Authorities in Illinois say a man accused of operating a methamphetamine lab out of his home was caught wearing a Breaking Bad t-shirt. Is this life imitating art, or was the man just paying homage to Walter White, the greatest fictional meth cook of all-time?

NBC Chicago reports that officers with the Cook County Sheriff's Office found discovered chemicals, burners, beakers, and instructions for preparing controlled substances inside of Daniel Kowalski's La Grange Highlands home on Monday evening. Though the lab wasn't active, authorities also found a dozen jars of psychedelic mushrooms. 

Kowalksi, 21, wore a "Los Pollos Hermanos" t-shirt in his mugshot, an ode to the merciless Gus Fring's legit front for his meth dealings. 

                                                   

Furthermore, NBC Chicago adds that this is the second time in under a year that a meth lab was discovered inside of Kowalski's residence. He faces a string of meth-related charges, as well as possession of drug paraphernalia. 

Clearly a fan of the show, he could've learned something from Walt and Gus about discretion.
