Is it Saddam or is it Memorex?
All of us arm chair soldiers get to play the game of guessing which reels are Saddam, which are recordings, and which are body doubles.
See, my belief is that sometime in the 80s, Saddam was drugged by one of his doubles, and that the doubles have been ruling the country ever since. When the US troops finally get into Baghdad, they will find a rail thin emaciated Saddam locked in a dungeon, and we will learn that the country has been ruled by evil imposter clones for the last several decades.
As for the coffee pot, I called the Cuisinart consumer line. They will be sending a new carafe in the mail. Wow, that is nice of them. Glass shards and coffee don't mix well.
