Osama and the Royal Wedding

It's been a weird week for news what with the Royal Wedding (technically last week, I know) and the killing of Osama bin Laden. Got me to wondering. . .

What do these events have in common?

1. Everyone wants to see pictures.
2. They made the world a happier place.
3. The central figure in each event was wearing a white dress (so I'm told).
4. Shares in retailers like Flags 'R' Us sky-rocketed.
5. No more virgins for one guy, plenty for the other (so I'm told).
6. Shoes. Crazy ones for Posh Spice, concrete ones for Osama.

It's a little odd to see some of the celebrations, to be honest. Bad, nasty dude for sure and not one person on the planet should shed a tear, but to see a young college kid on TV saying "It makes me proud to be a Texan"? What's that got to do with it?

Cheeky bugger was probably trying to co-opt this for his own dastardly ends.

Big day in history, though. Which is why I had to add my two cents.


  1. Excellent! Concise and well stated! If only the posters on my local newspaper and Facebook could be as realistic and brief as you have been!

  2. Something to smile about. Thanks!
