Saddam Hussein forced to watch South Park movie by US Marines

The creators of South Park have revealed they were given a signed photo of Saddam Hussein after the toppled Iraqi leader was shown their movie in prison.

During his captivity, US marines forced Saddam to repeatedly watch the movie South Park: Bigger, Longer And Uncut, which shows him as gay, and enjoying sex with the devil.

The admission comes as they look back at the show's high-lights ahead of celebrating its 12th birthday this month.

Stone, 37, and college pal Trey Parker, 39, started South Park with just a handful of fart gags but it has gone on to become a global phenonomon to rival The Simpsons.

Recently they have taken a swipe at Tom Cruise for being gay and shown Barack Obama using his Presidential victory as a way to steal jewels from Washington.

And the schoolkids have lost none of their innocence, last season Cartman contracted Aids only to find nobody cares about the disease anymore.

But Matt said they're most proud of the signed Saddam photo, given to them by the US Army's 4th Infantry Division.

He said: "We're very proud of our signed Saddam picture and what it means. Its one of our biggest high-lights.

"I have it on pretty good information from the marines on detail in Iraq that they showed Sadam the movie.

"Over and over again - which is a pretty funny thought.

"That's really adding insult to injury."
