Here's a laugh from Debi Brown, from Coshocton, Ohio. Thanks, Debi. I laughed out loud! -MT

A teenage boy had just passed his driving test, and asked his father about when he can use the car.

"I'll make you a deal," the father said. "You bring your grades up from a C average 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, then agreed to his dad's offer.

A few weeks later, the teenager approached his father again about using the car.

"Son, you've brought your grades up," said the dad, "and I've observed that you've also been studying your Bible. But I'm disappointed to see that you haven't cut your hair."

"You know, Dad, I've been thinking a lot about that," said the boy, "and I've noticed in my Bible studies 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."

"Right," his father replied, "and did you also notice they all walked everywhere they went?"
