The world's most embarrassing dad

Unlike most mums, dads take unnatural amounts of pleasure in humiliating us.

Whether it’s cruelly beating us in a race, the week after we learnt to walk, or educating our friends on the joys of parental karma sutra, their behaviour often makes us wish for lesbian parentage. Yet while we might think that we’ve had it bad, it’s nothing compared to the daily plight of poor Rain Price.

The high schooler is waved off by his dad when he boards the school bus. Not ideal but not the worst. Problem is, Rain’s dad Dale also dresses up in a different costume every day of the week. From a mermaid to Princess Leia to a psychotic clown, Dale’s sheer enthusiasm for embarrassing his son knows no bounds.

We’re amused but also a little bit scared for Rain’s safety during breaktime…
