1) To wear brightly coloured jeans giving the impression of being gay.
2) Believing one is dressed appropriately when you actually look like a hobo
3) Making 'Sex Face' or appearing drug fucked whilst doing something complicated, preferably while playing drums
4) Constantly being treated like the centre of in-jokes, but really they only make fun of you because it requires less thinking.

Tom: Dan is our Dom Howard
Stacey: Is that because he's such a good drummer?
Tom: no, he just pulls sex faces when he drums, and he looks like a hobo
