I heard this joke years ago in junior high. When I received it in an email, it put a grin on my face and wanted to share it here.
A boy had just gotten his driver’s license permit and asked his father if they could talk about his use of the car. His father said he’d make a deal with his son.
“If you bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible a little, get your hair cut, and we’ll talk about the car”.
The boy thought about that for a moment and decided he would settle for the offer and they agreed on it.
After about seven weeks his father said, “Son, I’ve been real proud. You brought your grades up and I’ve observed that you have been studying the Bible, but I’m real disappointed you haven’t gotten your hair cut”.
The young man paused a moment and then said, “You know, Dad, I’ve noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair, and there’s a strong argument that Jesus had long hair.”
To this the father replied, “Did you also notice they all walked everywhere they went?”
