"Cover him Up!"
Some years ago I designed a t-shit, and "hoodie" for a public radio station WBAI, wbai.org. The famous or as some think 'infamous' "Angel Shirt". It was very popular, but as you can imagine not all liked it.
I recall the station's business manager insisted I change the original design. In that version our hero up there was totally nude. She said,
"...Are you Crazy?!"
"Cover'em up or we can't issue it"
I said "...why not what's wrong with it?"
Said she. "I don't think our listeners are going to want to be walking around in some shirt with a guy on it with his damned 'Schlong' hanging out!"
"Cover him up or no deal!"
Well I could see that business was business so as you see our sweetie is somewhat more modest now,...thought I still think folks would have like his cute schlong...com'on it wasn't 'that' big.
The final product below there.
...Such a 'life' I've had.
