A PLEA FOR PIXX  10:47 am May 3, 2011

Obama, Release the Photos of Bin Laden’s Corpse. Sincerely, the Internet

by Jack Stuef

Casper the friendly ghost's unattractive friend.Last night on Glenn Beck’s sickly teevee show, the profitable conspiracy theorist host made a simple plea: for the government to release its photos of Osama bin Laden’s corpse. Glenn would like to see it. And his argument was that the photos can’t be all that gruesome, because most Americans have seen The Godfather and children play violent video games. In fact, Glenn “worked all day” on this goofy little cartoon of bin Laden’s shot-up head. And guess what? Beck is right. Not for the reasons he mentions, and certainly not for that dumb drawing, which makes bin Laden actually look cute. The reason President Obama should release the photos is because they will be more gruesome than movies or video games. And it is only fitting the photos live forever here on the most horrifying place in all the world: the Internet.

The problem with movies and video games, some people say, is that they give people a lust for violence. But the actual problem is they give people a lust for violence that isn’t real. Does your child think it’s cool to shoot somebody’s head off? Take them the Internet. Show them a photo of a real human being who was shot in the head. That kid won’t think it’s so cool anymore.

The news media can have their protracted debates about whether it’s suitable for them to air the photos if they are released, but it won’t matter, because they will exist on the Internet, the most suitable place of all. The Internet needs these photos so badly it has already made fakes. It needs them not just out of morbid curiosity, but to conclude another chapter of the Internet: the videos of office workers, people’s family members, jumping out of the World Trade Center in terror, and the videos of U.S. citizens being decapitated by terrorists and insurgents in the Middle East. Without the gruesome image of a dead bin Laden, there is no true justice to answer these crimes that will continue to float forever on the Internet.

Yes, these photos will end up on the back of the XXXL t-shirt of a man standing in front of children in a Walmart checkout line. But children should probably see a real dead body, one that’s not caked with makeup in a casket, at some point in their upbringing. Death is a part of life. And, in modern times, so is American justice and the country’s war machine.

Glenn just wants new fap material.

Eve8Apples May 3, 2011 at 11:10 am

Agreed. He keeps showing his penis pictures of Palin, but they just don't do the trick anymore.

Barb May 3, 2011 at 10:51 am

This kind of behavior is all fun and games until someone loses an eye. Wait, that didn't sound right.
I have no need to see the photos. I am sure many will want to see the martyr tape. That should be enough for them. If they release that and Bin Laden is still alive he will just make another tape, holding the daily paper to show that it is correctly dated. I don't want to hear his voice or see his image ever again.

Maman May 3, 2011 at 10:54 am

"Til someone loses an eye"? Are you really my mother writing under an assumed name? EXCELLENT!

Barb May 3, 2011 at 10:55 am

No, I am not your mother. Finish your oatmeal and make sure you bring me the laundry before you go to work. No running with scissors today!

BaldarTFlagass May 3, 2011 at 10:58 am

As soon as I left home I went out and bought me a Red Ryder BB Gun, because my mom would not allow me to have one when I lived at home. I can't remember why not.

I'm thinking that they'll be a guy selling a shirt at the top of the escalator at Metro Center with Bin Laden's shot-up face and that quote underneath about 24 hours after the picture is released. I'm surprised there isn't a faked-up one right now.

finallyhappy May 3, 2011 at 11:38 am

The deathers who have posted here as well as a nut I just saw on Tv say photos will not satisfy them.. However, if Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin( who thanked Bush for the death of OBL) personally can remove DNa fro mthe body and perform the tests themselves, that will work for teabaggers.. The deathers will not accept the DNa tests no matter who does them- because they will then claim that whomever they said should do them were bought off or the DNA was from an earlier time, ad nutieum

HuddledMass May 3, 2011 at 2:36 pm

"ad nutieum " – *smirk* – I'm in yr post, stealing yr meme

tessiee May 4, 2011 at 12:57 pm

Also because DNA is science, which is anti-Bible and also a fake conspiracy by Al Gore to make $$$ for Big Environment.

memzilla May 3, 2011 at 10:52 am

Yes, we all know that the Breitard faction is always placated by the release of evidence. Except the evidence of their own douchefappery.

all this blood-lust from the reich-wing — jeez you'd think they were about as violent & insane as the Muslins they're always bitching about. what next, Glenn & Rush & Ann & Malkin ululating and dancing around?

Let's face it – these idiots won't be happy until we have pics of Osama's corpse covered in pig carcasses with a piss-stained Koran on top….

(insert Penn Gillette's fake MLK Jr "enemy death" quote here ;-)

GOPCrusher May 3, 2011 at 12:49 pm

I say if we release the pics and videos of the death of Osama Bin Laden, then let's also release the rest of the pics from Abu Ghraib Prison.

