Osama bin Laden is Dead is about growing up in a sad, little town in the middle
of nowhere. It’s about going to high school with a bunch of rich kids who hate
you because you buy your clothes at Wal-mart. It’s about your parents
manipulating you into enrolling in a creepy Christian college where morons go
to be brainwashed. It’s about dating a girl who won’t put out.
Osama bin Laden is Dead is about Mark, a high school senior who can’t imagine
how his life could ever stop being pathetic. Mark is neither happy nor well
adjusted. He likes to pretend that Osama bin Laden is some kind of anti-Christ
superhero who can save him from the bleak hellscape that his life has become.
Osama bin Laden is Dead is about all of Western civilization crumbling and
collapsing on top of you. It’s about war and terrorism and making out with your
best friend’s girlfriend on a sticky couch in her basement. It’s about finding a
new way to live.
