Top 10 Comments Made By Saddam On Capture

Top 10 comments made by Saddam Hussein after his capture

1. I've been hiding away for the last six months so I only have one thing to say - farmers of Iraq, lock up your goats!

2. Hiding alone for months was a drag. I wouldn't have made it without my EcoNation CD to listen to for some hip vibes.

3. Sure, I'll show you weapons of mass destruction. I haven't showered in 6 months. Wanna smell my armpits?

4. First off, big ups to all my friends at Radio New Zealand.

5. Bearded, grumpy, belligerent; actually, I'm Pete Hodgson.

6. You guys know I was kidding with all that "fight to the death" stuff don't you?

7. This is yet another disaster for the evil imperialist occupiers!

8. Boy, I can't wait to hear what Helen Clark has to say about this.

9. I lost the will to carry on after TVNZ dropped Jim Hickey.

10. Does anyone have Deborah Manning's phone number?

Be brave and pass it on!
