Saddam’s execution coming soon to a theater near you. Well, not unless you live in Kolkata, India. They are expecting huge profits from “Saddam at the Gallows” in the “jatras”. Wow, Saddam’s hanging and a puppet show all in the same matinee … fine family entertainment.
The play opens in a high-security prison where Saddam is being held, with a debate about whether hanging him is the right thing to do. The curtain falls with Saddam being led away to the gallows.
“We are deliberating whether to enact Saddam’s hanging live on stage because many people may not like it,” Roy said. (Reuters)
Go figure, many people may not like a “live hanging”. Who knew? I bet many Kurds would beg to differ with you. With all the recent success of Borat in the United States and movie companies trying to buy into its success; would it be out of the question to have Saddam’s hanging on pay-per-view? I bet that would help pay for the war in Iraq. (That was sarcasm)
