Is it me or is the voice of Osama the same as the voice of Stewie? How apropos!

I just watched the Family Guy OBL cartoon a few minutes ago. Absolutely hilarious. Call the HRC!

Speaking of the FCC, I have always liked the Jimmy Kimmel feature called "This Week In Unnecessary Censorship". It's a bit played out now, but a brilliant concept. See some highlights here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qc6w4SzIUN0
