Golly, who could have seen this coming

There are some people who expected something like this to happen.

And then there are, you know, dead people.

Now America, THAT's Where You Can Get a Good Hanging

U.S. Forces stated, rather Pilate-like, that they had no involvement in Saddam Hussein's execution- excluding, of course, the whole invasion, capture, three years' imprisonment, and direct handover to the Iraqis who did it stuff. But clearly that's minor; hand-washings abound.

However, despite the attempts to perform the execution in the most private and uncontroversial method possible, the hanging was attended by Saddam opponents who taunted the dictator as he fell, as seen in a video that was secretly taken and released in an act that surprised perhaps a handful of protozoae attached to coral fungus in the deepest part of the Marinas Trench.

This has apparently deeply upset the U.S. Military, who responded to the events this morning by indicating that if they were in charge of putting Saddam to death, they would have handled it much better.

And truly, that's all we're trying to do over there, isn't it. Whether building schools or hanging people in a more efficient method, America entered Iraq to improve the overall way of life.

Full details of just how much better the U.S. would have handled hanging someone than Iraq weren't provided, but I think it's so the ending isn't spoiled to the upcoming novel from Regan Publishing by Major General William Caldwell, "If I Did It, Here's How It Happened."

It's like the Big Dig of websites!

Oh, and like we didn't see this one coming. Yes, this is taking a lot longer than I thought. Instead of going another entire week without posting anything I feel like writing a few posts now that the blog software has been upgraded.

As for the design changes, they're the big stumbling blocks right now. I'm trying to ditch the old table-based site layout and go with better CSS options and you know what? I'm bored reading that so lord knows what you must think.

The goal now is to have a new, fancier-lookin' site by Monday to go with the new comic. I'll try to make a few posts between now and then, but most of my spare time I'd like to spend on getting the design stuff done.
