Frivolity Break: Abbottabad! President Obama and the Muppets
Okay, so calling this a Frivolity Break might stretch the meaning of the term. After all, this clip is based on the premise that President Barack Obama ordered the elimination of Osama bin Laden. Yes, the Obama/Osama thing is a very strange coincidence, and for the most part people should get a pass when they tongue-trip over the names. But the town in which
Obama Osama was killed was called "Abbottabad," and sounds very much like a nonsense word. Kind of like Mahna Mahna, a catchy 60s tune adapted by the Muppets in the 70s. So a YouTube video mashup was inevitable.
