The Ray Nagin "Chocolate City" T-Shirt Craze!

Drudge links to this:

T-shirts making fun of Mayor Ray Nagin's remark that New Orleans would once again be a "chocolate city" are in high demand, with recent orders coming in from overseas countries, according to a Local 6 News report.
A company said it has filled thousands of orders of T-shirts featuring Nagin in a top hat as Willy Wonka. The shirt has the words "Willy Nagin and the Chocolate Factory" printed on it...

The company in question is here. The person responsible for that appears to be Dolph Federico, owner of Pelican Graphics in Kenner and a current or former policeman in that city.
Other possibile TShirts and other goods are those featuring "Recall Nagin", with Mayor Ray dressed like Willy Wonka: link.
There are more here, including various products with "New Orleans: Chocolate Capitol of the USA" or "A Hurricane can wash away the houses, but not the chocolate".
UPDATE: Goodbye Willy Nagin, hello Forest Ray Gump: link
