HEY!!! Who let that crazy Korean fruitcake in here!?!?!
Someone count the silverware after he leaves. I don't trust him.
And count the canisters of Sarin gas also. Um, what I mean is that someone should count the canisters of Sarin if we actually had any, which we don't.
We may have have had some Sarin a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, but that was destroyed years ago in compliance with United Nations resolutions. Really. I swear. Cross my heart and hope to die!!
Oops.... Bad choice of words on my part!

The Americans say that they have intelligence that our nuclear research labs in Wang Bang Bing Bong are trying to design warheads that will fit on our existing missiles.
Now, I must admit to be being curious. Are these the same intelligence sources that did such a fabulous job finding Saddam's weapons of mass destruction? Because if that's the case, I'm off the hook. No one's ever going to believe those guys again!
Well, it's almost dinner time. I'm having dog soup.
Life is good.

Reader and loyal disciple Tung writes: Your Saddamness, I don't know if you read the infidel newswires, but I saw this story (about the audiotape you just released). "The speaker also called the deaths of Odai and Qusai 'good news, that is the hope of every fighter for God's sake, as another group of noble souls of the martyrs have ascended to their creator.'" I don't know who this idiot is who claims to be you, but he sounds really stupid. I mean, it sounds like he and the infidels are after the same goal -- the death of you and all of your supporters.
Er, that is, I'm assuming the tapes are NOT you. After all, why would you need to release tapes when you've got your blog?
Well, first of all thank you for writing, Tung. It is truly brave of you to commit such a public act of suicide, for that tape was indeed me!
Look, I am a very talented, multi-faceted artist who does not like to confine his work to merely one medium. You get pigeonholed quite easily that way, and once you're pigeonholed, it's much easier for the unholy Coalition forces to reach in and grab you by the cahones. In my case, that would still be difficult, since I have enormous cahones. They're the size of basketballs. Except kind of greasy, so they're hard to grip. Still, I don't want to take the chance.
Nevertheless, I appreciate your feedback. I haven't shot anyone all day.

So I'm driving along the Iraq Turnpike--formerly the Saddam Turnpike--in my '73 Chevy Vega with the fuzzy dice gently swinging back & forth from the rearview mirror when I come to a tollbooth. Since the 3rd Infantry Armored Division is practically right my rear bumper, I'm in just a bit of a hurry. I decide to get in the exact change lane.
Naturally enough, it turns out the guy in front of me doesn't have the exact change. Now I ask you, dear reader and devoted Saddam minion: Why does this only happen when I'm in a hurry!?!? It never happens when I'm on my way to something like a wedding or a massacre that wouldn't dare start without me. No, it only happens when I'm genuinely rushed.
Well, being a type A personality, it goes without saying that I blew my horn at the idiot. And what does he do?
He flips me off!!!!!!!!!
Needless to say, this was not smartest decision this moron ever made in his suddenly abbreviated life.
Seriously: It is not wise to make obscene gestures towards other drivers, especially when you're the one who is in the wrong. You have no idea who that other person is. I mean, how would you feel if you later find out you just flipped your dear sweet grandmother the bird? Of course you'd feel bad! That's understandable. But I'm betting you wouldn't feel quite as bad as you would upon discovering that you just told a ruthless, homicidal, world-famous dictator who routinely carries a rocket propelled grenade launcher in his glovebox, and is desperately fleeing for his life, to go go f*ck himself.
I'm betting you would feel real REAL bad upon learning that.
Needless to say, I'm now scraping the other guy's bady parts off my windshield.

You know what's really bugging me? It's been almost three weeks now since Bush gave gave Liberia's Charles Taylor 48 hours to get out of his country. Fair enough. Allah knows I've encountered that particular policy myself.
However, that deadline has now come and gone some ten times over. Not only is Taylor still in power, but Bush hasn't done anything about it!! No cruise missiles or 2000 pound JDAM's reducing his treetop thatch bunker to kindling!! On the other hand, when my 48 hours was up, I barely had time to change the sand in my shorts before the Tomahawks came a-knockin' on my bunker door. Now does that seem right to you? It better not, because it stinks to high heaven for me, and if you disagree, you and I are going to have to talk.
My point is merely that if you're going to go around giving every ruthless dictator and his family 48 hours to get out of town, you had better be prepared to enforce the deadline equally.
Otherwise, you might lose your credibility (pause for uproarious laughter here).
I'm sure Bush has his reasons for treating our cases differently. Personally, I think it's a racial thing. After all, one man's affirmitive action is another's reverse discrimination.

