Saddam's Eating Habits

A recent article about Saddam’s eating habits:

It turns out Saddam is also quite picky in his food preferences. Saddam prefers Raisin Bran Crunch for breakfast, telling O'Shea, "No Froot Loops."

Is the man that depressed? I mean, he must have some major psychological problems if he prefers Raisin Bran over Froot Loops. Either that, or he’s having some digestion issues that I’m not aware of.

The article continues:
For a time his favorite snack was Cheetos, and when that ran out, Saddam would "get grumpy." One day, guards substituted Doritos corn chips, and Saddam forgot about Cheetos. "He'd eat a family size bag of Doritos in 10 minutes," Dawson said.

I’m not impressed. I can eat a family size bag of Doritos in a little under 5 minutes. If you gave me ten minutes, I could use the extra time to dip each Dorito into a jar of guacamole. Yes, I’m that quick. Saddam is just an amateur.

Raisin bran is good for him. If you are gonna be 'president-for-life', being full of ****, as you'd be from bran consumption, would not be a disability.

I have discovered the joys of Chocolate Lucky Charms. I am sure you will change the whole system of Communion once you have tatsed these.

Chocolate Luck Charms sound amazing. I wonder if they are still magically delicious, though.

I'm with jevanking ... I'm a Froot Loops consumer.

How does Saddam feel about snoballs from vending machines?

CHOCOLATE lucky charms? That's like awesome squared... I think I'll need to buy an indulgence if I want a bowl of those bad boys.

I think Saddam's up to something with the Raisin Bran angle... perhaps some daring escape plan that requires two scoops of raisins.

Your Holiness

At least he is no longer eating familes. Possibly, due to your influence.

Regards the breakfast controversy, I always figured he would eat anything, what with him being a cereal-killer.

I'm not a big fan of Froot Loops. Does that mean I'm depressed?

Your Holiness,

It's not good for a man to brag about being "quick." Not prudent. Not even for a Pope.

Your Phat holiness,
You have a very unique sense of humour! Thanks for blessing my blog, and may the appropriate deity (actually make that all of them) bless you too!

Pope,

This is quality stuff. I am offering a bookmark to the collection plate.

Would giving Saddam bran muffins for beakfast and sandpaper for toilet paper be considered torture under the Geneva Convention?

Do you find you need to hide your "snacks" / Doritos and guacamole now that you're living at the Vat? Terry

Some people just learn so slowly.

I bet Saddam would enjoy your vending machines at the Vatican.

you're both pretty impressive at comsuming doritos, but could you beat a writer or editor from "high-times magazine?"
