Shoomlakalaka, Pakistan (IP) - Reports trickling out of the back country in Pakistan indicate that Bin Ladin has been feeling the blues lately. One of the recent dilemmas he recently faced involved finding a suitable name for his latest video.

One idea he came up with was, "Terrorists Gone Wild" but that was rejected by his agent. Bin Ladin tried to use the argument that this name would insure that the video would end up next to "College Girls Gone Wild" in all of the 7-11's entertainment racks but his agent would not hear of it. Another name rejected outright was, "Here We Go Carrying Pictures of Chairman Mao".

Another idea was the name, "Repent Ye Infidels" but that was thought to be ineffective because Americans are already up to their ears in religious pamphlets and videos from Jehovah Witnesses, Mormons, Scientologists, and other whacko religious cults.

Finally he called for a brainstorming session to be held and they went through name after name after name and they finally realized that the best thing to do was call it the "Return of Laden". They would market it by actually paying people to take possession of it. They did the same thing on Ebay by insisting on sending buyers some money via paypal if the buyer would agree to use the "Buy it Now" feature to obtain the video at no charge. They just ended up with a bunch of negative feedback for all of their effort.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
