The Royal Wedding Killed Osama bin Laden

By Manolo the Shoeblogger
Noted Metrosexual Killed by Royal Wedding

Metrosexul Anglophile

Yes, the Manolo said it: the Royal Wedding Killed Osama bin Laden!

As the Manolo pointed out nearly four years ago, the Osama bin Laden was the metrosexual who dyed his beard and paid overly fastidious attention to his grooming.

And, it is the well known fact that the Osama bin Laden wished to live in England, and was the supporter of the Arsenal football club, which is the favorite club of both the Queen Elizabeth and the Prince Harry.

We are also informed, that the luxurious home in which the terrorist stayed (under the very nose of the Pakistani military) was not equipped with either the phone connection or the internet.

And so the Manolo asks you, what metrosexual Anglophile would miss the Royal Wedding?

“Ahmad, call Comcast to have the cable hooked up. By the Beard of the Prophet I shall not miss the nuptials of that infidel Prince William to the delicious Miss Middleton.”

“But, oh Leader of the Faithful, are not the enemies of righteousness everywhere with their spies, even unto the offices of the cable company?”

“Silence, dog! I shall have news of the Windsors!”

    And here I thought he was just a garden-variety terrorist. Thank you for opening my eyes, Manolo!

    While I assumed he had gone into apoplexy over Princess Beatrice’s hat …

    Manolo, this is the hit-out-of-the-ballpark posting. I just sent it via Facebook to some acquaintances of the conspiracy/doubter category with respect to yesterday’s developments, and the mood was lightened and the eyes were opened. At least a little.

    This was verily the public service announcement of the most noble sort. Many thanks for your insights during a complicated and emotional day.

    All the best,

    Great minds, Manolo — I was thinking the very same thing, although I hadn’t figured out how to express it so hilariously!

  9. Jennie Says:

    Anyone think that this operation may have been the reason the honeymoon was postponed? Insider info? Hmmmmm…..

  10. Jelly Says:

    Thank you, Manolo. That certainly lightened my day!

  11. Erik Nabler Says:

    Yes, at least he got to see the Royal Wedding.

  12. The Accidental Tangoiste Says:

    Oh, the Manolo! This really tickled me, amid the quite somber and complex emotions I’ve been experiencing over this event. Thank you! Abrazos!

  13. Paul Makiz Says:

    Haha too funny. Despite wanting to keep his compound internet free, Osama just couldn’t resist streaming the Royal Wedding on his laptop. And as soon as he connected to the internet, the CIA tracked him! It was nice knowing ya Bin Laden, R.I.P!
