COMEDIAN Joe Heenan has celebrated World Book Day – by sending his son to school dressed as Trainspotting psychopath Begbie.
Heenan, who is known for a string of visual jokes involving his offspring, posted a picture of his son in a white vest and fake moustache. The lad is holding his fist up and grinning.
Heenan, from Perth, tweeted fans: “He has to go to school dressed as a character from Scottish literature. So he’s Begbie.”
On last year’s World Book Day, Heenan sent his children to school as an Argos catalogue. His son – page 89 – was holding a hair dryer and his daughter – page 165 – was holding a toaster.
Responding to the father of two’s latest joke, fans tweeted about the photo.

@SuzeManic said: “Hope he has his heroine [sic] packed in his lunchbox”
In 2015, Heenan gave his daughter an empty box of Miller’s beer as replacement school bag – a masterpiece that quickly went viral.
Last year on April Fools day the trickster played the ultimate prank on his children by giving them an iPad – only for them to find the box empty.