The best way for kids to understand death is to take a long walk down a railroad to find a corpse and poke it with a stick.

Doktor Zoom May 3, 2011 at 11:15 am

I was going to reply with a movie quote, but then I found an online game in which your goal is to poke a dead body with a stick: http://www.funny-games.biz/floater.html

WhatTheHeck May 3, 2011 at 11:59 am

Or, take a walk along the Jersey Shores and explain why the dozen or so corpses there are missing knee caps, etc.

kittenbomb May 3, 2011 at 12:24 pm

Or just be forced to watch "Jersey Shore", really. Equally horrifying.

Having done so with lesser mammals I cannot recommend this highly enough, especially in keeping with today's 'splody theme here at our wonkette.

Yup, that's how we learned, oh wait, that was a movie. Seemed so real at the time.

deanbooth May 3, 2011 at 5:50 pm

Ever since I was a kid I've had a fear of finding a dead body. Sometimes I'm even afraid to click the "replies" link for fear of what it might reveal.

Maman May 3, 2011 at 10:53 am

POTUS is working on building up the new conspiracy theory about him… that this was all faked. Then wait until the Sunday before the election! Bam!

is it me or do the crazies seem even more crazy since OBL was killed? Is that possible? Can Beck be crazier, mathematically?

Yes. His dial goes to 11.

It's getting to the point where if Barry told these assholes the sun is a round orb, they would deny it.

Oh, but it isn't round, it bulges significantly at the equator. Like me!

To which Barry can respond, "Well, if you stare at it long enough you will see what I mean."

DashboardBuddha May 3, 2011 at 11:30 am

Just try telling them that the sun is a mass of incandescent gas, a gigantic nuclear furnace.

Lascauxcaveman May 3, 2011 at 12:08 pm

Already tried to tell them that. But did they listen? They just said, "You're not the boss of me."

kittenbomb May 3, 2011 at 12:30 pm

I know! And then they said "I know you are, but what am I?" It is impossible to argue with that logic.

Lascauxcaveman May 3, 2011 at 12:45 pm

Doktor Zoom May 3, 2011 at 2:17 pm

In point of fact, it's really a miasma of incandescent plasma.

Remember that they've already protested Michelle saying that it's good for kids to eat vegetables. That's only about half a step from denying the sun is an orb.

I hope they release the bin Laden photos the same day they release the photos of the girl Glenn murdered in the '90s.

No, Xs for eyes = drunk or unconscious, spirals for eyes = either crazy or really, really angry.

kissawookiee May 3, 2011 at 3:00 pm

Just make sure you don't end up with two Xes, because I'm pretty sure that means something bad.

Mort_Sinclair May 3, 2011 at 10:57 am

For Beck, the photos of Bin Laden are simply money in the bank, another way he can continue to milk the cretinous half-humans who hang on his every bespittled syllable. Just imagine how positively rapturous the undead will be as Beck "decodes" the shadows, colors, pixels, and 'shop evidence those photos are bound to offer.

freakishlywrong May 3, 2011 at 10:57 am

They all also *ooops!, manage to say "kill Obama" or Obama has been shot dead". *Ooops! Fuckers.

There is no place for pictures like this on the internet. The internet should only have pictures of celebrity tits. That is all.

Because DNA evidence is scientific and thus a completely unreliable means of establishing the identity of a dead person.

Native_of_SL_UT May 3, 2011 at 11:08 am

This reminds of when I was a kid. We had this goat that got half-castrated. He was meaner then hell (for good reason). My step dad decided it was time to put him down. So we went out to the pasture and the old man put a .22 cap in the goats head.
Pissed it right off. Funniest thing I ever saw was that shot goat chasing my asshole step dad around with him frantically trying to reload the single shot .22.

Terry May 3, 2011 at 11:37 am

Why half castrate a goat? To give him the bad temper possession of male gonads can provide, yet still allow him to shoot blanks?

Native_of_SL_UT May 3, 2011 at 11:46 am

To castrate a goat, you put a really strong rubber band around their testicles until they drop off.
The rubber band slipped.

(edit: Now I'm having fantasies about Glenn Beck with rubber bands)

Gleem_McShineys May 3, 2011 at 3:05 pm

My neighbor called the cops because some of her property had gotten broken into. She has some animals in a fenced enclosure, so she tried to warn the officers to stay away from the billy goats, because they could be mean and aggressive. The officer rolled his eyes like that was the stupidest thing he'd ever heard and told her, condescendingly, that he'd dealt with all kinds of stuff in his job, and proceeded to the backyard.
Neighbor: *shrug* OK, I tried.

Beck, Trump and the rest won't believe that he really died under Obama's administration until they see pictures of Bin Laden's corpse, the death certificate, results of the DNA test proving it's Bin Laden and polygraphs of the doctors who performed the autopsy and the DNA test.

