image for "Saddam Channel" Brings Back The Good, Old Days Of Iraq
Just when you thought the bastard was dead and gone for good...

A new, mysterious pirate television channel has started broadcasting in Iraq called "Saddam Television". No one knows the source of the broadcast, but it is surely the work of members of his devoted Baath Party.

The programming started airing exactly three years to the day after his execution.

Programming highlights of the channel are:

MUSLIM GIRLS GONE WILD!- Fundamentalist women lift up their veils!

WHO'S ASSASINATING ME NOW?- Clips of Saddam doubles being offed by pissed off Iraqis.

IRAQS FAVORITE HOME VIDEOS- Hilarious outtakes of Americas soldiers breaking into Iraqi homes at night to round up insurgents.

GREAT MOMENTS AT WAR- Short, five minute newsreel showcasing Iraqi successes against coalition forces in both Gulf Wars.

THE GOOD OLD DAYS- A nostalgic look back at life under Saddam when the only time people got tortured and killed was when you crossed the big guy. Also when there was money to buy things, housing without holes blown in it and water to drink.

HOW TO RUN A COUNTRY LIKE IT WAS YOUR PERSONAL BANK- El Mustachio himself gives tips on how to milk an economy for all you can get.

THE PALACES OF SADDAM- A nightly, year long series presenting each day a new lavish home that Saddam had built for himself. A companion piece to How To Run A Country Like It Was Your Personal Bank.

It is widely suspected by intelligence personnel investigating the illegal channel that it drew inspiration from the new movie "Pirate Radio" that is in cinemas now.

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