Who Wears Short Shorts? Dad Wears Short Shorts!

In this ever-evolving and socially-enlightened modern world of child rearing, parents are no longer permitted to scold, spank, or express disapproval of ANY KIND when their children step out of line - unless, of course, their religion permits "honor killings," in which case, all bets are off.
Anyway, the modern dad is now left with only one option for getting his wayward children to walk the line of moral decency: public humiliation.
Enter our pick for father of the year, Jason Hilley. Hilly's daughter, Kendall, is into dressing like "Daisy Duke," and Mr. Hilley decided to take action.
Hilley posted a video to Facebook on June 12, which has now been viewed 24 million times! Why is it so popular? Take a look:
The video begins as Hilley, dressed in EXTREMELY short shorts, and his son burst into the girl’s room for an impromptu education on public decency.
“Kendall, we have to have a talk,” the father begins, as a mortified Kendall raises a hand to her mouth.
“Get your shorts, we’re gonna see whose fit better,” Hilley continues of the “butt cutting shorts.”
“Which ones?” she asks, which her dad describes as “the new ones we bought that were supposed to be a lot longer.”
“I’m picking her up from school, with these on,” Mr. Hilley continues, rubbing and slapping his thigh.
In the days since the post went viral, the family "short-off" has generated 144,000 shares, 11,000 likes and 6,700 comments.
Let's hope Kendall doesn't own a thong bikini.
