‘Crows shall feed on Gordon Brown’s pancreas’

Ben Hammersley links to these two works of comedic genius: Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf’s new column in the Grauniad:

Earlier in the week I watched as joyous Iraqis celebrated our triumph by pulling down – with the help of defecting American soldiers – Baghdad’s only statue of actor Robert Donat as Mr Chips. I understand it was quite a good film, but we have no need of your imperialist icons now. Saddam has freed us from your oppressive rule, so we are saying goodbye to your Mr Chips. Ha! I have made myself laugh! I will not gloat further over this thrilling but predictable defeat which vindicates me so completely.

Also, a blog here. Brilliant.
