Ahh, thanks for the explanation.
I had guessed the T-Shirt refers to a Dilbert cartoon(*). (But probably
it might be just the other way round)
I'm just going through this. We assume that we are trying to learn
dressage on a dead horse...
(see e.g. http://www.little-idiot.de/teambuilding/DastotePferd.pdf -
sorry only German)

(*)
In the cartoon, Dilbert has been asked to share his "best practices". He
explains (with slide show)
- the project got to a slow start
- then came the relocation
- the reorganization
- the merger
- the lay-offs
- finally the whole industry changed and the opportunity evaporated
- so we classified the unspent budget as "savings" and gave everyone a
T-Shirt.
At this point the PHB asks: "You have been asked to show your best
practices - what are you implying ?"
