Osama bin Laden is happy in his cave, according to a talking flukeworm named Abu Mohamed al-Ablaj:

"Bin Laden is leading it from a cave, the same cave from where the orders went out to destroy the citadel of the Pentagon and which the Pentagon has not been able to destroy," he said.

"Abu Abdullah [Bin Laden] enjoys full freedom of movement. He directs the fighting against the evil administration in Satan's Black House from his cave.

"He swears to die fighting for God. Like any mujahedeen, he cannot imagine dying in his bed.

"His sudden reappearances are a war in themselves, it's a blow struck at the head of the American media cobra."

Satan’s Black House? American media cobra? Cool! Let’s answer Abu’s abuse with parody George W. Bush from the latest Viz magazine (no link):

Speaking from the bunker eight miles below the earth’s outer crust from which he intends not to emerge until Judgment Day, he said: “I will avenge these prankdoers, mark my lips, I will smoke these filthy evilsters.

“Whoever you are, we will catch you,” added mad Mr Bush. “Remember: I never sleep.”

“Smoke these filthy evilsters”. Hmmm ... that could catch on.

American media cobra- is this an esoteric allegory, using the hooded cobra to the Ku Klux Klan dominated media in the US? I think I could get a gig on Indymedia.

I must question "Satan's Black House"; "South Park" showed a lovely terrace decorated in true provence style, thanks to Satan's artistic partner; black is SOOO Berlin pre-wall.

I have to say that I find Bin Laden has superior verbal fire power to Bush.
GWB is usually at his best when he mis-speaks.
Don't misunderestimate him.

Jack, "Bushisms" are sooooo 2001, you know?

But look what I dug up in 10 seconds at

"- Jason Soon, 2:49 PM
Criminals and 'criminals'

Ignired? IGNIRED?

Now THAT'S a cutting edge...

Who is this shitbag al-Abloj, and why is his head still connected to his body?

Hey Habib,

In this case it isn't an allegory, but straight-out literal: The American Media has a vintage Shelby Cobra that it has restored, a dual four barrel 427 side oiler. The American Media has a sweet car, but they won't let Arabs ride it and that makes Osama mad.

Osama bin Laden is not so happy in his cave.

"Those were the days"

All the kafir we have slayed,
Mujahedeen were Saudi paid,
Guys like us we had it made,
Those were the days.

And you know what was haraam,
Girls were girls and men were men,
Mister we could use a man
like Mullah Omar again.

America we loved to hate,
Infidels deserved their fate,
Gee I think jihad was great,
Those were the days.

Penny drops: Osama and co in caves weilding clubs uttering the primal beginings of language , Ugh Ug.
Folks, an ancient history programme gone wildly wrong. The producer hired no actor, some one sent him the real McCoys.

Apparently there was a translation error - the messsage should have been "from his GRAVE"
