Just back from a mysterious trip to the communist Hermit Kingdom, Dennis Rodman is testing the limits of capitalism by hawking T-shirts promoting himself as “Ambassador Rodman.”
“I come in peace, get your limited T-shirt now,” he tweeted, linking to a sales page with a cartoon image of Rodman standing in front of a world map.

By mid-afternoon Saturday, 58 people had forked over $24.99 for the tee, which will be on sale for a week.
The T-shirt site suggests customers will help the former “Celebrity Apprentice” contestant “save the world.”
But Rodman apparently couldn’t help the three Americans still imprisoned by his self-proclaimed “friend for life,” North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
A fourth prisoner, Otto Warmbier, was freed hours before Rodman landed in Pyongyang on Tuesday. Warmbier, who was in a coma, was flown to an Ohio hospital.
Rodman avoided answering questions about his trip when he landed in Beijing on Friday, and demurred when asked if he had met with his dictator pal.
