Sony rep: "Hey Suddam, our sales are a little low in the mid east. What do you say to buying a few thousand?"
Saddam: "No. I no need game playing machine."

Sony rep: "Hey! Just remember who supplied you with all the tools of destruction during Persian Gulf"

Saddam: "But we lost bad to American. And then YOU go make machine for American"

Sony rep: "Fine, no more bombs and missiles from Sony."

Saddam: "No, please, I can change I can change! I buy 1400 of them. OK to you?"

Sony rep: (in Burns voice) "Excellent

Smithers: "Uh sir, your pile of money is on fire"

Sony rep: "Ah yes, so it is. Oh well, looks like Squaresoft won\'t be getting their Christmas kickback this year"

Square Rep: "Mrmph hrph mrrp hrpmh"

Sony Rep: "What did you say? You\'re too far up my ass. I can\'thear you."

Smithers: "I believe he said he\'s much obliged, sir"

Why? Simple.

Iraq is banned from getting any high-tech hardware, but a "game platform" doesn\'t count. But we here all know how powerful the PS2 really is. It can do some serious calculations! So, they could strip the PS2\'s down and make new computer systems out of them, for many possible uses.

Or they could just be Christmas presents (in a Muslim country)...  :D

Funny quote from the report,
