Osama Bin Laden is dead.
It was announced today. He died like a week ago or something but it was announced today. People rejoiced in America. It was the talk of facebook.
Barack Obama made a speech. We watched it in the office on my laptop. It was an amazing moment, millions upon millions of people all over the world were hearing the same words at the same time, as they were spoken by Obama. This was history.
But a much greater moment in history happened today. It happened on my drive home. I was listening to Triple J and there were experts discussing what all this means. People were calling in, giving opinions on the matter, suggesting that perhaps this will mean more terrorism, that perhaps this event is not so great... And then it happened. A genius and profound thought broadcast for our nation to hear and reflect upon:
"Yeah, I saw Obama's birth certificate and his middle name is Hussein...." said the caller innerer.
"Umm, ok," responded the Triple J presenter after a few seconds of awkward silence. "And what has that got to do with anything?"
The caller innerer had an answer for that. And my lord it was a good one. One that will change the way we view all of this, the events of September 11, the war on terror, the killing of the world's most famous terrorist...
"Obama rhymes with Osama."
