Anything sells, if your business idea is one of a kind. And this is unexpectedly becoming increasingly evident just after US Vice-Presidential Debate. Democratic vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris' snub to US Vice President Mike Pence during the debate is quickly becoming a buzzword online and people are already selling mugs and T-shirts.

"Mr Vice President I am speaking. I am speaking," was Kamala Harris' warning for Mike Pence to stop interrupting her. Such was the force in her words and her gaze that Pence promptly stopped talking.

"When you look at more than 210,000 dead bodies in our country, American lives that have been lost, families that have been grieving that loss. And you know, the Vice-President is the head of the task force," she added.
