The folks over at 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, 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 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.)
