    End the competition right here, folks, this tops "he took it in the butt."

    Pretty good. The Mets beating the Astros is what puts it over the top.

    BTW, I'm not buying that they didn't have cable/satellite tv.

    One of the clips they showed had him watching Claire McCaskill presiding over the Senate on C-Span.

    Someone taped that for him and brought it to him? That's pure channel surfing.

    And, this picture clearly shows a satellite dish:

    Actually, "Debbie Does Abbottabod" on the TV screen is a nice touch as well ...

    Had no internet or phone lines connected.

    Don't remember reading anything about him not having satellite TV. And you can still have a satellite sitting in your yard but not have it connected. Or maybe nobody actually knows what he was connected to.

    I'm wondering who at CIA gets to review the entirety of the porn stash to make sure there are no secret encoded messages.

    YF, don't recall it ever being said that he didn't have TV service. Chalk up the TV-less rumor to shoddy reporting.

    Before I clicked on this I thought, it can't be better than "He Took It In The Butt"

    I was wrong.

    I think the CIA should release to porn to verify that story is not made up in effort to spoil the Osama legacy.

    Indeed. Any amateur could've come up with Osama bin Wankin'. It's the tv screen and the Whora Bora subhed that make this a master(burtory) piece.

    If you're looking at those two options on a news stand, the Post wins easily. I don't live in New York anymore, but I feel like the Post has really moved well past the Daily News these days.
