A dad in Utah decided he would put on a pair of short shorts to try to teach his teenage daughter a lesson.

Scott Mackintosh took a pair of his jeans and cut them off really short. They look like daisy dukes. He is not happy with the outfits his daughter has been wearing. He says her closthes are just too skimpy. The story is now all over social media sites and has taken off in a big way. Mackintosh says "I heard my wife ask our daughter if she would please change into some longer shorts before leaving [for dinner]. She said NO!" Mackintosh wrote on his wife's blog, Becky Mack's Blog of Mild Chaos.

"Instead of turning her response and disrespectful attitude into a major battle, I decided to make a 'small' statement on how her short-shorts maybe aren't as 'cute' as she thinks!"

He also put on a "Best. Dad. Ever." T-shirt, which he put on to go out to dinner with his family.  He told the Today show "I was absolutely going for shock value and embarrassment."  His daughter Myley actually looks like Miley Cyrus, was disgusted with her dad and asked him why he was dressed like that. It didn't end with dinner. Dad took the whole family to play miniature golf and then out for ice cream, where his daughter refused to get out of the car. She did put the pictures of her father to her Tumblr account, which is drawing thousands of curious fans today.
