I will bet that Baghdad Bob and Sadam Hussein's cards will be as valuable as....well, let's leave it up to EBay. Wonder how long before they show up...

So when special forces call in a kill it's like "Fox base, this is Pikachu, the ace of clubs is in our hand."

Cool stuff.

"There are jokers in this deck, there is no doubt about that," Brooks said.

HAHAHAHAH....oh that was SOOO funny. You truly missed your calling in life, you hack.

Can I buy them on ebay?
2003-04-11 12:07:37 PM  
What happened to the good old days when soldiers were men and played cards with naked chicks on them???
2003-04-11 12:07:51 PM  
KID#1: I'll trade you my double of Baghdad Bob for Chemical Ali and Tarik Aziz.

KID#2: No way, Ali is dead, so his value is up and Aziz is the only Christian in Sadaam's regieme. That's rare.

KID#1: Ok, ok. But can I have you gum?

Still waiting for a Martha Burke-Hootie Johnson flamewar...
2003-04-11 12:08:52 PM  
So far they haven't had much luck killing the head honchos, but their record in killing young children can't be beat.
2003-04-11 12:09:43 PM  
A game of war anyone
2003-04-11 12:13:01 PM  
So if you have Saddam, Bagdad Bob, and just three plain old Republican Guards, Is that a Full Bunker, or just a pair ? And what combo would be a Royal Flush ? Saddam, both sons, and his daughters ?
2003-04-11 12:13:10 PM  
I know the best game to play with these cards...

2003-04-11 12:13:11 PM  
This is the one time I'd rather stick the real guy's head in my bicycle spokes instead of just his sports card. :)
2003-04-11 12:14:06 PM  

Apparently he tried to escape disguised in a British uniform and was promptly shot by the US Marines.

"Do you have any Chemical Alis?"

"Go fish."
2003-04-11 12:24:24 PM  
Willie: Do you have Baghdad Bob?
Joe: Go fish!
2003-04-11 12:25:29 PM  
Aces and eights.
2003-04-11 12:25:54 PM  
it never ceases to amaze me how, not only do people think of the exact same thing (somtimes pretty obscure too) but they seem to get around to posting it about the same time.

2003-04-11 12:27:15 PM  
The Information Minister must be one of the jokers, 'cause all the farked-up bullshiat he spews is awfully funny.

Seriously though, are the "Queens" in the deck the gay Iraqi leaders?
2003-04-11 12:29:54 PM  
OK, while they arn't playing cards, I have the entire "Desert Storm" trading card set boxed away in my closet. They're in pretty darn good shape too. Wonder what those will get me on ebay?

2003-04-11 12:30:29 PM  
cool idea, gives the fightin guys something to do and faces to memorize, not to mention when they come back, big bucks on ebay...
2003-04-11 12:34:02 PM

Does Saddam rain Weapons of Mass Destruction down on your opponent when you tap him?

I am such a nerd.
2003-04-11 12:45:04 PM

thank you, thank you

I have a show at 7 and 9 at the Comedy Barn on Troost...

The playing cards idea is a not-so-subtle Masonic signal. Modern playing cards are all based on sets of Tarot cards, which of course were used for divination and fortune-telling. By depicting Iraqi former-leaders on cards, the Masonic-controlled military apparatus is demonstrating their control over the destinies of these people and nations.

2003-04-11 12:57:01 PM  
Lots of those Iraqi guys look pretty similar to me, I hope they don't get the wrong guy.

Then again we Americans probably look the same to them.
2003-04-11 12:57:54 PM  
Githerax...say what?
2003-04-11 12:59:09 PM  
fark, when did my country start acting like the mob? Putting out hit list card decks sounds like something you would find in a bad gangster movie.
2003-04-11 01:00:13 PM  
So what is there going to be a new card game by wizards of the coast...

"I will tap Uday Hussein and kill your Iraqi Olympic Hopeful."

Dirty: The Iran-Iraq war ended up more or less in a tie. Or maybe both sides lost. (Sort of like the War of 1812 -- the USA technically got what it asked for but it was hardly a stunning victory. Meanwhile, Britain got beat up but didn't lose anything important.)
2003-04-11 01:10:18 PM  
"Got a Chemical Warhead?"
"Go Fish!"
2003-04-11 01:11:03 PM  
Ach! Bondith beat me to it.

/got nothing
2003-04-11 01:11:30 PM  
52 Pickup anyone?
2003-04-11 01:18:24 PM  
Wide angle shot of the jubilant throngs of people tearing down the Saddam statue.

Huge gathering, huh?
2003-04-11 01:19:42 PM  
I just can't get this thing posted.

go here
2003-04-11 01:24:32 PM  
These decks will become the number one souvineer of this war. Watch for them on eBay.
2003-04-11 01:26:50 PM  
My brains are rotting from too much interwebbing.
How can I misspell a simple French verb? "Souvenir"
