Mr. Iraq

Don't you think for a 68-year-old man who has spent the last year-and-a-half languishing in a tiny prison cell Saddam looks awfully . . . buff? I get the impression that Juan Cole thinks so. Seeing as the American occupation has left everyone else in a state of near starvation, Saddam should run for the title of Mr. Iraq, the Iraqi body building champion. I'd say that rather than Mr. Hussein this is more like Mr. Photoshop (like this, or this, or, my favorite, this), except for the fact that it is probably not Saddam's real head either.
