Did Osama and his current family own a part of Microsoft?

I am a Mac person, but I thought it was an interesting thing someone told me this morning. I really did not check the facts, but if he did that is funny.

As long as you own shares in a company, you own part of that company. Not to mention, Osama and the bin Laden family have been estranged for quite a few years.

...Why would that be funny?