Through the magic time-bending properties of that glorious patriotic daily activity that has sustained the GOP ever since Ronald Reagan (PBUH) made it mandatory in 1980: huffing mercury-coated paint-chips.

The Gipper single-handedly saved the Neocon Empyre when he introduced "Republican Oxygen" – by the late 70s Goldwater's traditional recipe of psilocybin steeped in heroin just wasn't getting the job done any more.

philpjfry May 3, 2011 at 11:15 am

Release the photos, They will be faked. Release the DNA evidence, bogus. Put his head on a pike, someone elses. If Al Queida admits he is dead, they are using the publicity of his death to give OBL a peacefull retirement somewhere. There is NOTHING we can do to prove to these assholes that a black president did ANYTHING worthwhile. No sense in trying.

You jest, but one way they teach it is that the light was created, in transit, 6000 years ago, similar to how God put all those fossils in the ground just to mess with us.

This then leads to Last Thursdayism, which is the belief that the entire universe was actually created last Thursday, with all of our memories, history, and what we believe to be the past created at that exact moment.

proof that Beck like that moroon in Pittsburgh, used a mirror to do that little drawing. A self portrait as OBL? an asshole wrapped in an enigma dipped in crazy.

I like how he's meeting with the victim's families.

J Rbt. Oppenheiner May 3, 2011 at 11:36 am

Give the photo (and copyright of the photo) to them, let them license it and do with the proceeds what they will.

undeterredbyreality May 3, 2011 at 11:23 am

I can't believe nobody's caught the fundamental error in Jack's column:
"Yes, these photos will end up on the back of the XXXL t-shirt of a man standing in front of children in a Walmart checkout line."

You can't see the back of a shirt on a person in a hoverround.

kissawookiee May 3, 2011 at 3:04 pm

You can, however, see the sides as they ooze around the edges of the seatback. Picture might be a little distorted from all the rolls, though.

Chet Kincaid May 3, 2011 at 11:24 am

Show the pictures to members of Congress and then put them away. No need to put them on the Internet.

jus_wonderin May 3, 2011 at 11:27 am

I agree!!

DashboardBuddha May 3, 2011 at 11:27 am

Agreed…and you snark blocked me with this fine comment. I was going to write a short screed about how America's children need to see more pictures of actual dead (ie shot to shit) people to better prepare them for when they participate in one of our (endless) wars.

El Pinche May 3, 2011 at 11:25 am

Obama should watermark the released photos :
"Barry Obama Pwned OBL 2011, bitches"

That'll cock block the gore-wanking wingtards.

GOPCrusher May 3, 2011 at 1:59 pm

Maybe some one will put it on I Can Haz Cheezeburger so we can make some humorous EPIC FAIL posters.

Warpde May 3, 2011 at 11:27 am

Don't let Beck fool you.
He's already seen the pic's.
How else could he draw such a remarkably accurate dead bin Laden.
God talks to him don't ya know.

cheetojeebus May 3, 2011 at 11:29 am

Drudge is sayin' the WH has decided to release the photos. So it must be true. or maybe it's not.. .http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-20059296-503544.html

DashboardBuddha May 3, 2011 at 11:40 am

I wouldn't trust drudge if he told me it was daytime and we were standing on a beach at high noon.

DashboardBuddha May 3, 2011 at 11:42 am

OT: I'm getting annoyed with Intense Debate, I think. As someone earlier pointed out, a bot is responsible for the downfistation. How can a trustworthy discussion program let this happen?

tribbzthesquidz May 3, 2011 at 12:00 pm

My biggest frustration is the user dashboard follow feed, whereupon I should be able to click on the comment link and go to that specific comment. It actually works until the thread gets crowded.

proudgrampa May 3, 2011 at 11:44 am

In my family, we have a tradition that, at funerals, we keep the casket closed: no viewing of the body. We believe that it's more important to remember the dead for what they were, not the shell that lies in the casket.

But in the case of bin Laden, it is probably more important to remove ANY doubt about his demise. Though it might inflame a few, showing pictures of his dead, sorry corpse is the right thing to do.

finallyhappy May 3, 2011 at 11:50 am

Show the picture but it will not end doubt among the deathers. However, conspiracy followers or haters or morons – nothing will do.

DaRooster May 3, 2011 at 11:47 am

He's a maroon… buffoon… baboon…. total loon…

Lascauxcaveman May 3, 2011 at 11:54 am

He's three chips short of a six-pack.

