Dad wears short shorts to teach daughter a lesson

Posted: Updated:
Utah -

Scott Mackintosh says his daughter was wearing what he considered "inappropriate and immodest" clothes, so he decided to "make a ‘small' statement on how her short-shorts maybe aren't as ‘cute' as she thinks."

He took a pair of jeans and cut them into "a tiny pair of shorts above the pocket". He also put on a t-shirt that reads "Best. Dad. Ever."

After the story went viral he wanted to clarify why he did it.

"I simply did this in hopes that my daughter would know of my great love for her and that she knows of her great worth," he said in a statement to Desert News. "Now that it has gone viral, I hope that young women everywhere understand their great worth. I will look like an idiot any day if that point gets across."

Mackintosh talks about the story behind him wearing short jean shorts to several public places in Utah on his wife's blog: Becky Mack's Blog of Mild Chaos.
