Osama Bin Laden, who was shot and killed in his Pakistan compound on May 1st, was buried at sea by U.S. Forces. This was done in accordance with Moslem tradition that burial take place within 24 hours. Bin Laden was killed by a bullet to the head in a fire fight with Special Forces troops.
One of the soldiers said that Obama's "burial at sea" took a very large toilet. Private Luke Johnson remembered that "when one of our goldfish died when we were kids, our parents would put it into the toilet and then flush it down. They told us that our little pet had now been buried at sea."
"We decided that flushing Osama Bin Laden for a similar burial at sea was the best and most honorable and fitting type of funeral for him. We even added a few contributions of our own to give the toilet more liquid to assist in the flushing."
There is no indication that the Tidy Bowl Man removed his hat or paid silent tribute as Osama passed him on the way through the sewers.
