A souvenir shop in the popular Houhai tourist area of Beijing has recently become quite famous because it is selling products with the image of U.S. President Barack Obama's face imprinted over that of China's late leader Mao Zedong, CCTV.com reports.
T-shirts and pouches with the "Oba Mao" design, a creative idea by shop owner Liu Mingjie, have attracted the attention of many foreign tourists.
"We usually sell souvenirs printed with historical figures," Liu said. "Oba Mao is my new creation. The souvenirs with this logo are quite popular among visitors, foreign tourists in particular."
The shop has sold thousands of products bearing the Oba Mao design since stocks arrived just over a month ago, Liu said.
The same liberals and lefties who consider it a deep insult to associate Obama with Hitler will doubtless love this one.
It not like they oppose the idea of totalitarianism per se.
Lets start a petition to rename Che Stadium in New York to Obama Stadium...
