Joe Armstrong Gets Minted (after sellout of Obama Mints)

Apparently, the Obama DisappointMints that offended state Rep.Joe Armstrong after he found them on sale at the UT bookstore, have sold out. And now there’s a Joe Armstrong “Strong Arm Censored Mint.”(Hat tip to Michael Silence)
The maker’s website indicates they were selling the original Obama DisappointMints for $5 a tin. UT Bookstore was charging $2.99.
So you might say the maker made a mint thanks to having the product taken off the UT market. Now maybe UT could offer the seized and unsold mints as collectors items – or a bonus to the purchaser of the unsold UT president’s home. Or something.
The new mint:
