Barack Obama Washington, May 4 (ANI): Just hours after US President Barack Obama announced that Osama bin Laden has been killed in Pakistan, vendors are trying to make a quick buck by hawking T-shirts, mugs and merchandise.

A street vendor at the McPherson Square Metro station in Washington is receiving amazing response to his latest merchandise, t-shirts celebrating Osama Bin Laden’s death.

The shirt costs 10 dollars and features a fake newspaper page with a photo of Osama and the blaring headline, “Public Enemy #1 Is Dead,” reports the Washington Post.

Another t-shirt on sale for 32 dollars reads, “It Took Obama To Get Osama.” A button for 2.45 dollars blares “Voted Off the Planet” and has a picture of Laden with cross hairs superimposed over his head.

Cashing in on the strong sentiments of Americans over the killing of the mastermind behind the World Trade Centre attacks, companies and vendors are selling the merchandise like hot cakes.

CustomInk, a Northern Virginia T-shirt maker, has received more than a thousand inquiries about printing Laden T-shirts, company officials said.

Zazzle and CafePress, web sites which let users create and sell custom products online, have been flooded with T-shirts, bumper stickers, coffee mugs, trucker hats and key chains celebrating President Obama, the Navy SEALs and the demise of Laden.

Coffee drinkers can sip their morning joe with a “Happy NoSama Day” mug, selling for 15 dollars on CafePress. And for those with a sweet tooth, Furin’s in Georgetown has baked cupcakes with simple messages including ‘Adios Bin Laden’ and ‘Go SEALs!’ (ANI)
