That had to be a pretty awkward passing-the-torch ceremony, right? “Thanks, guys. Thanks a lot. I’ll remember this moment for the rest of my life. Mostly because it’s going to last about 3 months now. Thanks a million, assholes."
Sure, maybe this dude would have wanted to take bin Laden’s spot at the top. But quietly, right? Not in a way that makes you the easiest person in the world to hate, other than these three guys. Not in a way that makes you searched for more than the love-child of Waldo and Carmen Sandiego.
In hockey, when someone is named the team leader, they get the letter “C” sewn onto the front of their uniform, like in this picture. Al Qaeda has a similar tradition, except instead of the letter C, they just use this.
I’m not hating on being named Al Qaeda’s new leader, I’m just saying I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re giving the “honor” to someone else again before long. Not hating, just saying.
