When you're out and about today, keep an eye out for Osama Bin Laden. Especially if you're in America, I think. For according to a news the US State Department has released pictures of what he might look like now, now that he's twelve years older than his famous picture. They've put them on their website. I thought he was supposed to be in Pakistan or Afghanistan, so you'd think they'd just distribute the pictures there. But no, they wanted the American public, who of course are never off the State Department website with all the interesting stuff they have on there (not really, probably) to see them, so they must want their people to keep an eye out, in case he's down the mall. Maybe they know something we don't?
So watch out, in case he's working in McDonalds, or something. Maybe you should boycott McDonalds, just to be on the safe side. After all, the picture of what he might look like now doesn't really look like him to me. I'd never have guessed it was him. It looks like some random middle-aged Arab taxi driver. That's a bit unfortunate for random middle-aged Arab taxi drivers. After all, if that's what he might look like, one that doesn't quite look like that might be him, surely? So be on the look out for any taxi drivers that are dragging two dialysis machines around, that's a dead giveaway.
One surprising change in the last twelve years, between what he looked like in 1998 and what the US State Department think he might look like now, is that he used to look quite jovial really, nice and smiley, but now he has a nasty look on his face. Even his eyes look totally different to me. His mouth, too, has a new nasty look. More intriguingly, the news says that the US State Department has done two pictures, with and without full beard, but the news, which is from the BBC, only shows the one without. What do they know that we don't? Do they know he's got rid of it? Or is he working at the BBC in some capacity, with beard, and they don't want to draw attention to him?
I don't watch much telly nowadays, but if you spot a mysterious bearded man on any BBC show, do let me know.
that's all from me for now
see you around
