Blame Canada! Blame Canada!

Whether true or not, just the thought of this is too funny!

(And for those of you who've never seen South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut, the plot revolves around a deceased Saddam Hussein having a homosexual relationship with Satan, and provoking a war between the United States and Canada in order to bring about the apocalypse . . . great satire, if you can handle all the cursing and vulgarity).

From Yahoo News:

Saddam's cartoon capers Monday August 28, 08:11 AM

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.
