That’s an interesting picture, yet it doesn’t resemble the other pictures I’ve seen. All the pictures I’ve seen clearly show either (a) the 10-triangle top surface of the “hat”, with the six triangles touching the “brim” forming a hexagon; or (b) the underside of the hat with the pockets full of DNA appearing as two kidney-shaped objects within.



So it’s named for Mimi on the Drew Carey show because she was hideous and wore blue eye shadow?
