And now it makes perfect sense that I never liked South Park.
South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker still can’t believe a signed photo of Saddam Hussein U.S. Marines sent them is for real – but they hope it is.
Legend has it the troops screened the duo’s 1999 film South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut before the former Iraqi dictator was executed in 2006.
In the film, an animated Hussein is depicted as Satan’s gay lover.
Stone says, “We’re very proud of our signed Saddam picture and what it means… I have it on pretty good information from the Marines on detail in Iraq that they showed Saddam the movie over and over again, which is a pretty funny thought.”
Because as much as I disliked Saddam Hussein – and I really did – his trial was a sham and the man was murdered. That’s not something to be proud of. And when you’re an idiot with not the slightest bit of political understanding, your “satire” tends to fall flat.