I am almost beginning to feel sorry for the American occupiers. They work so very hard at finding me, yet they always keep coming up empty. Sure, they come across clues that I had just been somewhere mere hours before--dirty laundry, empty gum wrappers, puddles of chewing tobacco spit, mustache clippings, crinkled Dixie Chicks posters with unidentifiable stains on them, used condoms--but never me, myself, or I!! I imagine it must be quite frustrating!! If they weren't in my country illegally, tearing my sh*t up, and making an unbelievable mess of things, I might just be willing to shed a tear for them.
Did I just say that? I must be getting soft in my old age. Um, I mean, my young age. I'm only 39. Really. What? You don't believe me? Maybe you'd like to come over here and correct me to my face? Oh, wait.... you'd have to find me first!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!! You silly infidel ninnies do amuse me at times.
Granted, they did find my sons, but those idiots deserved to be found. What in Allah's name were they doing cruising around Mosul in a frikkin' BMW, for Christ's sakes!?! I mean, for Mohammad's sakes!?! Most people in this country ride mules and camels, and they're laying rubber up and down crowded city streets in a finely crafted expensive German driving machine, trying to pick up chicks!?! No wonder they were recognized!
Now me, I blend right in with this '73 Chevy Vega. And the constant cloud of smoke spewing out the tail pipe serves to further obscure my true whereabouts.
Anyway, the Americans have searching for me all day long in Tikrit and coming up empty. Oh well. Such is life when you're part of an unwelcome illegal occupying force.

Let me throw out a purely hypothetical situation for you: Say I do, in fact, end up being captured (Not that anything is imminent). What will I be charged with? Being a mean and nasty leader? Well, then shouldn't Castro, Kim jung il, and those older than dirt octagenarians leading China these days also be on trial? As I've said before, I'm a despot. Being oppressive goes with the turf. It's on page 57 of The Official Despot Pocket Guide to Leadership: "You shall brutally crush all opposition to your rule." And Despotism for Dummies says, "Just go out and kill everyone you don't like." Even the new edition of The One Minute Dictator sums it in Chapter 4 with "Shoot." That's it. That's the whole chapter. And Chapter 5 says "A lot." So don't act all shocked and surprised. It's what I do. Accountants crunch numbers, lawyers navigate the legal system, AOL provides slow internet acces, and despots eliminate their oppostion.
Have I ever come barging into your cubicle and told you how to do your job? No, of course not. Mainly because I couldn't get past the receptionist, but that's besides the point. So please, just let me do my job. As the great philosopher Rodney King once said, "Can't we all just get along?"
And no one has found any "weapons of massive destruction," so I haven't violated any UN resolutions. Granted, I Used have them. But I used most of them up on the Shiites (and I think the Americans will now agree with my approach to the Shiites) and Kurds, and destroyed the rest. Okay, so I couldn't fully account for all the quantities of sarin and mustard gas I once had.
But since when is lousy record keeping a crime against humanity?

The Americans continue to be surprised by the increasing level of resistance to their illegal occupation of Iraq, and the ongoing loyalty many of the fighters have towards me. And I'm sure that while the martyrdom of my sons was pleasing to a teeny tiny minority of Iraqis who do not value their lives and wish to die horrible/painful/ghastly/grisly deaths, the fact remains that the fight is not over.
Of course the fighters remain devoted to me. They know how how foolish it would be to do otherwise. Until this recent unscheduled and rather rudely imposed "vacation," I had been firmly in control of this land for almost 30 years. My people realize this, and they don't want any silly American-style democracy. After all, most of them are too poor to be eligible for tax cuts anyway.
The point is, they know I'll be back.... And looking to start a new family, but that's beside the point. When I return to power I will be taking names and checking my list to see who's been naughty and who's been loyal--kind of like a really pissed off, gun-toting Santa.
And when I return, I will go right down that naughty list and heads will roll. And I don't mean "heads will roll" in a traditional corporate type sense, with pink slips and severance checks, as people quietly pack up their cubicles and remove the Dilbert strips taped to their walls.
No, I mean heads will roll LITERALLY, bouncing down the steps, out the door, across the sidewalk, and right down the street, eventually clogging the storm drains. That's actually okay, because we live in a frikkin' desert, so who cares if the storm drains are blocked with severed numbskulls? Not me.
Nothing inspires loyalty like fear and uncertainty.

Condolences have been pouring in from around the world. Some of the most touching have come from my close friends Kim Jung il, Osama, Micheal Moore, and Jacques Chirac.

