Linking to a report about Osama bin Laden's latest audio message, the Drudge Report uses an upside-down image of the terrorist leader's face. In his infinite wit and wisdom, Matt Drudge is trying to tell us something. But what?

Five theories:

  • 1. Matt Drudge has subverted the principles of black magic to exorcize the demon of bin Laden from the world. explains the logic of upside-down symbology:
  • UPSIDE DOWN CROSS Symbolizes mockery and rejection of Jesus. Necklaces are worn by many satanist's. It can be seen on Rock singers and their album covers.

  • By turning the human incarnation of Satan upside down, Drudge has created an amulet of protection. Should Osama attack, the Drudge Report will be the garlic to his vampire and drive him away from America. Like a silver bullet, we may use the Drudge Report to kill him.
  • 2. At the climax of the first Harry Potter book, Professor Quirrell removes his turban, revealing a tiny Lord Voldemort on the back of his head. Matt Drudge is concerned that the same thing may be happening to bin Laden. It's a bit like Magic Eye: If you stare at upside-down Osama long enough, Voldemort will pop right out at you.
  • 3. If he didn't put bin Laden upside down, we might accidentally think he liked terrorism. Liberal media make this mistake all the time.
  • 4. Human error
  • 5. Whimsy
