Dad's short-shorts photo raises eyes around the world

Posted: Updated:

Who wears short-shorts? Why, the "Best. Dad. Ever.," of course!

But, how could this family have known. A simple post of a photo of dad wearing short-shorts went up at the family's Becky Mack's Blog of Mild Chaos blog. Then, suddenly the simple post, had done something spectacular! It went viral!

"My kids were using terms an old dad like me is not familiar with, such as; 70,000 notes on tumblr, favorited on twitter, re-Tweted, shared etc… Friends were reporting they were seeing it posted on Buzzfeed, Redneck sites and other random sites," Becky Mack wrote at Becky Mack's Blog of Mild Chaos.
