Former brutal dictator Saddam Hussein, in a statement from his cell in the newly created partially- incharge- ocracy of Iraq that if the world ended tomorrow, that would be just fine with him.
"No, really," He said, "It could just blow up or get snowed under like in that new movie, and I would smile."
Saddam is currently in therapy for the depression resulting from the loss of his one and only dictatorship.
"We see this all the time." Dr. Sanjay Groupbang told the Spoof. "You're a despot for so long, you forget what it can be like to be the little guy, charged with crimes against humanity."
"This is the only trial that's ever been slanted against him, too." The good doctor added. "Usually it's him on the giving end."
President Bush said of Saddam's condition and subsequent announcement. "Well... tell him that... as a... a free people won't take that from no.. from him again."
"It's not right, what they're doing to him." Saddam's other personality said Thursday. "They're making him impossible to live with. We used to have good times torturing, murdering, now we're lucky if we get to step on a cockroach in our cell!"
Rumors continue to pour in from secret government sources that Saddam Hussein has confessed to being in league with Osama Bin Laden, as well.
"Yeah, him, Hezbollah, Moe, Larry, Curly, Pinky AND the Brain." He is quoted as saying.
The Spoof's Justice Department source said that no one had the heart to tell him the world wasn't going to end any time soon. Now that's compassion.
