This PE Teacher Has Been Taking Goofy Annual School Pictures For 6 Years Now, And Here Are 7 Of Them

You know, something clicks in most every man’s head when they become surrounded by kids, whether by their own children or because of work in a school (or both). A certain kind of humor starts developing in their minds—and it ain’t necessarily dad jokes—that you can’t explain, but also can’t stop laughing at.

Meet Ryan Olson, a dad and school teacher who has been going viral because of his several-year streak of very themed photos where he dresses up in very appropriate PE attire for the school picture.

So, meet Ryan Olson, a father of two lovely kids and a 7-year physical education teacher at St. Cloud Area State School in Saint Cloud, Minnesota. For the past several years, like many students and other school teachers, Ryan also has been partaking in school picture day, except there’s a bit of a twist…

Instead of doing what many teachers are prompted to do—being semi-professional with their pictures, at the very least—Ryan decided he needed to one-up the PE aesthetic in his school pictures.

This resulted in some of the most hilarious snaps the internet has seen thus far. Each year, Ryan would wear a different stereotypical PE teacher outfit or would pose with various sports equipment, doing a variety of grins as if he was celebrating being a physical education teacher to the fullest.

Instead of his regular or formal teacher attire, he went with a more hilarious PE teacher approach

The first year’s outfit was a white shirt plus black PE shorts with the complementary basketball and iconic whistle, while many other years, it was the same shorts with a black and white striped shirt to highlight that very PE teacher belly, all the while holding everything from badminton rackets to croquet hammers.

There were also years when Ryan took a bit of a different approach, namely the 2018-2019 school picture where he’s being ultra patriotic by sporting red-white-blue shorts with a very redneck flannel shirt and a bald eagle t-shirt underneath whilst standing, bowling ball and pin in hand, in front of the American flag.

This year, he also did Joe Exotic, wearing the iconic white hair with a whole lot of denim and sporting leather cowboy boots for good measure. Too bad there was no tiger in the picture, but hey, he pulled off the Tiger King very well!

Ryan’s wife shared a handful of these photos spanning the years 2014 through to 2020 on her Facebook, explaining the context of it all.

“My husband is an elementary phys ed teacher. His school pictures have been escalating these past few years and at some point should be revealed… I don’t know how it could get worse: just a peek at the past few years’ school photos,” explained Lindsey Olson, Ryan’s wife, in the Facebook post.

And the post blew up, garnering over 23,000 various Facebook reactions as well as nearly 40,000 shares. Many pointed out just how hilarious it all is, saying that he looks like a super fun PE teacher if he’s doing things like this and cheering him on.
