Teacher Wears Same Yearbook Photo Outfit 40 Years In A Row

Mark-Potts by Mark-Potts on Jul. 02, 2013

Dale Irby is a man of integrity. He commits to a joke no matter how long it could last. At least, he did after his wife dared him to.

Irby was a sports teacher at a Dallas, Texas school for 40 years. He wore comfortable clothes normally but needed something presentable so he chose a shirt and vest. Then, he accidentally chose the same outfit the next year. At first, he was embarrassed. But his wife dared him to do it again so he did. Then he kept doing it for his entire teaching career.

We here at Break salute your commitment, Mr. Irby.
