...I think it's fair to say that Saddam Hussein was not well-hung.

Ouch.

Damn, I wish I'd thought of this!

Come to think, we all likely did think it - but leave it to Neddie to post it.

yeh, CIA already spent 65 million to ascertain this in '02.

Rumsfeldt was personally disappointed to find out Hussein did not in fact possess a weapon of ass destruction.

Annapolitan said...

Yeah, ouch.

But being the grammarian you are, I am obliged to point out that the correct past tense to refer to an execution by hanging is "hanged."

[Evil chuckle] "...But being the grammarian you are, I am obliged to point out..."

ROTFLMAOATITYAAEWPTIM...!

(Rolling on the floor laughing my ass of at the irony that you are an even worse pedant than I am...)

Neddie said...

The word "of" in my previous comment being, of course, a surreptitious stand-in for the somewhat more correct "off."

Neddie said...

"Oooh! Did you catch Dwight in the shower back there! He's scary-hanged! Hate to meet that in a dark alley!"

Bobby Lightfoot said...

We have learned that incredibly witty plays on the phrase "dangling participle" occur to us only 12-15 hours after they would have been useful.

So, we're to understand that sentence was suspended...?

What an unfortunate twist. That really has to chafe! (But it was still a good line.)

Bad noose. Also proves hemp to be a health threat.

It's been asserted that the death penalty does not have a deterrent effect on behavior.

The best I can tell, I think that means public hangings are a...misplaced modifier.

(See, still useful after 15-18 hours. I'm hanging on to the bitter end!)
