Woman Finds Seashell That Looks Like Osama Bin Laden In East Sussex
A woman in East Sussex has discovered a seashell that bears a striking resemblance to the infamous al-Qaeda terrorist Osama bin Laden.
Seriously, look at it. It really does as well.
OK, perhaps it ain't as remarkable as the face of Jesus appearing in a tattie scone (yes, that happened) but it's still definitely worthy of remark, right?
People find Jesus in things all the time, how often do they discover Osama bin Laden?
This miraculous find was made on Winchelsea Beach in the South of England by 60-year-old Debra Oliver.
She and her husband Martin, 62, were taking a lovely stroll on the beach as part of the celebrations for their 42nd wedding anniversary when they discovered the controversial Islamist leader's likeness on a shell.
During their walk, one particular shell caught her eye. Debra said that she was 'drawn to the curious looking' shell and went to pick it up.
After making the ridiculous find, Debra and Martin, who live in Brentford, 'fell apart laughing' and decided to keep the shell 'as a little memento'.
She added that finding a shell that specifically looks like Osama bin Laden is 'funny', pointing out: "He was buried at sea, too."
That he was, Debra. That he was.
She continued: "It's not that often you find a seashell that looks like anyone at all, so finding Osama bin Laden was amazing.
"We'd all gone for a walk on the beach, which is covered in millions and millions of shells and pebbles.
"I was drawn to this curious-looking shell, and went to pick it up. When I looked at it properly up close, I thought it looked like Jesus.
"I then saw a turban on the top, and realised who was staring up at me in the palm of my hand - Osama bin Laden."
Osama bin Laden was the jihadi organiser behind the terrorist group al-Qaeda. He is best known for his role in masterminding the hi-jacking attacks on America that took place on 11 September 2001.
Nearly 3,000 people were killed in those attacks and the USA then launched a retaliatory attack on Islamic fundamentalists in the Middle East.
Bin Laden evaded the clutches of the US armed forces for a decade until he was shot and killed at a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, on 2 May 2011.
As Debra rightly points out, following his death, bin Laden was buried at sea after being taken to Afghanistan for identification.
