After many New Yorkers took to the streets to celebrate the killing of Osama bin Laden, some saw an opportunity to make a quick buck.

Just north of the World Trade Center site yesterday, Hakim Robo, 52, of Harlem, peddled gray Osama shirts for $10 apiece.

Perhaps tacky, but definitely timely, one shirt read this: "Bin Laden Killed, End of Terror."
Another: "Justice at Last."

"As soon as it happened I wanted to buy the merchandise," said Robo, who bought an initial batch of eight from a distributor to see if there's an appetite. If it sells, I'll buy more."

Retailers online are also hoping to cash in on the jubilation surrounding bin Laden's demise.

At you can snag an "Osama bin Laden Dead LOL" T-shirt for $30. Or, for a little more, you can get an "Osama bin Laden World Hide and Go Seek Champion" shirt for $35.

Over at, you can score an "Osama bin Shot In the Head" T-shirt for $16.95.
