Kansas City, MO - There's some clever word-play at play on the front of a new t-shirt being sold by Browne's Irish Market in Kansas City to celebrate the Chiefs and QB Patrick Mahomes.

In Gaelic, the old Irish language, the phrase "póg mo thóin" translates into 'kiss my a**'.  You pronounce it as "pogue ma' hone".

The new shirts at Browne's have the phrase "Pog Mahomes", which loosely means send Patrick Mahomes a kiss.

The play-on-words came from Eddie Delahunt, a KC local Irish balladeer .

Kerry Browne says business at her shop has been brisk.  And after the Chiefs win on Sunday, they'll have to order even more.
