Obama For Maniacs

Around the world, savvy entrepreneurs are saying "yes we can" to having the audacity to cash in on Barack Obama's name in the hope of making a lot of money
Tee shirts celebrating the victory of President-elect Barack Obama are offered for sale at a shop on Michigan Avenue, Chicago
He is in the Playing cards too...

He is in Posters...

Ha ha.. he has paper doll doppelgangers...

He can provide the time...

... and protection. It seems there's no end to novel items aimed at a market of shoppers fuelled by November 5 optimism.

Obama-mania has taken the world by storm. In Athens, medallions displaying Obama in the likeness of Greek mythological hero Hercules can be found at tourist spots.

In Bosnia, clothing company Borac has started manufacturing Obama suits that are selling like hotcakes in the country and in neighbouring Croatia.

Africa hasn't seen such a commercial rush over a personality since Nelson Mandela. Traders are selling low quality Obama T-shirts and pirate VHS copies of his victory speech...

...and he has become an unlikely figurehead for Kenya's Ministry of Health.

Two towns called Obama, which means "small shore" in Japanese, are already promoting their names and selling T-shirts, chopsticks and traditional sweets.

In cyberspace, a Super Mario-style game entitled Super Obama World, depicts a pixelated president warding off enemies of the state...

...and a pornography peddler has put a $10,000 tag on the domain name...What !!! ?????

"There could be a huge Obama industry over the next four years. But it has to be remembered that while some people could make a lot of money, a lot of people won't," said Robert Churnley, a London-based American international marketing consultant.

Of course the man himself hasn't done too badly from his status as international phenomenon. His books, The Audacity of Hope and Dreams From My Father, top best-seller lists worldwide.

Why We Are Excited About Obama ? .. why Obama became mania for the people ?.. I really don't know, but am sure that people are taking advantages by selling their products in name of Obama.. plz stop it !!
