Fathers are hardworking role models, but they are also notorious for finding new ways to embarrass their children. Bad puns are called “Dad Jokes” for a reason!
One Orlando dad struck out in style to teach fellow fathers a new way to poke fun at their teenagers while teaching an important lesson in the process.
When Jason Hilley noticed that his 14-year-old daughter Kendall was sporting a tiny pair of jean shorts, he reacted the way most fathers would.
“I said, ‘Kendall, take my debit card and buy yourself shorts that fit,'” Hilley told Today. “She got on her computer and did just that.”
With that, the problem seemed solved. However, a few days later, Hilley realized that he hadn’t quite driven his lesson about modesty home. Kendall again attempted to leave the house in a prohibited pair of shorts.
“I asked, ‘Why aren’t you wearing your new shorts?’ And she goes, ‘These are my new shorts!'”
Rather than ground his daughter, Hilley got the idea for a worse “punishment” that would scare Kendall, and potentially all her Facebook friends, away from short shorts forever.
Hilley entered Kendall’s bedroom rocking his own pair of cutoff jeans, insisting that they had “to have a talk.” Unsurprisingly, Kendall was mortified by the hilarious scene.
Her mother, Alison Hilley, recorded the entire event. Viewers can hear her laughing behind the camera.
“Get your shorts,” her husband said. “We’re going to see whose fit better.”
Hilley joked that he’d wear the shorts to pick his daughter up from school if she didn’t comply. Kendall obeyed, bursting into a fit of giggles as she pulled her new pair of shorts on.
The two compared their similar garments for the camera, which Hilley described as “butt cut shorts.” Kendall attempted to argue that her shorts were appropriate, but her argument was quickly shut down.
“These aren’t even that short,” Kendall said.
“No, neither are mine,” Hilley said in response.
“You wear yours out in public? I will wear mine! Parenting 101!” Hilley captioned the video.
Father and daughter posed for a side-by-side photo in their shorts. In the picture, Kendall can’t seem to stop laughing.
“Who wears short shorts?” Hilarious dads, apparently! We’re certain this will be a fashion lesson Kendall will never forget.
