Osama News.

As you more than likely already know Osama Bin Laden was been pronounced dead yesterday. After searching for him for nearly 10 years, the US was finally able to pin point his whereabouts and put the chase to rest. It is a great defeat for America, and I am so happy and proud to be an American. My thank you goes out to every man and woman serving in the military, thank you.

I did turn on the news and watch everything go down live, but it was far more entertaining to see what everyone was posting via internet (Facebook, Twitter). Here are some of the post I saw that gave me a chuckle. I know this is a serious, historical moment in the world, but these post did lighten the mood a bit:

“The longest game of hide and go seek just ended.”

“Knock Knock. Who’s there? Not Bin Laden.”

“So how long before they make a movie outta this?”

“One day my news feed is blowin up with pictures of a double rainbow, now Bin Laden’s death. You can always count on facebook to update you on the finest things in life.”

“The awkward thing about Osama is that nobody is telling you that Dora The Explorer was the one who finally found him…”

“Osama Bin Laden will join Anne Frank and Waldo as the only members of the Hide and Seek Hall Of Fame.”

“Obama is dead!”

“(614): We just shotgunned beers for America”

“I need an American flag T shirt to wear tomorrow. The jorts might also come out”

“America proves yet again that missiles attached to unmanned aircraft guided by satellites and controlled by people a thousand miles away > dudes with AK-47s in caves”

“If Obama is 55 minutes late in addressing the entire nation, can I be 55 minutes late to my class tomorrow?”

“Somethings wrong, I hold my head, Osama gone, that nigga dead *Kanye West voice*”

“Someone got that 5 kill streak”

“Osama’s dead? Shot timeeee”

“May 1, the newest holiday?”

“Things on TV right now: Army Wives, Major Payne, Ax Men, Bad Boys, and Top Gun. You couldn’t plan a more American night if you tried.”

“Just say it Barack. ‘America, fuck yeah.'”

Thank You Martin Luther King Jr.


“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
– Martin Luther King Jr.

Where would the world be today without this man? Would we still be in the dark, still as prejudice as we were then? He lost his life fighting for equal rights. All of his hard work, struggles, and words payed off. If only he were still here among us today to see the progress made, all because of him.

Remember: It only takes one person, just one, to stand up and make a difference.

“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”
-Martin Luther King Jr.
