It's simple and to the point. It acknowledges our role as frequent targets of anything teachers don't like. But then, I thought that this might be better:
|Pinata by DJOtaku CC-BY-NC-SA|
Again, it's pretty basic; but, it gets the message across. "Hey, staff, get your sticks and knock the stuffing out of us! You know you love it!" Unfortunately, we're not filled with treats. Maybe a pinata isn't the most appropriate graphic for the department. We then reflected upon the recent direction of the department. At that point, this seemed like the best idea:
|Lifesaver by emdot CC-BY|
Depressing, but authentic in reflecting the pall around the office. Maybe this was "the one." The sheer number of projects and initiatives to be completed in the next 10 days does feel a bit like drowning; however, not that many teachers view us as lifesavers...so back to the drawing board:
|Hindenburg - 1937 by Marco Crupi CC-BY-NC-ND|
Okay, so the Hindenburg doesn't translate all that well into a nice line drawing. But things are going down in spectacular flames and Nero is quite often off fiddling somewhere else...to mix in an anachronistic metaphor.
Any other suggestions out there to add a little hydrogen to the fire?
