After numerous rounds of... "We don't even know if Osama is still alive"... Barack Obama is now telling everyone he will capture Osama Bin Laden when he takes office.

So, Osama himself decided to send Barack Obama a letter in his own handwriting, to let him know he was still in the game. Obama opened the letter and it contained a single line of coded message:

370H-SSV-0773H

Obama was baffled, so he e-mailed it to Howard Dean. Dean and the DNC and his aides had no clue either, so they sent it to Joe Biden . Joe Biden could not solve so it was sent to the FBI and the CIA .

Eventually they asked John McCain and his staff to look at it.

And within a few minutes McCain's Staff e-mailed Obama with this reply: "Tell Obama he's holding the message upside down."

I can't believe I clicked on this --- this is the dumbest, oldest joke. I didn't even need to finish reading it.

It was funny in grade 10 when I read it for the first time, now it's just a bit lame.

Now I can't believe it asked me for Word Verification twice, and posted both times.


By the way, Barack Obama promised many, many times, for a long time now, to capture Osama Bin Laden.

"cc-nonymous says... Hey where's my comment? It didn't get moderated, did it? I thought that didn't happen around here!"

yeah sure, cc... we've been over this thing... how many times?

as i said before... "I'm just a little tired of having the internet equivalent of obscene phone hangups constantly muddying up the comment threads."

but really, you little minx... you already knew that.
