Rob Ford T-Shirts turn scandal to profit

I smoked crack with Rob Ford T-shirt

Residents of Toronto might be sighing, heads down after allegations by Gawker and the Toronto Star that mayor Rob Ford has smoked crack cocaine — but the T-Shirt industry is taking advantage.

One website has on offer T-shirts with the printed slogan "Rob Ford Rocks," for $5. It says proceeds will go toward the Indiegogo campaign raising funds to buy the video that supposedly shows the mayor smoking crack. T-Shirts fit for reuse during Ford's next re-election campaign, should there ever be one.

Those seeking a potentially libelous slogan to sport on their backs might be intrigued by an image posted to Flickr this week, which shows a man standing next to a sign advertising T-Shirts for $15. The T-Shirts say "Rob Ford smokes crack."

And while everyone is busy branding the situation, why not produce a Rob Ford variation on British propaganda?
