 Shaddam Shaddam in the Vaudeville Scam!
Back in the mock courtroom, more than a few people were wondering why Saddam Hussein, a real stickler for being clean shaven and having short hair since he was a teenager, should suddenly choose to change the habits of a lifetime and appear like a tramp with long matted hair and a bushy unkempt beard.
Of course, Shaddam is hoping that it will only be a mock execution and a mock burial, because he has been promised the usual Mossad perks of a new identity, two million bucks, a fast car, and free airline tickets to Monte Carlo.
