That was how we invited the DC staff to participate in Loud Shirt Day, one of a variety of crazy morale events dreamed up by Robyn McBryde and yours truly back in the 1980s. The staff gathered in the Production Department and watched each contestant emerge from the statroom in all their eye-blasting finery.
Everybody voted for their favorite and the winner received a Superman tie that was created by my wife Laurie.
|Len Wein and Ed Hannigan in floral motifs|
|Pat Bastienne and Joe Orlando went with stripes|
|Bob LeRose sampled the refreshments; Robyn McBryde hand-crafted her shirt|
|Todd Klein felt his tie completed the ensemble; John Holowski didn't need one|
|Helen Vesik chose a hand-made sweater; Julia Sabbagh demonstrated her art skills|
|Yours truly shows off the prize; winner Todd Klein wears it proudly|
|And if the shirts weren't eye-numbing enough, here is your truly in front of the infamous yellow wallpaper that graced the DC offices at 666 Fifth Avenue|
