Saddam (Hunger) Strikes Out

After another one of Saddam Hussein’s attorneys was murdered, the “Butcher of Baghdad” went on a hunger strike. As it turns out, the “hunger strike” lasted only through the deviled eggs and bread sticks, and was over by the time the main course arrived.

Let this be an example for the next lawyer willing to take on the case for Saddam: If something happens to you, Hussein will protest to the point of skipping appetizers. Yes, he’s that loyal.

Hunger strikes are “in” these days. Now we’ll see how long Cindy Sheehan, Willie Nelson, Danny Glover and Dick Gregory can last. This one will be especially tough, since Willie’s second hand smoke is bound to cause a wicked case of the munchies among the participants.
