Happy Birthday, Saddam!

Former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein turns 69 today, his third birthday in prison for killing more people than anyone can count. The US military which guards him has unaccountably not made any plans for a party, nor a cake, nor a gift.

This is a vast difference from Saddam's birthday bashes of old, which were marked by lavish partying capped off by ostentatious military parades. This year, Saddam will celebrate by sharing some bread crusts with the cockroaches in his cell whom he will lead in a triumphal march. Later tonight he will conduct a purge against the bedbugs, whom he considers traitors.

With luck, Saddam will never turn 70.
