Hung or Hanged

Late night I was watching the news (CNN) and some news guy was responding to viewer mail from a grammar nazi who points out that Saddam Hussein, if convicted, will be hanged rather than hung:

"You're absolutely right, he would be hanged. We don't know whether he's hung."

I nearly choked on my coffee. And they say TV is boring !

Liefs Coffee

The news can be very entertaining sometimes

Especially when they use automatic translators to translate the news or translate from a script and never see or hear what they are translating

My favourite news translation was from some voting in the British government (can't remember now what they call it). I didn't have the sound on and was only reading the subtitles. It was in Icelandic but if I translate it back to English it would say: Eyes to the left and noses to the right. Well... guess you had to be there (and maybe understand Icelandic) to see how funny that was

But you would be laughing if someone else who was maybe a bit more funny than I am would tell that joke

Judge I do not recognize your authority. I am innocent. I am the President of Iran. Whether he's hung or hanged, the SOB is fucked.

I figure he's suffering from some serious shrinkage right about now.

I suggest we room him with the female corporal who was the target of all those wonderful photo spreads from Iraq. Lindie, Lindsay... wtf was her name? Just give them a riding crop and a dog collar.

That drawn, quartered section was informative, and I'm sure neck-stretching will do no good

By the way, I read that he basically called for peace in iraq by accepting others.
