Teacher Dale Irby, 63 from Dallas, Texas wore the exact same outfit for the past 40 years of yearbook portraits.
It started off purely by accident, he says.
“I was so embarrassed when I got the school pictures back that second year and realized I had worn the very same thing as the first year,” Irby recalled.
His wife, Cathy, a language arts teacher, dared him to repeat the outfit for his third yearbook photo. Irby thought it would be funny to extend the prank for five years. “After five pictures,” he said, “It was like, ‘Why stop?’”
