The death of Osama bin Laden is all the rage right now – in mainstream news, on social media, even on Craigslist.
In fact, here’s a particularly funny solicitation that we discovered on the infamous online marketplace.
From the Columbia, S.C. Craigslist page:
African American male needed for imaginary Navy Seal Team established to reenact the infiltration and execution of Osama Bin Laden. Must be in good physical condition with a basic knowledge of assault weapons, incendiary devices, grapple hooks, smoke bombs, nylon rope, night vision goggles, and hand-to-hand combat; amongst other skills and gear specific to Navy Seals. Must be willing to respond to “Tank” or “Thunder,” and make the occasional comment like “that must be be jelly, because jam sure don’t shake like that,” and “get my black ass outta here. Momma didn’t raise no fool!” The occasional story about growing up “on the mean streets” or “in the ghetto” is encouraged, but not required.
No word yet on whether U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham is going to take responsibility for the ad or not.