A reader calling himself (or herself--I can't tell without personally checking the parts) theorizes that while Uday may have survived that initial bombing back in March, he did, in fact, lose an eye. That would mean that the eyeball I've been carrying around was indeed his!
That's certainly possible--also a lot less disgusting than carrying some stranger's eyball around. There was a lot of confusion amidst the rubble, debris, and assorted body parts at the time.
It occurs to me that with an eyepatch, Uday would have looked just like Johnny Depp in that new pirate movie.

Now here's a story that brought tears to my eyes:
Mowaffaq Muhmoud Alani, my ambassador to China, won't vacate the Iraqi embassy in Beijing because he refuses to recognize the authority of the illegal aliens occupying Baghdad! He and his wife have gone as far as to barricade themselves in the building with a gun. At night he can be heard listening to old tapes of my speeches.
Now that is dedication that is truly touching!!
I will admit, however, that tape thing is just a bit creepy....

Excellent article in USAToday about how the so-called "occupation" of my country was botched by the Americans. The only thing that confuses me is the occasional reference to "post-Hussein Iraq." Unless I'm mistaken, that implies I'm no longer a factor.
Just because no one has seen me in a while doesn't mean I'm out of the picture.

Well, I have confirmed that both Uday and Qusay were killed earlier today.
However, I must admit that I am more than a little perplexed! I thought Uday had been killed back in March! If he was alive, you'd think he would have called his old man just to say "Hey, pop! What's up? Can I borrow 20 dinars?"

British Prime Minister and loyal American lap dog Tony Blair was in Washington yesterday to address the Congress. He says he is standing by his assertions that I had tons of biological weapons, scores of nuclear bombs, and an orbiting death ray designed to incinerate entire cities from outer space.

Saddam had no weapons of mass destruction, and is actually a really nice guy who loves the outdoors, children, animals, and quiet walks on the beach. Guess we really f*cked up this time, eh?

Today was the 35th anniversery of the coup that brought my Baath party into power. People sometimes ask me what Iraq was like before that happened. "Yo, Saddam," they'll say, "What was Iraq like before that happened?"
Well, it wasn't pretty. Personal hygiene was virtually non-existent since there were no Baaths. But when we took over, we instituted a series of reforms requiring people to take a Baath every two weeks whether they needed to or not. Needless to say, that made a huge difference in our air quality. Well, that, AND the introduction of the catalytic converter.
Anyway, my henchmen--the ones still alive, at any rate--decided to throw me a surprise party. And boy, was it a SURPRISE!! In fact, I was so surprised that I thought it was a coalition raid of some sort!!! I shot four people and beheaded two others before I realized what was going on. Then the survivors and I had a big laugh!
I ended up getting some really great gifts: Several boxes of chocolates, some very pretty flowers, a bottle of wine (French, of course), a blender, three bazookas, and a rocket propelled grenade launcher.

Here's something else that really boils the sand in my shorts: On several occasions now, Bush has bragged about how America has "recovered hundreds of millions of dollars looted from Iraq." Then he goes on to say that the money can be use to rebuild Iraq!
Huh? If he hadn't come in here in the first place and bombed the unholy crap out of us in the first place, there wouldn't be any need to rebuild Iraq in the first place, now would there?!
And what "looted" money? There was no looted money! I had it all the time!! It's my country, right? Well, then isn't it also MY money!? Therefor it isn't stealing!! Now if I went across the border to Turkey and robbed a bank in Istanbul, then THAT would be stealing. But for me to use Iraqi money, earned by Iraqis, is most definitely NOT stealing.
It's merely the creative shifting of funds from one account to another. Big American companies like Enron and Worldcom do that all the time. Why isn't Bush invading them?
Oh, right. They're campaign contributors.

