Osama Fin Laden on 'The Colbert Report'On 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central), Stephen Colbert illustrated a point about how much Osama Bin Laden had changed things by recalling how the news in the summer of 2001 had been dominated by reports of shark attacks (a.k.a., "The Summer of the Shark") before the events of Sept. 11 made things much more serious.

"No! No, you fools!" he yelped.

"Don't you realize the Fukushima [Nuclear] Plant is releasing massive radiation into the sea?" Colbert warned. "And if a mutant shark combines with Osama's DNA, we could be facing 'The Summer of Fin Laden!'"
