It was announced today that the U.S. will hand over the beard of Osama Bin Laden to a yet to be named public museum in Afghanistan. Howard Smith said, "We feel it would be respectful to Osama's family and followers to at least leave them with a tangible memory."
The head of White House relations, Jim Stoward, revealed that this was a joint decision that was not easy to come to. "At first, we thought about putting Bin Laden's beard on Ebay with a 'Buy It Now' option in hopes to raise money for this top secret mission that is estimated to cost U.S. tax payers 30 million dollars.
Upon further thought into this matter, a special committee decided to donate the former terror leader's facial hair to a yet to be announced museum that plans to have it on display.
Mary Jenkins said, "It's likely that the museum will display Bin Laden's beard for the public to view and possibly allow to touch for a minimal fee of 50 cents. Some say that Bin Laden would of been less menacing without his trademark beard. His facial beard is estimated at being 2.5 feet long and weighing 13 ounces.
