of hair styles that drive their parents crazy.  Take the fellow that lives down the street.  The boy has just passed his driving test and wanted to discuss his use of the car with his father.

School Shot (Mike Mays SXC)His father said he'd make a deal.  "You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, go to church on Sunday, and get a reasonable hair cut. Then we'll talk about the car."

The boy thought about that for a moment, decided he'd settle for the offer, and they agreed on it.

After about six weeks his father said, "Son, you've brought your grades up and you have been going to church, but I'm disappointed you haven't done anything with your hair."

The boy said, "You know, Dad, I've been thinking about that.  But I've learned in church that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair...and there's even strong evidence that Jesus had long hair."
Walking (Philippe Ramakers SXC)
His father replied, "Did you also notice they all walked everywhere they went?"

 It's a new week, smile and make the most of it!

The teens think they are really smart, but lack real world experience to really pull it off.  LOL
