Genius, absolutely genius. It took planning, enthusiasm and many, many borrowed costumes, but one Utah dad became a local celebrity for waving at the bus. What started as a simple attempt to embarrass his son on his first day of school, turned into a very involved and well documented process. (Mom blogged about it all--and took photos!)

Among the 180 costumes: A pirate, a bride, a mermaid (complete with shell shaped bra), a giant chicken, he even dragged an old toilet outside to perch atop while reading the paper--of course, he took time to wave at the bus.
