Saddam sightings.

Saddam sightings. SARS sightings. It's just like Elvis, right? But why use the tired "Elvis sighting" cliche (and trivialize his memory) when you could use Lord Lucan instead? Like this example from the BBC: [scroll to the Baghdad :: Andrew Gilligan :: 1016GMT entry]. Saddam Hussein has already been spotted in more places than Lord Lucan. He's been in the Russian embassy, he's been in the mosque this morning, he's alleged to be on a convoy to Syria - no doubt he'll soon be found on a sofa in Huddersfield.

Hee hee - that Lord Lucan site is fascinating. I always find myself secretly rooting for all those who've contrived to disappear, no matter what they've done - even Saddam, as long as he never turns up again. That's the cardinal rule, right?

Great post, TMWKMT - only Wally's missing. I'm sure a lot of other wallies enjoyed it too. Just leaving a little marker here to show it was appreciated.

Oh. I thought you were talking about Lucan the wolf-boy.

How come nobody talks about Judge Crater anymore?
