List of items on Osama bin Laden’s hard drive

Uncategorized / Misc

In an article on Politico.com titled “Osama bin Laden raid yields trove of computer data”, one official said, “Can you imagine what’s on Osama bin Laden’s hard drive?”

Wow, now there’s an opening for a parlor game!    (Or a top-10 list… David Letterman, are you reading this?)

Let’s see:

  • nude pictures of 72 virgins;
  • draft of a love letter to Jodi Foster asking if she was impressed by his 9/11 attack;
  • high scores in Minesweeper (top score: 0 — he was always LOOKING for the bombs so he could blow himself up);
  • email from a banker in Nigeria promising to help “Ben Laden” find lost millions;
  • 10 years’ worth of files updating Adobe Reader;
  • a list of “suicide bomber of the week”, with the top few names crossed off;
  • a crossword puzzle with all the answers filled in with “Ba-wah-hah-hah!”

Oliphant: Justice

Uncategorized / Misc

http://wpcomics.washingtonpost.com/client/wpc/po/2011/05/03/

Once again, Oliphant expresses the unexpressable.

P.S. If you are reading this years from now and don’t get it: Oliphant is referring to America’s killing of Osama bin Laden.
