The death of Osama bin Laden has already affected popular culture, just a week after the Navy SEALs sent the terrorist chieftain to the afterlife. A new free online video game and a couple of skits on "Saturday Night Live" have popped up.
The new video game allows the player to participate in the execution of bin Laden, according to News Blaze. The scenario is KumaWar Episode 107- Osama 2011 and is a first person shooter with the goal of finding bin Laden in his Pakistan compound and shooting him dead. As with most first-person shooters, there is always the possibility of the player getting shot instead, with the resistance experienced in the game likely far more challenging than that encountered by the Navy SEALs in real life.
A "video by Osama bin Laden" showed up on "Saturday Night Live," which was hosted by Tina Fey, and was purported to be the last will and testament of the terrorist chieftain. The bin Laden in the skit, played by Fred Armisen, requests that actress Dakota Fanning be one of his pall bearers, but only if she is still younger than 12 and still a virgin. Above all, bin Laden requests that he not be buried at sea, as he has a morbid fear of being fish food. He also apologizes for the paucity of his estate, but like a lot of other people, he lost out in the economic collapse of 2008.
The same "SNL" had another skit depicting the Little Mermaid and her friends being irate because they were bombarded by the shroud wrapped corpse of bin Laden. What are these humans thinking by using the oceans at their garbage dump? A fair point, but there are some problems with the skit.
First of all, the Little Mermaid is a Danish creation; her statue in bronze resides in Copenhagen Harbor. Thus her habitat, as it were, is likely the Baltic and North Seas, not the Arabian Sea, now renamed the "Martyr Sea" by Islamo Fascist fans of bin Laden.
Second of all, the fish friends, including the talking crab, should have been overjoyed by the introduction of bin Laden's corpse to their ocean. It's sort of like stumbling upon some free takeout, ready to eat.
