How does your Osama stay so young looking?

Great minds do indeed think alike, and thanks to The Antagonist for saving me the bother of having to do my own version of this (I've been thinking about doing one all day)...




This, of course, is not the first OBL celebrity product endorsement. As early as 2001 Osama was extolling the virtues of Weight Gain 4000 - a revolutionary new diet supplement that enabled him to put on 100 pounds, change skin colour and nose-shape before recording his all-important 'Confessions of a 9/11 Supervillain' video...


(And whilst on the subject of OBL and 9/11 I've just had a quick peek at the FBI Most Wanted page and it still doesn't mention that OBL is wanted in connection with 9/11. Hmm, molto curioso...)


and remember, everything posted on the Internet is bollocks, except for shonky old videos of dead or fictitious Blofeld-style terrorist masterminds hosted on Virginia-based urls which are always 100% True



cf.
Al Qaeda to Rebrand as 'Scimitar 3000'



"Scimitar 3000 is clean and stylish with a high recognition factor. It focus-grouped incredibly well in Peshawar"

Charlie Chaplin used to enter "Charlie Chaplin look-a-like competions" as an anonymous punter. The best he ever did was to come third.

Agree with Elmer.
Needless to say, I half inched the illustration.

Osama's dead, so he really IS looking remarkably good!

'All references to current events, such as the 62nd anniversary of the U.S. atomic bombing of Japan, and Sarkozy and Brown being the leaders of France and the UK, respectively, occur when the video is frozen! The words spoken when the video is in motion contain no references to contemporary events and could have been (and likely were) made before the U.S. invasion of Iraq.'

Beautiful work, I don't think.

The FBI most wanted terrorists lists
Bin Laden as left-handed. Yet in the videos I've seen, including the latest one, his right hand is always the more dominant.
