Saddam 'On Jihad'

NEW YORK--Saddam Hussein held a book signing in Times Square today, autographing hundreds of copies of his new autobiography "You say Jihad, I say Jihad". Thousands waited in line, many overnight, and up to 800 were turned away in the end without so much as a glimpse of the former dictator.

The FBI attended the signing, but was in the back of the line and could not have their books signed or even make an arrest before being turned away by event promoters.

"I didn't even get to see him," complained Special Agent Jason Banks. "I even camped here overnight just so I could make the arrest. My boss is going to be really angry now...and to top it off I didn't even get my damn book signed. What a gyp!"

The FBI has vowed to hound Saddam throughout the rest of his United States book tour, and promises it will camp out at the venue earlier next time.
