From the Too Stupid to Be True Department

That foot in mouth disease plagues the daffy dauphin, should come as no suprise, but this is too funny.

Recalling a White House meeting last spring with an Iraqi man who had both of his arms amputated by the regime of Saddam Hussein (news - web sites), the president said the man, who worked as a jeweller, was accused of illegal currency trading.

"And he had sold dinars on a particular day to buy another currency, euros or dollars, so he could buy gold to manufacture his product," Bush said.

"And because the Soviet dinar had devalued, Saddam Hussein plucked this guy out of society to punish him, and six other small merchants, for the devaluation of their currency. He just summarily said, you're it, come here -- and cut his hand off."

If you actually wrote this stuff and tried to sell it no one would buy it. Soviet Dinar, Ha freakin' Ha Ha.
