  Fri. 5/6/11 8:07pm Danne D:

I expect lots of bacon references on this show today.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:08pm Danne D:

Gonna kick back and listen - you always deliver a great show
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:11pm ben drinken:

i knew t. within the first twenty seconds chris t would mention the bin laden thing. cool
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:16pm Danne D:

Those people who had no remains found from 9/11 didn't get returned to their home town to be buried.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:18pm ben laden:

i never ben drinken
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:20pm Current Caller...:

is a whack job.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:22pm ben drinken:

if every muslum was had be buried at sea given every muslim in the world. would make a stinky sea
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:22pm Alex in Astoria:

I'm reminded of what they did with Mussolini after he was executed...

"After being shot, kicked, and spat upon, [he was] hung upside down on meathooks from the roof of an Esso gas station... then stoned by civilians from below. This was done both to discourage any Fascists from continuing the fight and as an act of revenge for the hanging of many partisans in the same place by Axis authorities. The corpse of the deposed leader became subject to ridicule and abuse."

Sounds like a fine plan to me.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:24pm HΘRNΣT MΘNTANA:

A: Make a vinyl record of him for $6000, a service that a British company offers (as reported late last month).
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:25pm peter doubt:

hey hornet! screw you!
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:25pm Skull Bong:

  Fri. 5/6/11 8:26pm HΘRNΣT MΘNTANA:

Stool Pigeon arises for another screwing.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:26pm Joe in Costellostan:

I woulda turned him into a human flywheel and lit him up on the White House lawn come the 4th of July. Osama was born in hell btw.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:27pm Betting Man:

My guess is that no matter what was done with his body, some people (abroad and in the US) would have second-guessed what was done. 1. Some people love asserting their superiority by criticizing, duh. 2. Some people think they can create sympathy or get something by claiming a grievance, kind of like a grown-up version of spoiled kids.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:29pm peter doubt:

it was handled perfectly,stop the bullshit.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:30pm Danne D:

Pinata Bin Laden - filled with bacon.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:31pm Betting Man:

Osma Pin Yata
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:37pm Baying at the Moon:

OMG, refer this guy to "Coast to Coast AM"
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:38pm Ribcage Xylophone:

  Fri. 5/6/11 8:38pm cbk:

In my opinion, the whole concept for this show, shows poor form. Your better than this Chris.... ?
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:39pm HΘRNΣT MΘNTANA:

Alt A: When the new tower at Ground Zero is complete, push the corpse off it and have it land in a pool of man-eating white sharks that are wrapped in explosives that go off after they've eaten.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:40pm peter doubt:

yeah,put down the jerks chanting usa and proceed to have a show dedicated tothe same behavior.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:41pm Betting Man:

This topic is the Bat Signal for kooks.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:43pm Heinrich Himmler:

Lampshades and Soap.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:44pm Alex in Astoria:

So, one thought - does anyone know or care what happened to Saddam's corpse? No. Why? Because we watched him get marched to the noose and hung until dead. Granted, not the boogeyman that bin Laden was for all those years, but the point stands. We get one (bad) picture of a man with a bullet hole in the face, and a strangely less gray beard than the most recent images of him indicated he had. Was it bin Laden? Fine, let's assume so, but all we get is a static and suspicious image released to us. It's hardly the same sense of satisfaction or closure to the American public that we got with Hussein. I think that the disposing of the body in the drink may have had a logic to it, but like the internet says, "pictures or it didn't happen."
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:45pm jj:

what do you think of the Geronimo reference?
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:46pm peter doubt:

fuck the internet,you people will never be satisfied.keep exchanging your theorys til you die.whats the truth?you'll never want to hear it.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:47pm Death Pics:

Obama is in charge right now, and he gets to decide how it's handled for now. He thinks pics would be mean and counterproductive, and that's where he draws the line of what's appropriate and not.

History is long, and my guess would be that it's nearly inevitable that those photos will out down the line somewhere.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:48pm Mao Zedong:

Dim sum.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:48pm Joe in Costellostan:

Oh , he's dead all right. Turns out that Osama was waiting for a pizza delivery when he answered the door. @ peter doubt - relax dude, it's only entertainment.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:49pm Danne D:

Btw, to those wanting to see Death Pics b/c they think the asshole didn't die I say just show me a picture of him reading today's New York Times or something - problem solved.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:49pm Land Shark:

Candygram, Mr. Obama.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:49pm peter doubt:

no it's not.it has become the noise that blots out real discussion.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:51pm Ike:

Obama prob. did the right thing. What else could he do that wouldn't inflame extremists? Maybe he should show photos to a select few reporters though, after making sure they don't have any hidden cameras on them. But I love HΘrnΣt's "Alt A" suggestion @8:39. Very creative.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:51pm Media Cycle:

osama's death will be totally forgotten in another week. we'll be obsessed with whatever happens next, probably totally unrelated to osama.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:52pm jeff dahmer:

sexy fun time.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:53pm Danne D:

I disagree with that idea Ike - Poor Sharks :(
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:53pm Danne D:

Along that line:

Q: What do Osama's friends call him now?
A: Chum
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:53pm Marc in Liverpool:

He never existed.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:54pm Ike:

OK, *robotic* man-eating sharks wrapped in explosives.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:55pm Danne D:

Poor Robot Sharks :(
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:56pm P.T. Barnum:

Take his beard on tour!
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:56pm Danne D:

Like the explosives part though :)
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:57pm OBL:

I will return from hiding someday to help the world in its hour of need. XXXXX, Osama
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:57pm Danne D:

There ya go - Osama Hood Ornament
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:58pm Ike:

Hey, conspiracy theorists who don't believe he's dead: Al Qaeda themselves confirm it in their vow of revenge. Via the Guardian (UK):
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:58pm OBL:

That just proves the conspiracy, Ike. 8-)
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:59pm Danne D:

Maybe Al Qaida is in on the conspiracy, Ike...

Dang foiled by OBL
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:59pm Danne D:

G'night folks.
  Fri. 5/6/11 8:59pm The Thing with Two Heads:

Attach Usama's head to GWB.
  Fri. 5/6/11 9:00pm Marc in Liverpool:

be safe.
  Fri. 5/6/11 9:00pm OBL:

Inishallah, infidel dogs!
