Muffins of Mass Distraction


Via reader Gary Gunnels comes this CNN update on Saddam Hussein:

Saddam 'gardens, eats muffins'

Former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein spends his time in solitary confinement writing poems, tending a garden, reading the Koran and eating American muffins and cookies, a British newspaper has reported….

Good work if you can find it.

Whole thing here.

And Slobodan Milosevic is doubtless doing isometrics and reading Archie Comics…

  1. When I first read the article I was instantly reminded of the muffin top episode on Seinfeld.

  2. As long as we’re on the subject of Seinfeld, didn’t Saddam have a cameo as a taxi driver on Seinfeld? Maybe he was going to hang out with his fellow fascist the Soup Nazi?

  3. I believe Saddam once appeared on Seinfeld and double parked infront of George’s car.

  4. You know. The one guy whose torture I could agree with isn’t getting tortured. Heck, petty thieves have it worse than Saddam. I wonder if he’s rowing the 8 in the overthrown dictators prison regatta.

    Sucks to be a minion.

  5. I wonder if the reason Saddam isn’t tortured is that nobody in the hierarchy wants underlings learning to enjoy torturing formerly powerful people…
