A Brain-Teaser For You

This stumper is inspired by a guy at work. I haven't actually met him, but I pass his workstation sometimes on my way to the lab.

Context: You have been hired as a contractor for a major consumer electronics firm in some kind of software support position. It is a temporary assignment, but presumably you'd like to impress people so if the department gets an opening, you'd be under consideration and could score some kind of full-time job. There is no official dress code, but most people conform to a dress-casual style.

The Question: What do you wear to work?

  1. A dress shirt and some "nice" jeans
  2. A sweater and some slacks
  3. A suit and tie
  4. A well-worn black t-shirt with a large Magic: The Gathering logo surrounded with swords and flames, worn multiple times per week

Stumped? Here's a hint: you also have significant b.o.

Ignore this block if you somehow can see it. It's a hack to force the 'yieldbox' div to be as wide as the viewport allows, even if the content isn't wide.
