back to article Saddam 'double' kidnapped by smut flick gang

Muammar Gaddafi lookalikes are well advised to stay cautious in public if the recent experiences of a doppelganger for Saddam Hussein are any guide. Mohamed Bishr was walking to a cafe in the Egyptian city of Alexandria when a group of three armed men forced him into the back of a van. He was beaten by the brigands, who sought …

      "Bishr, a devout Muslim,"

      Would you let your appearance define who you are? I'd hope to have this mans strengths to stand behind my own principles.

        I know - he shouldn't have to change his appearance, and it may be that his facial structure is just too similar to make much of a difference anyway. I fully applaud him standing by his beliefs and principles - that shows a substantial level of integrity.

        Doesn't quite make the same soundbite quip though, does it? :)

      what i was thinking.

      How's that going to help?

      Or was Saddam a fan of the full brazilian?

      Maybe it really is him

      and they hanged the look-alike.

      I dunno about shaving

      but he should defiantly stop wearing the Iraqi military outfit.

      Maybe not a shave..?

      Perhaps grow a neatly-trimmed beard. Certainly not the 'wildman' beard that Saddam was wearing when captured.

    I dont get it...

    OK wanting him to make a video or something for them to make money by passing it off to the media...but why porn? Even more so to go to the effort of kidnapping the guy... Completely baffles me :S

    1. Lamont Cranston

      I agree.

      There's no money to be made in the porn business.

      Why porn?

      Because it would be an instant debasement of Saddam Hussein in the eyes of the Muslim world. There's power to be had in destroying Saddam's memory, and that would do the job nicely. Nobody really cares much in the West if someone's videotaped shagging, but in Arab and Persian countries it's very, very different.

        Re: Why porn?

        Indeed. He can think his luck that a) they were not persistent to the point of using torture and b) that they hadn't lined up a bestiality/gay/necrophiliac/paedophiliac (add an idea here________) flick for his participation

          Necrophilia....I think we can guess the corpse.

          Actually, that's Rule 35. Read the article again.

    What is the world cumming to?

    1. LaeMing

      Not Saddam porn, apparently.

      For the moment at least.

    "Forced" ???

    Sounds like a terrible fate. Usually, the women in these films are carefully selected for their visual attributes. My sympathies to the gentleman involved for having to endure this terrible fate.

    Come to think of it, I havent seen our local look-a-like for a few days, I just assumed his taxi was in for repairs but now.............

    Missing element of the article

    *blindfold comes off*

    "You want me to do it with her?! She's a total minger!"

    "You beardy bastard, that's my mum you're talking about!"

    Oh, and a memo to Rory Bremner: be very worried if anyone dies. Absolutely anyone.

    So does that mean we should be looking for G.W. Bush porn, Tony Blair porn or even some Thatcher porn ?

    I've been to Egypt...

    ...and there is definitely no shortage of men that look like Saddam Hussein. This bloke must be a really good lookalike.
