Secondly, this little gem, courtesy of Hugo Rifkind:
The film version of South Park was originally banned in Iraq, largely because it portrayed Saddam Hussein, the then President, as the homosexual lover of Satan. At the Edinburgh International Television Festival, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, its creators, said that marines guarding the ex-dictator made him watch the film repeatedly. Did he laugh?
First commenter to post a link to a blog or article screaming "Torture!" wins a Blue Peter badge or some such.
