(Newser) – There's plenty of serious and smart analysis going on about the newly released Osama bin Laden videos and what they say about the al-Qaeda leader's life in hiding. If you need a break from the melodrama, check out Mediaite's video comparing a tape in which bin Laden flubs a line with a 2006 Family Guy spoof of him making a blooper reel.

The show's bin Laden "wore the same thing, stood before the same background, and mistakenly called the holiday Ramadan 'Radaman,' and chortled his way through the entire video, bringing in props and chumming around with the camera," writes Frances Martel. "Clearly no one quite had the pulse on bin Laden at the time better than Seth MacFarlane."
