Dad Dares His Kid to Wear a Hot Dog Suit For School Pictures With Hilarious Results

This kid is a legend.

School photos are a long-held tradition where parents dress their kids up in their nicest clothes so that mom and dad will have a photo of their son or daughter that they can look back on fondly long after the kid has moved out and started living a life of their own. But one set of parents turned the tradition on its head when they let their son opt out of wearing a button up and slacks in favor of a hot dog costume.

Craig Arsenault and his wife Kari dared their son Jake to dress like a hot dog for his school picutre at Biddleford Intermediate School in Maine. The school agreed and needless to say, the photo turned out amazing.

“My wife and I dared our son to wear a hotdog costume for school pictures,” Craig wrote on Facebook. “The school let him do it, and I couldn’t be happier.”

Fatherly IQ
  1. When shopping for toys, what's the most important quality you look for?
    That it's fun.
    That it is educational.
    That it will keep my child's attention.
    That it won't drive me insane.
Thanks for the feedback!

Unsurprisingly, the photo quickly went viral on Facebook, as it has been shared over 31,000 times in less than a week, with over 4,000 users commenting to express how much they enjoyed seeing the photo. Kari even shared that the photo ended up getting covered by the local news and showed a video of Jake looking extremely excited that his costume landed him on TV.

Could this launch a new tradition where kids get to wear ridiculous costumes for school photos instead of nice clothes? We certainly hope so, as it would be a lot more fun for everyone, especially the kids.
