As you all know, President Barack Obama announced last night that a U.S. agent has killed Osama Bin Laden.
While some people were out celebrating in the streets, stand-up comedians were coming up with the perfect tweet. Here are our favorites from the night:
@NateBargatze: It is pretty awkward in my cab right now.
@DaneCook: BIN LADEN KILLED 3519 DAYS AFTER 9/11! I WON! I GUESSED 3519 EXACTLY!
@AmySchumer: This is the best death since my grandma.
@SklarBrothers: Osama Bin Laden is dead. But, like Tupac, I’m guessing he’s got a few more tapes to release.
@DanSoder: Turns out he died in a mansion in Pakistan. So he went out like the Scarface of the Middle East.
@kbeninato: So apparently the Navy Seals got Osama Bin Laden while his compound was distracted by something. #OperationRoyalWedding
@birbigs: I’m not saying Fox News is downplaying this but Greta Van Susteren is playing rock, paper, scissors with Neil Cavuto.
@DonaldGlover: Best part of twitter when things like this happen are people who don’t know it happened yet and tweet “so crazy at the club right now!”shit.
@PattonOswalt: No matter how collected Obama is during his speech, he’s hearing LL Cool J’s “Mama Said Knock You Out” blasting in his head.
But the MVP of the evening was clearly @TedAlexandro.
-Bin Laden’s body is in U.S. custody. Why not call Jeff Dunham and have some fun with this?
-Just goes to show, if you fuck with the U.S.A. we will find you and kill you within approximately ten years time.
-It would have been pimp if Obama produced his birth certificate and Bin Laden’s death certificate on the same day. “Here ya go, bitches!!!”
And my favorite: “Biggest shocker? Bin Laden: organ donor.”
Keep an eye out for more Osama jokes as I am sure it will be Trending for the rest of the week. But for some people, life will go on as usual. Just look at @ParisHilton at 12:45 am after the announcement: “Back in LA. Can’t wait to get home to my pets. I miss my babies.”
