Breakfast Topic: Do you wear WoW in public?

There is only one reason I wear my WoW T-shirt in public, and that is to hear my favorite question: "Horde or Alliance?"

"Alliance!" I answer with such enthusiasm that you would think King Varian and the Alliance banner decorate my bedroom wall. More often than not, I get an impersonation of a snobbish blood elf look. It's safe to assume we don't share the same faction pride and I have obviously chosen wrong. My recovery plan: "Well, I have a 68 troll mage." My new Horde friend gives me a curt nod that would make any non-emotion showing orc proud. I'm welcomed into the strong ties of the Horde, perhaps due to the fact that I didn't roll a female blood elf -- or perhaps it's simply because I have a Horde toon that is above 20 and not a death knight.

Regardless of whether I get the blood elf look or not, it is always an interesting conversation. Now if only I could get everyone to talk about the drinking habits of dwarves ...

"Horde or Alliance?" When I wear that T-shirt in public, I'm guaranteed a few WoW conversations. So what do you wear when you go out to find your fellow Azerothians?
