A Bit of Father's Day Humor....

The Barber of Coupe De Ville

by Author Unknown


A young boy had just gotten his driving permit. He asked his father who was a minister, if they could discuss his use of the car. His father said to him, "I'll make a deal with you. You bring your grades up, study the bible a little, and get your hair cut; then we'll talk about it."


A month later the boy came back and again asked his father if he could use the car. His father said, "Son, I'm really proud of you. You brought your grade up, studied the bible well, but you didn't get your hair cut!"


The young man waited a moment an then replied, "You know dad, I've been thinking about that. Samson had long hair, Moses had long hair, Noah had long hair, and even Jesus had long hair."


His father replied gently, "Yes son, and they walked everywhere they went."


Happy Father's Day to all the men in our lives!

Another reason for the DH not to cut his hair!
He's going through the 70s again I think.
