Saddam Gets Last Laugh: Contextual Advertising


There were certainly things Saddam Hussein did many would say justified his recent hanging but it's Saddam who's left us with the last word. In that blather of pontification he shared with us prior to his neck being broken, some say he uttered the words "beware of the contextual advertising." As if to deliver on that warning from the afterlife, next to a video of Saddam's death appears an ad for another famed dictator, Idi Amin...or rather Forrest Whitaker playing Idi Amin in his new movie, The Last King of Scotland.
