I’ve designed a t-shirt that is especially for programmers. It contains the simple hello world application, written in forty-seven different programming languages.

T-Shirt with Hello World in Forty-Seven Languages

Below is the “key”, for anyone interested. A few of these aren’t technically programming languages (like binary, QR), and a few are just frameworks within another language (like Angular, Swing). I’ve ordered one of the shirts myself and it looks pretty nice—I had to make sure of that before I offered it for sale. I’ll probably work on a version that works against a dark background, when I get the time.
