So Apparently Osama Bin Laden Is Dead?

Dethroned at last. Who will be the next champion?


FINALLY, something to stop news channels rambling on about the Royal Sodding Wedding...

In the last 24 hours, president Barack Obama announced that a team of American soldiers (apparently it's very important to note that the whole team were American...) found Osama Bin Laden's hiding place in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The 10-year round of Hide And Seek is over, but unfortunately Bin Laden has decided that the gun-ho Americans cheated by killing him, so he's not playing any more. Sore loser...

Now that everyone knows about his death, there are immediate fears of revenge attacks - it seems that Al Qaeda take Hide and Seek very seriously - after the chief terrorist was shot in the head and promptly buried at sea. Apparently, the US helicopter broke down, so he was carried away on foot. Meanwhile, riotous celebrations have swept the western world, particularly at Ground Zero, where the twin towers used to be. Like many, I wouldn't mind running Bin Laden's body through a Bacon Slicer, and I hope his corpse is uncovered by bottom-feeders in the sea and ripped apart by sharks. Well, there is enough blood on his hands to attract them...

Sure it may not end the war on terror all on its own, but it's still satisfying as someone who isn't in favour of randomly killing hundreds of innocent people just for having a different religion for me to say in honesty "Bin Laden is Dead".

Because this is technically a car blog, I leave you with Jackie Stewart powersliding away from an explosion. Why this of all images? BECAUSE RACECAR, and there need be no further explanation than that!

Perhaps the most awesome racing car picture on The Internet
Muscle Car Monday to follow. Hopefully...
