"According to investigators, Paciano nagged his son to cut his hair since Joey grew it out like his idol in a Taiwanese television series popular in Manila."

laff. At least we know blaming pop stars to get out of any form of trouble isn't just an american thing.

If this is the case then i'd have to say he should get a "hero" tag for this. Guess it's all on how you look at things.

There once was a man from Manila
Who's son he threatened to killa
If the son didn't cut his hair
The father a firearm did bear
Now he's sharing a cell with some guy named Ella


Ok, so it's weak. They may (or may not) get better.

"Son, your hair is disgusting!"
"Dad, I'll wear it how I like, I'm 25!"
"Look here," -click- "Smith & Wesson agree with me on this."

Goddamn. Wonder what the guy's life would've been if he'd given his son a cut hair or two with that gun.

If you're going to do something stupid, please don't use a gun!! You're ruining it for law abiding gun owners

Just cut it off in his sleep.

Was it a mullet? Then the father would have a real reason to pull a gun on him.
 
2003-09-08 10:48:02 AM  
That was a real bad hair day.

I will NEVER understand why one person worries about another person's hair. I don't care who the person is to you, it's none of your business how someone else wears their hair. What, are they joined to you at the hip or something? Your co-joined twin? Even so, it's their hair. Just like you get to wear your hair the way you want to (in whatever tightarsed way you need), so do they, no matter how "out there" it might look to you.

Get a freaking life already.

GrandmaGoth: not a parent are ya?

You're a parent? Then I have a question: why DO you care so much how someone else appears? My mom always explained it as making her look bad; are all parents motivated by such selfish means? *smirk* (For the record, I've never gone much longer than a crew cut; I assure you she's just insane.)

Am I the only person that found asking someone named GrandmaGoth if she was a parent or not to be ironic and funny?
 
2003-09-08 12:02:04 PM  
That's jailarious.
 
2003-09-08 12:03:11 PM  
I bet the dad has a mullet. His son wants one too but the dad doesn't think his son is worthy of such a kickass hair-style!

That sure worked for Lorena Bobbitt.

I hope he made him get a mullet, hmmm maybe a rat tail would be better..... Perhaps the old Mullet-Rat Tail combo. Oh yes that will do.

Gimme a head with hair
Long beautiful hair
Shining streaming gleaming flaxen waxen
Won't you give me it down to there
Shoulder length or longer
Here baby there daddy everywhere mama mommy
Hair
Flow it, show it, long as I can grow it
My hair

My dad pointed a gun at me once. ONCE.

TX_Attitude:

I usually don't care what kind of hair cut people get, but I'll agree with you, people with mullets shiould be grabbed off the streets and shaved bald for that horror of a hairstyle.

[On Topic]

I've got long hair, but I keep it trimmed and clean. It's really not that hard to keep it clean looking, just go to a barber once every three monthes, get a plain trim, then have them clean up the edges where the shaggy looking crap is growing in.

Now I can understand this dad getting pissed off if his son had hair that he didn't bother trying to keep clean or neat loking. However, I can't understand the thought process which came up with this little equation:

(Son won't cut hair, wants to look like his idol) + (I want him to cut it off damnit!) = Barretta to the right temple

However, reading the article it makes more sense when you add on the rest of the equation that most of us don't know about:

(Son won't cut hair, wants to look like his idol) + ({I want him to cut it off Gad Damnit!} * {Alcoholic Beverages}) = Barretta to the right temple

I do have one other thing I want to say about this case. I sincerely hope my Dad doesn't read about this case and gets any ideas.

*Nervously thinks about his Dads rifles and compound hunting bow*
