Saddam’s Forced To See His Own Cartoon Character In ‘South Park’

London, Aug 28:

Former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein is being tormented in jail by
being forced to watch himself in the ‘South Park’ animation series.

He is portrayed in the movie version of the cult cartoon as the
Devil’s gay lover.

South Park, the cartoon series was banned in Iraq on its launch in 1999
for showing Saddam as a homosexual. The film featured him trying to
take over the world with Satan.

South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone yesterday revealed that
Saddam was made to watch the movie “repeatedly” by the US Marines
guarding him. “I have it on pretty good information from the Marines
on detail in Iraq that they showed him the movie. That’s really
adding insult to injury. I bet that made him really happy,” The Sun
quoted Matt as saying while speaking at Edinburgh TV Festival.

The American animators also confirmed that Tom Cruise threatened to
pull out of all publicity for Mission Impossible III unless Paramount,
which also makes South Park, axed a repeat showing of an episode
lampooning him.