WhatTheHolyHeck May 3, 2011 at 12:02 pm

He's one fry short of a chandelier.

ablington May 3, 2011 at 12:18 pm

He's not playing with a full moon.

kittenbomb May 3, 2011 at 12:28 pm

The lights are on, but the carpet doesn't match the drapes.

owhatever May 3, 2011 at 12:17 pm

Beck believes SEAL Team 6 is part of the conspiracy.

smitallica May 3, 2011 at 12:20 pm

Predicted quote when the photos are released:

"It's a fake! Bin Laden's visible gray matter and splattered face has LAYERS! That shit was 'SHOPPED!!"

jus_wonderin May 3, 2011 at 12:24 pm

"While this photo apparently shows a bullet hole a few inches above Osama's eye, we can't confirm conclusively that this is indeed a bullet hole or if this is Osama. We now want the coordinates for the "burial at sea" so as to bring Osama to the surface and confirm with our own eyes. We cannot be sure that our President is telling us the truth."

Ya know, I hope if there is some "lying" going it is that they iced the body and have it at Area 51.

kittenbomb May 3, 2011 at 12:37 pm

I heard it is at Area 51. And Biggie and Tupac are guarding the body.

AJW@[redacted] May 3, 2011 at 1:53 pm

Hey, I live Area 51-adjacent. What did I ever do to deserve this?

tessiee May 4, 2011 at 1:48 pm

"We now want the coordinates for the "burial at sea" so as to bring Osama to the surface and confirm with our own eyes."

Somehow, that wouldn't satisfy them either.

kittenbomb May 3, 2011 at 12:33 pm

Well, curb his bloodlust or make him a psycho killer. Ehh…either way, you will have made your point.

CrankyLttlCamperette May 3, 2011 at 12:35 pm

They're not clever enough for a TARDIS.

KeepFnThatChicken May 3, 2011 at 12:41 pm

No. NO. NO. Fuck you, Glenn, and every last goddamn one of you. You want photos? Take diving lessons.

Slim_Pickins May 3, 2011 at 1:05 pm

Wasn't Beck supposed to be blind by now?

BZ1 May 3, 2011 at 1:08 pm

what is it about the conspiracy theorists, …never heard of Occam's razor?

DangerHelvetica May 3, 2011 at 1:12 pm

Occam was a member of the Illuminati.

mourningnmerica May 3, 2011 at 1:15 pm

Beck shouldn't say anything, because "…it was business…"

mourningnmerica May 3, 2011 at 1:20 pm

Oh, shit. They just released the Death Certificate. It says he died in Hawaii…

BTWBFDIMHO May 3, 2011 at 1:33 pm

Here's OBL dead! He actually looks like Jesus! http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=4e2_1304436213&amp

glamourdammerung May 3, 2011 at 1:33 pm

It really says something when you can not tell the difference between most of the comments from teabaggers and al Qaeda about Osama bin Laden's death.

lulzmonger May 3, 2011 at 9:44 pm

Hmm … hate-filled True Believers, led by rich venal cretins happy to screw them over, cheering for actions that will condemn them to epic levels of misery, despising liberal humanist secular culture even as they enjoy its manifold benefits, anti-science, anti-democracy, zero understanding of history, immune to logic, guided by superstition … nope, no similarity there AT ALL.

GOPCrusher May 3, 2011 at 1:52 pm

Steve King?

tessiee May 4, 2011 at 1:24 pm

Stephen King's kids: Maaaa, Daddy's making the walls drip blood again!
Stephen King's wife: Oh, for the love of… Honey, go hang out at the Emergency Room for a couple of hours, OK? You kids, go play outside while Mommy cleans this up. *mutters* I swear to God, I'm living in a crazy house…

Steverino247 May 3, 2011 at 2:02 pm

Take a little off the top…of my head.

DaRooster May 3, 2011 at 2:32 pm

He's a DICK!

fuflans May 3, 2011 at 4:14 pm

i do not want to see these pictures and it won't shut the nuts up anyway.

Naked_Bunny May 3, 2011 at 4:45 pm

Obama should just tell everyone that the photos are being held in Guantanimo and therefore cannot be released, ever.

gullywompr May 3, 2011 at 9:26 pm

Fuck The Godfather and video games, if you've seen Glenn Beck's show then photos of a dead Bin Laden will pale in gruesomeness.

Can't believe I'm the first one to write that. Not my best work, but it had to be said.

lulzmonger May 3, 2011 at 9:45 pm

In before "Play OBL Off, Keyboard Cat."

SonofSpermcube May 3, 2011 at 9:58 pm

TheMeatmaker May 4, 2011 at 1:01 am

Why is he showing Lincoln's reaction to Booth's big laugh line?

tessiee May 4, 2011 at 1:02 pm

Can we poke Rush with a sharp stick so he goes flying around the room backwards as the hot air escapes?

tessiee May 4, 2011 at 1:07 pm

Grrrr! Arrgggh!

tessiee May 4, 2011 at 1:38 pm

An obviously fake picture = they staged the whole thing; a really convincing picture = they put a lot of effort and resources into staging the whole thing.

mourningnmerica May 3, 2011 at 1:12 pm

He's mixing his metamorphosis.
