Osama Bin in Kansas this whole time?

Last night, CNN reported that Osama Bin Laden was killed. 
Later, a reporter sent me a link to a Fox news channel claiming "Obama Bin Laden Dead"  Hmmm. 

So, for about 5 minutes, I watched my fellow Americans cheer and jeer and wave flags with painted faces. As though it was a college football game, they chanted "U.S.A.!" and raised their #1 finger in the air. 

...did we win something? Is life a game? Why am I still watching this?

I changed the channel to watch Celebrity Apprentice. Because even the Trump trumps that shit. 

In talking about it today, I realized how it all reminded me of a "ding, dong, the witch is dead" sequence. So I looked this up. 

I always really liked her socks. 

This movie scared me as a kid. It was dark and eerie. A movie where even when the characters are happy, you know something bad is about to happen. You know that they should just stop celebrating because it's not helping; they've lost focus.

  1. As long as you remember this is not an Obama victory, but a USA victory, you will be fine.

    When are we moving to our farm, again?

  2. Couldn't agree with you more. I didn't even write anything about it on my rambling of a blog... why? Because I forgot it even happened...that's how much I care. Does that make me a bad citizen?
