    "In an age of spin, al-Sahaf offers feeling and authenticity. His message is consistent -- unshakeable, in fact, no matter the evidence -- but he commands daily attention by his on-the-spot, invective-rich variations on the theme. His lunatic counterfactual art is more appealing than the banal awfulness of the Reliable Sources. He is a Method actor in a production that will close in a couple of days. He stands superior to truth."

    Nothing to do with cephs but had to share the link :)

    Sorry!

    The Iraqi minister has unlimited comedy potential, you must admit!

    LOLOL at the pics (really wish i had thought of that)


    I really do agree that the potential for comedy is huge!

    In fact, one of my work mates has now been dubbed 'the information minister' due to tendency to stray somewhat from the facts. I have never met another person that can see the same thing I did and take such a different view of it... and everytime the story is re-told how cartain things wander and meander from what actually happened!

    Hello!

    Back again, after a long break...

    Here's my version, using a different image.

    "As you can see, Saddam keeps nothing but harmless litle fishies in his private aquarium."

    That was hilarious! Together with Amniotes and Whitekiboko's pictures we may have enough now to start a new 'Iraqi Minister of Cephalopod Information' forum. :thumbsup:

    Right on. At the very least, the title "Minister of Cephalopod Information" should be incorporated in the TONMO ranking system.

    quite amusing.... i probably wouldve ended up giving kat a moustache too... what about the minister recounting the demise of the Nautilus, and Ned Land commiting suicide on his harpoon out of fear of the Giant Squid? 20k leagues under the sea anyone? :)
