The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Target of opportunity

How could I possibly miss this?

At Lucky Leo's Amusements, patrons who shell out $5 get to fire 60 paint balls at a human decoy dressed in military fatigues and wearing a rubber mask resembling [Saddam Hussein]. The name of the game: Shoot the Geek.

Oh, wait: I didn't.

Saddam Hussein? Sorry. Although the facial and body expressions are very well done (especially the hands-surrendering-in-the-air bit), I don't see the resemblance. Now, if you're talking Mohammed Saeed el-Sahaf, I might be able to find you some work doing Bar Mitzvahs or birthday parties. Leave me your card and I'll get back to you.

Actually, my friends tell me I look more like his brother Certifiably Hussein.

So I hear that Saddam's doctor's called all of his body doubles together yesterday for a meeting. They said they had good news and bad news. The good news was that Saddam was alive. The bad news was that he lost an arm.
