This parent proves there's no limit when it comes to improvisation...

Waking up to find out you've forgotten fancy dress day at your children's school happens to every parent at least once. 

But, when this dad realised it was World Book Day on Thursday morning, he dealt with it in a legendary fashion.

Totally unfazed by his lack of preparation, Joe Heenan sent his kids in with a toaster and hairdryer -  otherwise known as "pages 89 & 165 of the Argos catalogue".


And if you thought that was a lazy attempt, you'd be forgiven for thinking football star Mark Owen sending his son in AS HIMSELF (with a copy of his biography) wasn't too far behind.

Funny though...
