South Park: Smarter, Funnier, and adding insult to injury

From Yahoo! UK:

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.

Bill at INDC adds, "...I must bask in this perfect manifestation of justice in the South Park conservative worldview (aggressive foreign policy topples murderous dictator, who is then taunted with [a] naughty, filthy (South Park!) movie)..."

For those of you not familiar with South Park's depiction of Saddam, he is a Candian pansy (with requisite flip-top head) who was mauled to death by badgers before descending into Hell and beginning a homosexual relationship with Satan.... who eventually discovers that Saddam is only after his power as lord of the underworld.....

When Satan confronts Saddam, he whines his way back into Satan's heart with a song and dance number worthy of Rogers and Hammerstein (NSFW for language)

Heh. Between that and Kim Jong-Il's alleged ire over Team America, these guys are getting to our enemies in a big way.
