In a story that combines Saddam Hussein, the “South Park” movie, and U.S. Marines’ twisted humor, “South Park” creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker were given an autographed photo of the former Iraqi dictator who was executed in 2006.
Stone, 37, said both he and Parker, 39, were most proud of the signed Saddam photo, given to them by the US Army’s 4th Infantry Division.
He said: “We’re very proud of our signed Saddam picture and what it means. Its one of our biggest highlights. I have it on pretty good information from the marines on detail in Iraq that they showed Saddam the movie. Over and over again – which is a pretty funny thought.”
For a second there, I was like, “Awww, poor Saddam.” That’s probably the first time I’ve ever said that about someone who killed entire Kurdish communities with mustard gas, or ran electrical current through a river to kill troops crossing it. Probably.
