Saddam Hussein's Super Yacht 'The Two-Humped Camel'

NICE, France - Saddam Hussein's 269-foot luxury yacht, 'The Two-Humped Camel' is being put up for sale. The super yacht is valued at $35 million.

The vessel is equipped with several swimming pools, various fancy salons, exquisite restaurants, plush bars, and a state-of-the-art rocket launching system. The Iranian government holds the title to the vessel and is planning to list it on eBay.

The yacht has been docked in Nice, France where the Captain has been renting out some of the fancier state rooms to French couples for as much as $1,000 a night, or $2,000 a night if the couples are adulterous.

The super yacht is decorated throughout in authentic Iranian motif. The ship is decked out with 15 tons of Iranian sand, two dozen Iranian palm trees, 11 one-humped Iranian camels, and 14 two-humped Iranian camels. The 25 camels are free to roam around on their own half acre 'camel zone.'

The yacht's commander, Captain Omar Shiek Sheck a la Shick stated that the vessel can comfortably accomodate about 1,200 Iranians, or about 1,900 if they are all completely naked.

The state-of-the-art yacht is equipped with dozens of Blu-Ray High Definition TV's, 2000 Watt DVD Home Theater Systems, CD players, iPods, and a HP computer system that is equipped with 4 million gigabytes or roughly enough space to hold about 880 million songs, or 930 million if the songs are the short two and a half minute Beatle songs.

The ship also has a standard-sized McDonalds Restaurant which not only serves Big Macs, fries, and chicken McNuggets, but also sand crabs, coconuts, and camel McNuggets as well.

The drive thru window, however is temporarily closed because one of the drive thru customers was drunk and he crashed his one-humped camel into the drive thru window causing extensive damage to the window, the counter, as well as to the poor camel.

In other news, Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass will be going on a reunion tour throughout England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. They will not be playing music, they will just be touring (as tourists).
