'Saddam good design, methinks

(Defecated News) For years, the Royal Mint has taken pride in creating inspirational and thought-provoking coinage and.....note-age. But that flare for 'pushing the boundaries ' may have gone a step too far some citizens.

The new £20 note is to feature an image of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein on the back. The reasons are not obvious, but consultant to the project Sandi Toksvog told The Spoof,

"We at the Royal Mint have tried to reflect the views of the people who told us that invading Iraq was wrong. So as a result we would like to do what is right and allow people to imagine that Saddam was still there every time they open their wallets, or purses, or pockets, well....you get the drift, yeah?"

It is also believed by many that next year's Movember charity event will feature Saddam also, in honour of his 'splendidly glorious facial hair'

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
