[Balin] You have to go to task in the city

A woman sometimes wears a T-shirt bearing the logo of a popular corporation. The woman does not work for the company, nor does she have any strong feelings towards it, so why does she do it?

Does the logo have some other meaning? Does it contain the name of the corporation? A picture? A letter? A number? An abstract symbol? Does she know that it's that corporation's logo? Does she have any relevant connection to the corporation (e.g. she doesn't work for it, but maybe she knows someone who works there)? Does the T-shirt have anything else relevant on it? Is the color relevant? Size?

Is the name of the corporation relevant? Is what they do relevant?

Does she wear the T-shirt in specific situations? In public? When she's around certain people?

Weight relevant? Hair color? Eye color? Skin color? Is it something physical? Would a random stranger be able to get the joke? Or would they have to know some relevant information about her that wasn't obvious by looking at her?

Is her job relevant? a hobby of hers? anything about her family?

Does she do something for her friends that is similar to what the company does? (e.g. she's good at troubleshooting internet issues, so she jokingly wears a t-shirt with an ISP's logo whenever one of her friends asks her to help with their internet)
