WHAT WOULD BUGS BUNNY DO? Something like this, perhaps:

Toy stores around Baghdad are doing a quick trade in dancing Saddam dolls — foot-high battery-powered puppets of the former president, kitted out in full insurgent regalia, who swing their hips to cheesy pop music at the flick of a switch.

Decked out with hand-grenades, daggers, a walkie-talkie, binoculars and an AK-47, Saddam dances to the “Hippy Hippy Shake” when turned on. . . .

At first it was the hip-shaking Osamas that sold best, but slowly Iraqis grew less fearful of ridiculing their deposed president and started buying the Saddam ones too.

Heh.
