International terrorist ringleader Osama Bin Laden and horsemouthed actress Julia Roberts have both decided to turn over new leaves and go into business together in the management of a Stride Rite shoe store.
Bin Laden stated in a press release "I really admire the Stride Rite brand. The shoes are quite comfortable for all environments, and I look forward to spending the rest of my life working at this store."
Roberts added "I have sixteen pairs of the Purple Pinks. Soooo comfy."
Bin Laden and Roberts met long ago as teenagers at the University of Beijing, where Bin Laden majored in Hearing and Roberts majored in Listening. The two fields of study have quite a bit of overlap, and Roberts and Bin Laden often sat together in the back of lecture halls, cracking wise and discussing footwear. The friends lost touch as their careers diverged, but a chance meeting in a Pakistani hookah bar three months ago brought them back together--now, as business partners!
The Bin Laden/Roberts Stride Rite will be in the King of Prussia Mall, outside Philadelphia.