Some of you are no doubt wondering how a world renown despot spends a typical day on the run. As any good manager/brutal dictator will tell you, the key to success is organizational skills. And public executions don't hurt either, but that's besides the point.
Being that I'm in a good mood, I have decided to share with you an account of my day.
05:00 AM-----Alarm clock goes off. I empty entire clip into it.
05:30 ---------Second alarm clock goes off. I shoot it. Twice. With a rocket propelled grenade launcher.
06:00---------I get up.
06:01-06:25--Take a piss.
07:01---------Consider taking shower. Remember I took one just last week. Pass on shower.
07:03-07:45--The breakfast of despots: Grits, chitlins, and scrambled babies.
07:46-08:33--Meet with surviving top aids to coordinate the day's harassing attacks against the illegal infidel interlopers.
08:35-08:36--Work up a sweat in the gym so that I can maintain this svelte physique that the chicks really dig.
08:37-09:09--Polish Uday's eyeball.
09:10----------Try to shoot aid for asking why I keep that gross eyeball on my desk but gun is empty. Ask aid to get me more bullets so I can execute his sorry ass.
09:11-09:28--Finish polishing eyeball.
09:30----------Decide to check today's email.
09:31-10:47--Delete today's spam.
10:48-10:50--Answer remaining email. Forward great joke about farmer's daughter, travelling Christian missionary, and confused camel to Yasser Arafat.
11:24-11:59--Take a piss.
12:01 PM------Remember to put Little Saddam away & close barn door.
12:02-12:40--Meet with Sid Goldstein, my agent, to go over terms of new recording contract with Al-Jazeera. Sid recommends holding out for more money.
12:41----------Realize that if nothing else, Jews make great agents.
12:42-01:17--Working lunch with French government officials. Um, I mean French TOURISTS.... OFFICIAL French tourists.... Official French Tourists from France. Yeah, that's what I meant.
01:18-----------Lunch briefly interrupted when Randall Simon runs into room and inexplicably starts to beat my sausage with a baseball bat. Try to shoot him; gun still empty. Damn.
01:19-01:57--Finish what's let of lunch.
01:59-----------Elude capture. Make funny faces at pursuers.
02:00-02:47--Take a piss.
02:48----------Call my doctor to get prostate checked.
02:49-03:28--Take inventory of remaining supplies of rocket propelled grenades. Fax order for new supply to Jacques Chirac.
03:29----------Elude capture. I taunt my pursuers.
03:30----------Realize that aid from this morning never came back with more bullets. Note to self: Shoot him twice.
04:02----------Urologist calls back to cancel appointment. His office has been looted of rubber gloves.
04:03----------Snotnosed kid from mailroom shows up with package from NetFlix.com. Suspect kid may be a CIA spy, so I decide to shoot him.
04:04----------Damn. Still out of bullets.
04:05----------Open package. The movie is Bound. Osama recommended it. Said it's perfect example of the decadence that pervades the west. Said he watches it at least once a week, especially chapters 7 & 9.
04:06----------Elude capture. Drop pants and moon pursuers.
04:07-04:57--Conduct cabinet meeting. Am only one in room. Could be bad sign. Not sure.
04:58----------Bored, I elude capture.
05:24----------Farmer shows up. Wants goat back.
05:25----------Receive IM from that crazy Korean, Kim Il Whathisface. Not sure what it says. Can't read Korean.
05:51-06:27--Take a piss.
06:28-06:59--Go out to Kentucky Fried Camel. Can't fit tank through stupid drive-thru so have to go inside. Order bucket of camel wings.
07:00-07:53--Eat wings. Begin watching Bound.
07:54---------Pause movie. Elude capture. Resume movie.
09:01---------Finish watching movie.
09:02-10:00--Watch chapters 7 & 9 over & over till my wrist hurts.
10-00-10:45--Update blog before turning in.
11:16---------Go to bed. Fall asleep to Dixie Chicks CD.

Apparently a major sandstorm is brewing over Bush's accusation that I tried to buy uranium from Niger, and there is an awful lot of finger pointing going on about who knew what when.
And the reason that there is no evidence I never did that is that I NEVER did!!! Really!!! Trust me on that!!! I have NEVER EVER tried to buy uranium from Niger. Nope. That entire allegation was absurd from the get go!!! I'm every bit as innocent of that as O.J.!

He did this despite his own Central Infidel Agency saying that the information wasn't credible. Bush, however, made the statement because the British had uncovered the alleged evidence. But the British now say they couldn't verify the information, but they nonetheless believed it because the Americans did!!!

Why should Bush be allowed to do something I can't? Or Iran or North Korea for that matter? Don't WE deserve nukes, too, or is that a right that's reserved for peace loving democracies?
Watch your step, people. The irony is getting awfully thick in US foreign policy. And this is REAL irony, not that bogus "I can only find a fork when I need a spoon" irony that Alanis Morissette sings about. That's not irony, babe; that's just poor organization of your cutlery drawer.

Maybe after I retire, I'll hit the lecture circuit. A guy can make good money doing motivational speeches these days at places like board meetings, trade conventions, and bar mitzvahs. Well, okay, maybe I'll pass on the bar mitzvahs.

Those of you who still have your long term memories more or less intact may recall that some time ago I complained about some problems the Blogger.com people were having with their archiving functions. In order for the archives to display correctly, I had to reset my time zone to PST even though I'm actually halfway around the planet from there. Now don't misunderstand me; I love the people of the PST. Some of my most loyal supporters in America live in the PST. That hotbed of anti-American sentiment, Hollywood, is in the PST!!!
