Poking the Scorpion

I was in an airport lounge L.A airport as Obama was telling America that Osama bin Laden was dead. It was quite powerful, the entire lounge was silent as they listened. Just as he finished an American middle aged woman wandered over and asked loudly, 'Osama bin Laden is dead? What did he die of? Old age?'

And I turned around and said, 'Nope. Lead poisoning.'

Do you get the feeling she wasn't listening?
That Obama came on TV and said "tonight the US launched an operation that made Osama Bin Laden very old."

HAH ! When you put it like that, yes!

Lead itself isn't too poisoning, it's just how fast you take it I think.
