one week first milliseconds after the death of Osama Bin Laden, “Osama Is Dead” t-shirts flooded the internet and rickety tables outside sporting events alike, in some cases earning their creators literally hundreds of thousands of dollars.
To pay homage to this rare but wonderful marriage of two things I love — the fall of Bin Laden + irredeemably terrible Boardwalk shirts — we’ve compiled this list of the most genuinely patriotic, levelheaded, and inspiring shirtwork to come out of the Osama aftermath with this list of The 40 Classiest “Osama Is Dead” T-Shirts:
Wouldn’t this mean France technically killed Bin Laden?
This shirt will never age.
Might’ve been more convincing if I didn’t want to spoon Obama Squirrel forever.
Should he “rest” in Hell, or just like, be on fire there? Mixed messages.
That bottom picture is actually just stretched OJ from a leftover “Can The Juice” shirt.
Finally, a shirt that truly conveys the enormity of this accomplishment.
Press Your Luck Whammy has been waaaaaaiiiiiitinnnnnnnnggg….
They changed “Witch” to “Vicious Pig” then changed Osama into a witch? Poor communication between the “Phrase” and “Guy” Changing Departments (they’re on separate coasts).
Those Navy Seals are truly as heroic as a bowl of Stairway To Heaven-peno Poppers.
If Pakistan stands behind this dude in a roller coaster line, ZING!!!
More adorably than I would’ve put it, but, you know, diff’rent strokes.
They got this shirt made before the “human shield” story got disproven two days later. That’s called SERVICE.
Yeah!!! F that fish!!!! We’re supposed to be mad at that fish right?
PFFFFFT, Obama – always busy with his red circles.
One million terrorists, you mean, right? You do mean terrorists?
Oh you’re not out of the woods yet, DISCO.
Ahhh, I kept reading that as Navy “SEALS”, never saw the G.
I want a shirt that conveys my hatred of Osama as well as my love of precise nautical depths!
Surprise! But there IS an underground fireworld.
The two scenarios are downright identical.
Well done, P.T. Barnum!
Remember that song from forty years ago about shooting?
An excerpt from the Webdings Character Map.
Here’s some facts!
Nice to see the creator of Ziggy hasn’t lost a step.
That raid is all the more impressive when you consider the soldiers were shooting one-handed while carrying giant flags.
Wait wait I got another one: Osama Bin TIGERBLOOD.
PLEASE tell me this is a reference to that David Spade SNL sketch.
Personally, I blame Osama Bin Laden.
And another thing, these Chinese people?? Their names sound like throwing silverware down the stairs!
Knowledge… knowledge that the Indiana Jones movies were a thing was their shirt treasure…
Remember when this happened?
Whoa whoa whoa… I don’t know if the U.S. Navy Seals are quite as brave as those dudes on Syfy.
I can’t believe this was originally an Elizabeth Taylor shirt.
Classic line from The Goshdaddy.
Nothing more insulting to a dead terrorist than confusing the f*ck out of everyone.
Babies have no idea who Osama is or what his death means. They only know which college football teams they root for.
