Man Busted For Starting Meth Lab WHILE Wearing Breaking Bad Shirt

It's what Alanis Morissette might call "ironic," don't you think?

Cook County police found a burgeoning drug lab outside of Chicago on Monday evening where they busted 21-year-old Daniel Kowalski with 12 jars of psychedelic mushrooms and all the ingredients to start cooking his own methamphetamine.

Oh yeah, and he was wearing a Breaking Bad t-shirt!

This guy really hurts arguments that media doesn't negatively influence behavior, but we can probably assume it's a pretty isolated case.

Most people outgrow the "jumping off a roof after watching Superman" phase around seven years old. Also, most kids identify with SUPERMAN and not a meth dealer.

Maybe just be more honest and wear an "I'm with stupid" shirt next time?

U.S. District Court Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman had this to say about the momentous decision:
