Dale Price loves a good laugh and practical jokes.  The school bus came down their street for the first time and his parents went out to wave goodbye to embarrass their son, Rain.  What began as a simple joke, soon became a fun spectacle for those nearby.  Yahoo has more:

"And so began Dale’s hazing ritual that continued every day for the rest of his son's school year. The first day may have been the most shocking for Rain, but in the days to follow, the surprises kept coming.

Since the fall, Dale has waved at his son in 180 different outlandish costumes. The second day of school he wore a football helmet and jersey, and in the months that followed he opened the front door dressed as a blushing bride, a superhero, a Star Trek fan, Michael Jackson, and a giant chicken.  One day he even lugged an old toilet bowl onto the street and sat on it reading a newspaper, stopping to wave as the bus rolled by.

Over time, Rain's most humbling moment became his most anticipated. "The first day of high school...it was really embarrassing," Rain tells the Herald.  "But the last couple of months it has turned into more entertainment."

Dale borrowed outfits from neighbors and kept the cost under $50.00 over the year.  His wife, Rochelle, photographed the daily outfits and posted them on their blog, Wave At The Bus.
Dale has become a local celebrity, an internet superstar and brought laughter to his home and neighbors.
