So Very Perfect By Betsy Newmark

The Marines holding Saddam Hussein have found something even crueler than waterboarding. They’re making Saddam watch South Park making fun of him.

Former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein is being made to watch his appearance in cult cartoon South Park while he is behind bars.

The deposed leader on trial in Iraq was featured in the movie spin-off as the lover of the devil. South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut featured Hussein and Satan attempting to take over the world together.

Speaking at the Edinburgh International Television Festival, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone said US Marines guarding the former dictator during his trial for genocide were making him watch the movie “repeatedly”.

“I have it on pretty good information from the Marines on detail in Iraq that they showed him the movie last year. That’s really adding insult to injury. I bet that made him really happy,” Stone said.

Parker and Stone could have no clearer sign of their importance: they are now a torture video. Hee hee.

I expect we’ll be hearing from Amnesty International and the Red Cross about this.
