You Say Osama, I Say Obama: One Letter Causes Mass-Media Confusion

with one comment

It’s just one letter.  An “S” makes it Osama (or Usama now it seems), while a “B” makes it Obama.  The two sound so similar anyone could, with a slip of the tongue, insert one for the other.  Put that together with the bombshell news of Osama (Usama) Bin Laden’s death with President Obama giving the order and you’ve got the perfect recipe for late night fun as shown by Jimmy Kimmel.

I feel for the poor news folks, having sat in their seats myself and not always having the chance to pre-read scripts flowing over the teleprompter.

Still some comic relief in all this craziness provides a short reprieve.
