Took a nice tour of the Saddam Hussein School of the Arts. What a fine institution full of talented artists! I never ceased to be amazed by the love and devotion the Iraqi people have for their Supreme Leader...every single student at the school was either painting or sculpting a portrait of Saddam. Do Americans have this much love and respect for Dumbya? I think not!
There was one student who tried to break away from the norm and paint a landscape ala Bob Ross. A couple of beret-wearing gentleman escorted him from the premises. Shortly afterwards, there came a couple of loud reports from outside, which startled myself and the group. But our guide, Al-Shariq, reassured us that it was probably just firecrackers, what with Chinese New Year and all.
Still no sign of Alvin and Mabel. I sure hope they don't miss the bath party.
