Backslash 

I won, bitches! The results of the Detroit mayoral election were an upset to say the least — and just plain upsetting to many — but humorists can find a silver lining (and some pocket-lining) in knowing they’ll have no shortage of material.

The folks over at kingkwame.com are selling shirts with a photo of the Kwaminator, adorned in a Burger King crown before a backdrop of money, with the slogan, “I won, bitches!” The shirts are sold via the site cafepress.com, which means you can get the image printed on everything from baby bibs to doggie T’s.

The pranksters at kingkwame have also created a fake myspace profile for our fearless leader at myspace.com/kingkwame. His headline is “I won! I can’t fucking believe it!” and his interests are listed as “Hoes, Bitches and Chedda.” (For all you not fluent in ghettospeak, chedda = money.)

You can also find “fukwame” shirts at cafepress.com/hoopt, and “Don’t blame me, I voted for Hendrix” stickers and baseball caps at cafepress.com/detroiter. Of course, the media lynch mob T-shirts can’t be far behind.

Bottomline: You’ll be well-dressed for the next four years — after all, you can bet the Kwamster will be.
