The funniest interview with Mullis talked about his "art", which was (if I 
recall correctly) female nudes with fractals projected on them.  He 
said something to the effect that when he gave a talk, he liked to show 
his art off as well.

His support of Duesbergs' HIV conspiracy theory makes it evident that 
a Nobel is no guarantee of clear thinking (Shockley, anyone?).
