Chupacabra Sandwich: Osama underwater = HOTY so far

It's making a pretty strong case, I'd say.

I didn't see the Ring ring ring one before. I had to call my wife and tell her that one.

I missed that one when it aired. That replaces the OBL Cocktail: Two shots and a splash of water as my new favorite topical joke.

That katy perry thread was an impressive tribute to boobs, in many ways. Vote is still for underwater osama.

This. Good thing the current pic naziism isn't being retroactively applied. This thread made a handy bookmark.

I loved the underwater headline too. I didn't read any of the threads so I don't know if anyone else came up with this. I thought of it too late to do any submitting or even commenting really.

Hearing Osama discussed on the radio after a conversation that included sharks prompted this thought... You may not realize this but, Osama underwent a transformation almost as remarkable as Ebenezer Scrooge. In just one night he went from hated terrorist to pretty good chum.

In my book, that's a definite frontrunner for the HOTY!

I could use a boob fairy. Not for my boobs of course.

Bin Laden headline rocked.

Woohoo... I got a HOTW!

And I was paying attention when this was posted two days ago!
