23-Year-Old Makes $100K Off Osama's Death

5/6/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Osama bin Laden's body was barely in American custody -- and one savvy New York kid was already making t-shirts to commemorate the bastard's death ... pulling in over $100,000 in less than 2 days.

23-year old Maurice Harary tells TMZ, he made a beeline to his NY apartment as soon as he heard the news of Osama's death -- and started building a website to sell his "OBL is dead" t-shirts.

Maurice claims the site went live at 3:30 am on Monday -- and by Tuesday evening, he had already sold around 10,000 units at 12 bucks a pop ... meaning dude raked in approximately 120k in less than two days.

Yes, we know ... you had the idea first. Stop whining.

This is a perfect example of the difference between Republicans and democrats. You will notice that the comments from Republicans are something like "Good for you", or " I wish I would have thought of that. The democrat comments are " He should give that money to charity" or "hard working people are not making that much money" or to call him names. democrats believe that if you make money or are successful that you should provide for the less fortunate or stupid whether you want to or not. A rising tide lifts all boats huh. Just because your an idiot it does not mean that everybody in this world owes you something. Get a job!
