Red Herring Prediction

Post by The Yosemite Bear » 2003-04-06 11:20pm

Given the large amounts of bogus news, and the fact that reality is starting to sound like it came from either Tom Clancy or a Comic Book.

What's the odds on the Sun, World Weekly News, or Equirer reporting that upon clearing a bunker in Bagdad, Hitler's disembodied brain will be found in a Dalek style body, secretly directing/Controling Iraq all of this time?

But the comic book/B-movie preserved Hitler brains always seem to be suffering from severe brain damage and other mental limitations...

Stalin. Hussein is a more of a Stalinist, IIRC.

Actually, I suspect that we'll be hearing about Saddam sightings for decades to come. He will become the Islamic Elvis.

Funny you should mention that. At work this weekend we were discussing the odds of Saddam's doubles getting work in Vegas after the war.

But if we get the real Hussien will any of them do anything but go to ground and hope Israel doesn't decide to be sure we got the right one.

The real Elvis is buried in Tennessee, all 800 pounds of him. That doesn't stop the Elvis sightings in the tabloids.

All the Enquirer has to do is say "US Army won't admit that Hussein corpse found in Baghdad is a double!" and the endless bullshit will begin.

Yes, Saddam likely will join Osama in that role no matter what. As for spotting, you never know. In the 1950's a reporter dressed as a Soviet General and walked around New York for hours without ever being stopped or questioned by anyone.

Reminds me of when someone from CNNNN (I think it was them), went around Sydney dressed as Osama Bin Laden asking people which way to the nuclear power-plants, fuel depots etc...

LOL

This leads me to think of another incident several months ago in LA. Two Mexican men attempted to rob a bank claiming they had an atomic bomb in a suitcase....

I figure Saddam has Hitler's head in a glass jar a la Futurama. Too bad I see those two fighting all the time, cussing eachother out in Arabic and German... Man I need to get well, this fever and going to work still is murder.
