34. It reminds me of Ben Franklin....
Ben was a freakin' rock star in France. Pill boxes with his face painted on them, women wore a hair style that mimicked his stupid hat...people couldn't get enough of him.

The stuff being sold on every street corner in DC during last week's inauguration cracked me up. This was the first inauguration experience for me so I don't know if all the Presidents get this treatment, but Obama's picture and name were plastered on just about anything you can imagine.
