I like ugly and stupid t-shirts sometimes

For example, my most recent clothing purchase was the following:

The shirt was created to celebrate the Breakthrough of the Year in 2007 as noted by Science magazine. The breakthroughs were all the human genome sequence information. The t-shirt is designed from the annotated gene sequence map of human chromosome one.

Am I a huge nerd for buying this? Probably. Is it spectacularly ugly? of course it is. (Actually Heather in my lab told me it looks like little kids pajamas, but uglier). Will I continue to wear it because certain people I know can’t stand it? very likely.

We all know this isn’t the first time I have written about a stupid science t-shirt.  Does anyone else wear or at least think about these things?  Should I never wear it again?
