Parents: Have you ever tried this psychological trick on your kids - when they're doing something stupid, you do the same thing to try and show them it's stupid?
Sometimes it backfires. But sometimes it works like a charm. It worked like a charm for Scott Mackintosh, the Utah father of 7 who tried to show his teenage daughter how inappropriate she looked wearing a pair of Daisy Duke short shorts to a family outing, by donning a pair of his own and parading around in public.
Teenage daughter Myley snapped these photos of her dad and posted them to tumblr for the whole world to see. Of course, they went viral and dad's point was very well made indeed.
Mr. Mackintosh said he would look like an "idiot" anytime if it gets the point across. No word on whether Myley changed her shorts for the family outing or not.
