Several years ago I picked up this t-shirt for $2 in what was then a well-known store. I did not just pick-up one, but two of the t-shirts. ( I gave one to my boss.) As an educator I picked-up the t-shirt to use as an icebreaker with the introduction course to public relations. Besides, how many times do you see a non-sponsored t-shirt that boosts public relations? Even if I disagree with it. Now, the t-shirt is tacked on the bulletin board in my office and has transpired from a conversation starter in the classroom to a curiosity piece among office visitors. It is always interesting to see individuals initial reactions to the t-shirt when they visit my office. Some are perplexed, other laughs, and a few could careless about the t-shirt.
But I’d like to know what you think? Would you wear this shirt? Why or why not? Are you offended or is the t-shirt just another reminder as to how public relations practitioners are portrayed/stereotyped by other industries?
