Thursday Special ~ Long Hair

A teenage boy had just passed his driving test and inquired of his father as to when they could discuss his use of the car.
His father said he’d  make a deal with his son:

‘You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible a little, and get your hair cut. Then we’ll talk about the car.’

The boy thought about that for a moment, decided he’d settle for the offer, and they agreed on it.

After about six weeks his father said,

‘Son, you’ve brought your grades up and I’ve observed that you have been studying your Bible, but I’m disappointed you haven’t had your hair cut.

The boy said,

‘You know, Dad, I’ve been thinking about that, and 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 even strong evidence that Jesus had long hair.’

You’re going to love the Dad’s reply:



‘Did you also notice they all walked everywhere they went?’

With muchly thanks to the hairy Hindu who happened to send me this tale!

    I’ve noticed that some men bald on top, take advantage with long hair elsewhere.

    BTW I’ve been listening to British books & KISS, KISS, KISS is said at the end of messages in the book. That explains Nancy’s XXX (OOO) at the end of her comments. The Irish must do the kiss, kiss thing too.

    BHB – Men with receding hair and ponytails have been around for a long time… did it begin with Flower Power?

    Hairy Hindus are not bereft of a sense of humour. One such hairy Hindu came up with this one:
    Wu, the old Chinese waiter at the Mye Long Dong Chinese Restaurant, is always being teased by Colonel Wimple and his cronies, whenever they come to eat. Finally, one day, as Wu is serving the dessert and coffee, Colonel Wimple leans back in his chair, puffs on his big cigar, and announces in a loud voice, “Okay, Chink! We have been teasing you for a long time now. So I guess from now on we will stop playing jokes on you. What do you say?”

    The wizened old waiter pauses for a moment, then says with a smile, “Okie Dokie! You no jokie, me no pee in the coffee!”
