This one will likely be a quick one. Also, it should be said right up front this is based on a joke, not a true scrund. Do we have a word for a deliberate misunderstanding?

I know the two events were not related, but current events are a lot more entertaining if I choose to believe they were.

Current events = the Royal wedding? Bin Laden's death? Tornadoes? Flooding? Some other natural disaster?

Relevant that Bin Laden died after the Royal Wedding took place? Would it work if the events had taken place in reverse order?

Relevant that various countries' royal families were represented at the wedding? Is the fact that Bin Laden did not get an invitation relevant? *snort* (As though they would invite him...)

Relevant that 2 billion people were expected to watch the royal wedding? That Bin Laden apparently did not have a TV? Or Internet? And therefore missed it? (Ha.)

Galfisk
According to the joke, did the wedding cause him to get caught? Not directly, No
Would the joke work if he had been caught alive? Yes, with a slight "ish".
Is the internet relevant (other than that the joke was on the internet)? No
News media relevant? No

Shez

congratulations? No

Peter365
Is the fact that William & Kate (yummy) did not go on honeymoon relevant? No, but OTRT
Are any guests at the wedding relevant? No
Elton John? No

Not sure I should ask this but is the furore about Pippa Middleton's rather nice posterior relevant? No
(and there was furore? I mean, I had the thought 'Wow, Pippa is kind of upstaging the bride because she looks pretty amazing in that dress'.)


Shez

Ha! Hey, I'm a straight woman and even I'm not blaming imaginary friends for pointing out that Pippa looked smokin' hot. ;)

Any music played at the wedding relevant?

If the wedding had not been the royal one, would the joke still work? If it had been a wedding that was well-publicized? Between celebrities? An ordinary wedding between your average two people?

Adding to Balin's above post, if it had been a different British Royal wedding, for instance Princess Diana's, would it work? Some other wedding between a male British royal guy and a woman who isn't royal? A royal wedding involving royalty from another country? And to explore a hypothetical Diana wedding more:
If Diana were alive and had gotten marrried a couple weeks ago instead of Prince William, would it have worked?
If bin Laden had been killed shortly after her actual wedding (before 9/11)
If William and Kate had gotten married on Diana's wedding day instead of her and bin Laden had died shortly after.

I typed "hate" instead of "Kate" above, but corrected myself. Freudian slip?

Kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace relevant? The fact that they kissed twice.

Anything to do with the fact that Obama watched the killing of OBL as it happened?

As an aside the aforementioned nice posterior has it's own Facebook appreciation page - and no neither I or my "friend" have joined....yet

Balin
Any music played at the wedding relevant? No
If the wedding had not been the royal one, would the joke still work? Maybe?*
If it had been a wedding that was well-publicized? Maybe?*
Between celebrities? Maybe?*
An ordinary wedding between your average two people? I suppose, but very few people would get the joke so then the joke itself would not work.

Gregoryuconn
Adding to Balin's above post, if it had been a different British Royal wedding, for instance Princess Diana's, would it work? Maybe?*
Some other wedding between a male British royal guy and a woman who isn't royal? Maybe?*
A royal wedding involving royalty from another country? Maybe?*

And to explore a hypothetical Diana wedding more: You certainly can but I don't think it's helping...
If Diana were alive and had gotten marrried a couple weeks ago instead of Prince William, would it have worked? Maybe?*
If bin Laden had been killed shortly after her actual wedding (before 9/11)? I suppose, but we are getting very close to the joke making NO sense.
If William and Kate had gotten married on Diana's wedding day instead of her and bin Laden had died shortly after. It would still work given some other variables.

Shez
is it to do with Wills' job as a helicopter pilot? Yes, in a very round about way.
or honeymooning in Pakistan? Um, no. They didn't.
or getting a plane almost anywhere following the events of 9/11? No, totally irrel.

Peter365
Kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace relevant? Nope.
The fact that they kissed twice. No, but that me go "Awwwwww.

Anything to do with the fact that Obama watched the killing of OBL as it happened? No

*I am doing my best on these questions about "would the joke work if...", but we determined really early on that the joke is specifically about Will & Kate and their recent wedding...so in a sort of fundamental sense, No - It won't work without those details, because it absoutely involves those details, specifically.

Okay, how about a quick RECAP because wow are we wandering far afield here.

I know the two events were not related, but current events are a lot more entertaining if I choose to believe they were.

- Based on a joke.
- The two events are the Royal Wedding and Bin Laden’s death
- It is relevant that Bin Laden died AFTER the wedding
- The joke claims that Bin Laden’s death was Yope-ishly caused by the Royal Wedding
- The joke works if Bin Laden had been captured alive
- The joke does not pertain to wedding guests, wedding music or Pippa

Hello...

So, according to the joke, once the wedding took place the capture/death of UBL was not simply coincidence?

Are the US Navy Seals relevant?
The British Royal Navy?
Other military/armed services?
Is it relevant that helicopters were involved with the strike on the compound?
Does the joke imply that William was in Pakistan prior to the wedding? After the wedding?

Does the joke imply that Kate was involved in catching bin Laden as well?

Does the joke imply that Will "went" after OBL to bring something back to Kate? To prove something?

Just to make sure, is his name relevant? Hers?

***** SPOILER *****

After the news broke about Bin Laden, a friend of mine reposted something a friend of hers had posted to Facebook. It said something along the lines of “Will and Kate leave Buckingham for an undisclosed ‘honeymoon’ location and the next thing Bin Laden’s dead. I think it’s pretty clear what’s going on. W & K are trained assassins.”


This puzzle nicely illustrated how tough it is to figure out what someone else finds funny. Good work all! You were all quite tenacious in getting to the solution!
