Saddam Hussein Named Jockey Briefs Celebrity Spokesperson

In an unlikely marketing move, Brent Murphy, chief elastic waistband tester for Jockey Briefs Worldwide, has been promoted to All-Time Exalted Underpants Ruler of the Universe, according to information just released from Jockey's Wisconsin focus group facility in Milwaukee.

His recent surprise product placement of Jockey's Old Guy briefs on deposed dictator Saddam Hussein led to a shakeup among upper management in this midwestern mecca for bun warmers.

"I spend my time helping people cover their ass, so I just thought covering Saddam's butt would just be a natural extension of what I already do," claimed the inventive employee, whose previous experience includes putting panties on naked statues for former attorney general John Ashcroft. His new assignment gives him the key to executive washroom.

Timed for the release of the latest and hopefully last Star Wars movie, Revenge of the Sith, the Saddam Hussein Jockey briefs launch has put the world on notice that prisons offer marketers a hitherto untapped resource for new campaign ideas.

In other news, AOL journals editor and commander in chief of the weekly Editors' Picks, some guy named Joe, took six days to write two entries in his new blog, which doesn't seem to serve any useful purpose. John Scalzi he ain't.

I gotta say this. Your rough drafts are funnier than most anything else out here.

It's BAAAACK. Someone must have turned your sense of humor into the AOL Lost and Found. Thank God.

I just figured the Saddam pics were part of a new Benetton ad campaign.
