When news breaks, someone will be around to make a buck off of it.
All one needs to do is search eBay to find gaudy trinkets related to September 11 for sale. Even more hideous are the miscreants who dug through their grandmother's attic trying to find anything with the World Trade Center emblazoned on it to sell as commerative items, or the enterprising folks who are making money off of the war on terrorism.
It's never too early to start Christmas shopping. For the kiddies, we have Axis of Evil darts.
Is your postman special to you? Then why not buy him this WTC memorial print with the Postal Creed on it?
For the person who spends a lot of time in the bathroom, you could make his ummm...movements more enjoyable with this bin Laden toilet paper!
For the testosterone-heavy man in your life, there's an American Brass Balls coffee mug
For the techno geek in the family, there's this Osama mouse pad, because you know that every time you sit at the computer, that's the face you want to see.
Make staring at the clock even more depressing by ordering your "Remember 911" time piece!
What better way to get the kiddies involved in the war on terrorism than a bin Laden pinata? Crack his head open, get rewarded with goodies. The kids win, and terrorism doesn't!
My favorite item by far is the John Travolta Scientology Minister September 11 Raincoat!
I'm sure there are thousands more trinkets - decorative plates and tasteless t-shirts and velvet paintings and whatever else people can plaster the twin towers on. Are people really buying this stuff? Does anyone actually want that John Travolta jacket or a 9/11 clock? I wonder how much money total has been made by greedy leeches off of this day.
Have you seen any other novelty items related to September 11? I've become obsessed with this now, I don't know why. Maybe it's a morbid curiosity, just to see what kind of get-rich-quick schemes will go through a person's mind even in the face of 3,000 dead people.
