I have a slightly different view of this.

The phrase "I survived the Incubator" and "all I got was this lousy T- 
shirt" seem incongruous, and combining them doesn't quite work. "I  
survived..." stands alone.

And I agree with Noel that the survival meme isn't quite the self- 
deprecating message I'm looking for.

How about "Our project incubated at Apache and all I got was this  
lousy T-shirt"?
