Is this torture?

...or just downright hilarious (and justified)?

I followed this link to Yahoo News from Instapundit:

Saddam's cartoon capers:

Former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein is being made to watch his appearance in cult cartoon South Park while he is behind bars.

The deposed leader on trial in Iraq was featured in the movie spin-off as the lover of the devil. South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut featured Hussein and Satan attempting to take over the world together.

Speaking at the Edinburgh International Television Festival, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone said US Marines guarding the former dictator during his trial for genocide were making him watch the movie "repeatedly".

"I have it on pretty good information from the Marines on detail in Iraq that they showed him the movie last year. That's really adding insult to injury. I bet that made him really happy," Stone said.

Here's video of all Saddam's (and Satan's) scenes from the movie via

Warning, contains explicit language and sexual content.

Should we give Matt and Trey medals for providing such rich and powerful video for use in annoying the former dictator?  Maybe...
