Teacher Turns Yearbook Photo Into WWF Flashback

It’s the time of year when teachers are getting a little slap happy, but one Buckhorn Middle School teacher took it to a new—and permanent—level. Rusty Hughes, an eighth-grade, world history and broadcasting teacher, donned a unique getup for his yearbook photo this year. Rusty is seen wearing a feather boa and star-spangled do-rag for his annual photo, a nod to his interactive teaching style that keeps his students guessing, according to WHNT.

He told WHNT the style was inspired by Hulk Hogan circa 1980s. The boa came from his wife’s robe, but the rest of his outfit was already part of his wardrobe.

Well done, Coach Hughes.
