Sly Saddam had hoped to avoid the cameras, but an admiring public is not so easily put off! Sporting the stylish new beard that is unquestionably about to become the next big fashion statement to sweep the dictatorati, Saddam gave in and posed for the cameras, even giving a DNA sample or two for his adoring admirers.
Sources say the excitement was difficult to stifle as folks shot guns in the air like makeshift fireworks. It is reported that Saddam will return to Baghdad for a celebrity roast which will involve a rehash of all his most notable exploits, followed by a grand finale in which his fans will finally be able to pay him back just a little bit of what he has given them throughout his storied career.
