Local6 (Orlando), Jan. 25, 2006

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.


A company representative said they have sold about 3,000 shirts in the first two weeks of offering the product.
