Osama bin Laden Live Tweeting From Hell (Sorta) -- Which Could be Funny, but it's Not
As the U.S. government weighs whether to release photos of Osama bin Laden's bullet-riddled corpse to appease conspiracy theorists doubting his death is legit, the now-former public enemy number one is having a great time in hell -- at least that's what an uber-lame Twitter account celebrating his killing would have you believe.
Like the Cobra that escaped from the Bronx Zoo earlier this year, dead Bin Laden is "tweeting" up a storm after getting shot in the face by U.S. special forces (insert Team America "fuck yeah" here). But despite that the whole charade is intended to be a joke, none of the "tweets" are all that funny -- we didn't ROTFL, ROTFLOAO, or even LOL.
For example: "Al Capone just took 10% of my hell cash, WTF, that is a mean dude," @GhostOsama tweeted yesterday.
Then there's "busy with Hitler, Napoleon and friends plotting attack on Satan, Any special request from hell?"
@GhostOsama already has more than 40,000 followers just two days after live Osama met the business end of a Navy SEAL's rifle.
Of the dozens (yes, dozens) of tweets GhostObama has posted since the news of Bin Laden's death broke, only one has summoned even a chuckle.
"This sux, I have no more virgins! Thanks Wilt Chamberlin. Note to self: no more drinks with Jeffry Dahmer. Cant remember shit and my ass hurts."
