Many years ago, I did something a little dumb and a lot funny at my workplace. I put my picture in a mosaic depicting past winners of “teacher of the year” awards. I did blog about it at the time, but apparently I lost this article in the move from Joomla to WordPress for my blogging engine.
The gist of the idea was that I didn’t replace the picture of the Professor, I simply added one of my picture to a plaque where no picture was present. A blank plaque, with just the name and the year.
It took a little while, but people noticed after a few weeks. The picture stayed up for a whole year. It was removed when we moved from our original office space to the temporary space, two years ago.
This is the picture I used at the time:
I made it black and white – like the other award winners – and just stuck it up there.
Well today while walking back from lunch, I walked past the Faculty of Education’s version of the same mosaic. Guess who’s picture they had there!
I never thought the original would be funnier than what I had done. 😉
Made my day.
