Debbie Does Abbottabad: Bin Laden Had A Porn Stash

What would you do if you were squirreled away at a secret compound for years on end with no hope of leaving and living a normal life? If your answer is watch a shit-ton of porn, you and Osama bin Laden have more in common then you probably thought. Reuters is reporting that soldiers who raided bin Laden’s compound found a “fairly extensive” trove of modern porn. Sadly, no specifics were given–although that hasn’t stopped some reporters from speculating on OBL’s preferences.

Guess this disproves Howard Stern‘s notion that peace in the Middle East is as simple as combating their sexual repression with boatloads of porn. OBL was locked up with a couple of wives and a whole lot of porn. He has about 18 kids. Something tells us sexual repression wasn’t his problem.

OBL’s porn locker does prove one thing, however: Hollywood and its influence may have a mixed perception globally, but the San Fernando Valley is loved the world around.
