The world's most embarrassing dad?
A US teenager suffered the embarrassment of his dad waving him off to school - in a different fancy dress costume every day for a year.
Dale Price, from American Fork, near Salt Lake City, waved his son off in costume every morning of the 180-day Utah school year, reports the local Daily Herald.
It started when Mr Price and wife Rochelle thought it would be fun embarrass their 15-year-old son by waving to him as he boarded the bus on the first day of the year.
Mr Price said: "Later I overheard him talking to her, saying, "Mom, don't let Dad go out there again". What a challenge."
For the next 179 school days, Price waved goodbye to his son dressed as characters including Elvis Presley, Batgirl, the Little Mermaid, Princess Leia and Little Red Riding Hood.
Sometimes, he used props - most notably a porcelain toilet he once hauled onto his porch to use as a throne while reading his local paper.
Rain Price said that while he initially found the daily routine "really embarrassing," he eventually got used to his dad's antics.
"The last couple of months it has turned into more entertainment," he told the Herald.
"Sometimes the driver says 'enjoy the show," Rain added. "We all laugh. Everybody else on the bus learned to like it a lot sooner than I did. It wasn't their dad dressing up like a fool."
