Few things can make a teenager squirm more than parents. They wear funny clothes and tell old, unfunny jokes.

But Dale Price may have earned a gold plaque in the Goofy Dads Hall of Fame.

When school bus routes were changed in American Fork, Utah, this year, 16-year-old Rain Price realized that the bus would go past his house every morning. And for 170 consecutive school mornings, his father, Dale, stood outside, waving goodbye in a different goofy costume.

Of course, Price blogged about it, too. And included photos.

We speak with Price about why he would do this to his son. And we ask you for your most embarrassing dad moments. Post your stories in the comments below. We'll share some of them next week.
