    (CNSNews.com) – Barbershops are popular with men and can therefore be a "good place" to provide information about fathering and resources for dads, President Barack Obama said Wednesday while dining at Kenny’s BBQ Smokehouse in Washington, D.C.

    Obama said barbershops are a good place to get the word out on parenting because that’s where “everybody hangs out.”

    “And then the reason the two older gentlemen are here is, as I was mentioning, barbershops are where a lot of men go – and we want to work with them – we want to work with barbershops to figure out how we can get better information to fathers about resources that are available to them so they can find job training programs; they can find support groups for fathers,” Obama is quoted as saying in a partial transcript mailed to media outlets by the White House.

    Please tell me this is some sort of "Onion" faux news thing. Please? Maybe a really late April Fool's joke?

    This can't possibly be a real story. :eek:

    Who in the fuck "hangs out" in a barbershop?

    I have a hot South Korean chick do my hair - by appointment - in a salon.

    I come in, sit down, we chat about Korea, food, the families, the kids, etc.

    She cuts my hair, gives me a massage and a blow job, I swipe the credit card - I leave.

    very very cool.... :D

    Is this gonna be like enlisting truck drivers as agents for Homeland Security. What idiot is gonna argue about parenting with a guy who has lethal sharp instruments in their hands?

    Here it comes... A subsidy for barbers who counsel errant fathers...
