Mediocre Fight of the Day: America vs Osama bin Laden

The Mediocre Fight

Wow, this is a day that I never really thought we’d see.  Not because I didn’t think we could catch Osama, but because I wasn’t even sure he was still alive.  But, as reported last night, Osama bin Laden is now officially dead, almost a decade after the attacks on 9/11.  Fittingly, I received word that he was dead while we were in the middle of watching “The Killing.”  Not surprisingly, Twitter was blowing up all last night with news and commentary about this historic event, such as this tweet from Paris Hilton: “Back in LA. Can’t wait to get home to my pets. I miss my babies.”  Truer words have never been spoken in less than 140 characters.  Thank you, Paris.

After years of political cartoons depicting bin Laden hanging out in squalid conditions in a dank cave, he’s killed in a mansion down the street from a police station.  *slaps forehead*  Hopefully this will at least bring some modicum of justice to those who lost friends and loved ones at the hands of this man.

We’d also like to recognize Joe Biden’s part in this effort, as he led the strike force and killed Osama with is bare hands.  What’s that?  Oh, it was a highly trained CIA strike force?  So Biden didn’t have anything to do with it at all?  … I guess that makes more sense.  Sorry.

Mediocre Fight of the Day: America vs Debt

The Mediocre Fight

Alright so I missed out on something patriotic for President’s day yesterday, but I’ll do an America mediocre fight today.  In fact, I’ll continue the rest of the week with a different country’s mediocre fight each day, so check back for France, Britain and Ireland later this week.

For starters we have America vs Debt.  I would love to see on our credit card statement how long it would take to pay off our debt if we made the minimum monthly payments.  China basically owns us right now.  If we were in a videogame they’d be nearing an economic victory.  At least when they eventually take over we’ll have some cool choreographed Superbowl halftime shows with some ninjas and shit.

As always, if you have a mediocre fight you’d like to see contact us any way your little heart desires.  Leave a comment here, tweet us @MediocreFight, find us on Facebook, shoot us an e-mail at The Mediocre Fight, or write it in big flaming letters on our lawns.  Although I’m not sure if any of us own lawns, so you might just need to write it in fire on a rooftop.

On second though, please don’t commit arson in our name.
