Arnold Schwarzenegger finally answered a big one. Question: When does a fashion faux pas become a fashion F-you? Answer: When a husband wears a t-shirt out in public that says "I SURVIVED MARIA" with the dates of their marriage written on the back while attempting to settle divorce proceedings with his betrayed wife who discovered he fathered a child with another woman.

Out for a bike ride on Sunday in Santa Monica, Arnold Schwarzenegger was spotted wearing just such a shirt, according to TMZ. And while utterly tasteless, there's apparently more to the terrible t-shirt tale.

We found out ... Arnold got the shirt last November, during a farewell party for the Governator's staff. The shirts were actually designed by Maria's staff, as a joke. The shirt they presented to Arnold had 2007 crossed out and 1977 scribbled above -- that's the year Arnold and Maria started dating.

Reports indicate that Maria and Arnold have not been warring during their divorce process, which makes the insensitive wardrobe choice even more baffling.
