The Awesomest Idea Ever

Sometimes it is necessary for parents to embarrass their children.  I am a firm believer in this philosophy.  I plan to be one of the most embarrassing dads ever.  But it will only be embarrassing because I will be so awesome that my kids minds will be blown.

Even though there are currently no kids coming our way, (I never see storks flying near our house.) it is still important for me to think of ways to expand my awesomeness for the sake of my children.  I just discovered a dad who brings awesomeness to a whole new level (and thus embarrasses his children.)

This guy dresses up in a different costume every day so that he can wave to his son as his school bus passes by on the way to school.  Apparently it started out as a fun thing to do at the beginning of school but he continued it all year long with different costumes.  The coolest thing?  He only lives a few miles from me.  I guess people in Utah are just awesome (or embarrassing, depending on your perspective.)

Check out this news clip about him.

Here are a few examples of his costumes.

Unfortunately, we live pretty close to the elementary, junior high and high school so if we are living in this same house my kids won't ride the bus.  I'll have to come up with something else equally as clever.  Meanwhile, you can see all of this guy's costumes at his website at

Let me know if you have any awesome ideas that will properly embarrass my future children.


  1. Just sing the songs that you sing to me and that will do it I am sure. You always know how to embarrass me so I have no worries about you finding ways to embarrass the children.

  2. I feel that in order to most fully embarrass all involved not only must it be documented online, it must also be witnessed by as many people as possible while occurring. So maybe if you could have some sort of large sign pointing to your house announcing what time your child leaves school, or you could maybe bring a lunch to school everyday dressed as a different star wars/star trek/star gate/star craft/anything involving stars/ I feel this could be fully manifested.

  3. I think just being you will sufficiently embarrass your children. I don't think it is anything that you will have to put any extra effort into. You will do just fine, don't worry.

  4. That guy is hilarious. I hope the stork visits your doorstep soon so I can see what you come up with!

  5. This is AMAZING. I think you should take after this guy, but you kinda need some kids first...

  6. If your children are anything like you, I don't think you will be able to embarrass them. Think about there anything that I could do that would embarrass you?
