South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone say they were sent a signed photo of Saddam Hussein, after the the deposed Iraqi dictator was shown their film South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut, in jail. The movie depicts him as the boyfriend of Satan:

Stone, 37, said both he and Parker, 39, were most proud of the signed Saddam photo, given to them by the US Army's 4th Infantry Division.

He said: "We're very proud of our signed Saddam picture and what it means. Its one of our biggest highlights.

Stone, 37, said both he and Parker, 39, were most proud of the signed Saddam photo, given to them by the US Army’s 4th Infantry Division.

He said: “We’re very proud of our signed Saddam picture and what it means. Its one of our biggest highlights.

“I have it on pretty good information from the marines on detail in Iraq that they showed Saddam the movie.

“Over and over again – which is a pretty funny thought.

“That’s really adding insult to injury.”
