image for Head 'N' Shoulders franchise buys Saddam brother's execution video rights
Should have used Head 'N' Shoulders...

Baghdad - (Ass Mess): Iraqi government officials are protesting tonight that the head of Saddam's half brother Barzan Ibrahim al-Tikriti literally fell off from shock after he and fellow convicted conspirator Awad Hamed al-Bandar stepped onto the gallows and learned that the video footage rights to their execution had been bought on eBay by a local franchisee of the UK shampoo manufacturer Head 'N' Shoulders.

Al-Tikriti's decapitation has been described as a totally unexpected shocking event and a million-to-one occurence in the veiled world of celebrity hangings. But insider sources claiming to have had a sneak preview of the video say that razor wire might have been used instead of the traditional cord woven from the hair of unborn bactrian camels.

The two men's corpses have now been taken away for burial while local officials investigate the Baghdad shampoo company's marketing strategy amid fears a TV advertising campaign could send out the wrong message to balding insurgents in the Shitt el-Arab region.

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