Saddam's Next Gig


Where should we send an exiled Saddam? So asks this L.A. Times goof. What makes it funny is that the writer actually called relevent folks/destinations for comment: Would they be interested in taking in Saddam?

Most joked along. Not all:

"Penn's publicist, Mara Buxbaum, was not amused by the question. 'It seems highly inappropriate and offensive to include Sean in your article," she said. "If you're going to mention him, I will be contacting his lawyers.' Buxbaum noted that during Penn's trip to Iraq, the actor never said anything kind about Hussein. 'He called him a tyrant,' she said."

I'm for locking the dictator up with a season of Seventh Heaven episodes on permanent loop and a lifetime supply of sugar-free, low-carb meal bars for sustenance. In other words, he'd live in my own personal hell. Muhahahaha.
