The Bin Laden Of Washington Shaves His Beard After 10 Years

by | 4th, May 2011

TEN years ago, Washington’s Gary Weedle, now aged 50, made a pledge: he would not shave until Osama bin Laden was captured or killed.

The problem, of course, is that the longer you go without the razor, the more you look like Bin Laden. And he had a $27m bounty on his head. Blessedly, Weedle was neither lynched nor arrested. He lived.

Says the teacher from his home in East Wenatchee:

“I spent my first five minutes crying and then I couldn’t get it off fast enough.”

Only, what if the Al Qaeda leader isn’t dead, Weedle is bin Laden and it’s all a huge conspiracy..!?
