Josh Hoge (@JoshHoge): I wonder if someone actually killed bin Laden or if that Kim Kardashian song just made its way to his iTunes?

Yasmin (@itsYasmin): Hey America, pics or it didn’t happen. #osamabinladen
I refuse to believe the Government didn’t know where he was for 10 YEARS?!
He’s probably been jamming in the mountains recording his album. Imagine dropping an album after this hype? No. 1 for sure.

Katy Perry (@katyperry): AMERICA FU** YEAH, HERE TO SAVE THE MOTHER FU**IN DAY YEAH! #necessaryusageoftheFbombday
…Does anyone else find it strange that this is announced on May Day… I am relieved in some ways, but have a feeling of uncertainty now.
