PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The announcement of Osama bin Laden’s death provided a memorable moment, but if you want a little something extra to mark the event, you don’t have to helicopter into an estate in Pakistan to get it.

There’s been a cottage industry in bin Laden stuff for years (toilet paper bearing his image, for example). But no sooner had his body gone to into the sea than eBay offered everything from newspapers declaring “OBL DOA” to an “Osama Flakes Fish Food” decal and a bin Laden pin-stick doll.binladenebay2 Sellers On eBay Offer Bin Laden Death Memorabilia

There are tee shirts galore. One riffs on milk ads: “Got Osama? Yep”, it says. “Paging Mr. Shaymalan,” another says, “I see dead terrorists.” There’s Uncle Sam extending a single finger salute to the words Yo! Bin Laden, Gotcha! Or Osama’s mug covered by the words “Hide and Seek Champ Found 5.1.2011.”

And to put on a shirt, a smiley-face patch with a bullet between the eyes, which reads “Have a nice day, someplace else.”
