Thursday, June 23, 2005 | News for Dallas, Texas | Latest News | News for Dallas, Texas | Latest News: "It was the gubernatorial gaffe turned golden goose.

While Gov. Rick Perry and his camp may be trying to trying to distance from his ill-timed “Adios, mofo” remark to a reporter, one entrepreneur has embraced the quip as a moneymaking opportunity.

One day after the “mofo” heard around the state,, a Web site that makes personalized merchandise, was hawking T-shirts bearing the governor’s headshot and the famous words.

An Austin political blogger who goes by “Charlie” says he’s responsible for the shirts, tote bags, sweat shirts, coffee mugs and bumper stickers. Charlie declined to give his last name, saying he wanted to remain anonymous because he runs the satirical political blog

“As soon as I saw the video, immediately after I stopped laughing, I said, ‘This has got to be a T-shirt,’” he said. “We were selling them the next day.”"
