If someone wanted to torture my kids to get them spill the beans on some sort of top secret information, I think giving them a haircut would be a good rout to take.
Although, it could very well be that Josh is crying over those 70's sideburns formed out of all of the falling locks clinging to his cheek. I'd cry too, if I had bushy sideburns that made me look like a 6-year-old man from a by-gone disco era.
Cry on, Josh. Cry on.
