I’ve been through Oh Word‘s Osama bin Laden joint three or four times now and I’m still counting the number of levels it works on: so far I’ve been offended, entertained, and inspired. I’ve also learned a couple things, one of which is that Photoshopping sunglasses on ObL is an easy way to get me to ROFL. I wish people were sending it around as much as the Onion‘s Pitchfork thing, but the Osama joke is way more subtle and troubling, two qualities that don’t usually get you far in the meme race.

Is hip-hop suffering from 9/11 amnesia, or does getting wrapped up in Curtis vs. Graduation fever show them terr’ists that they don’t have any power over us?
