    Not being flip, but it was a matter of time before some kid tried it...
    That sucks...

    Sounds like he copied him pretty well.

    Perhaps he should file suit against himself for being so stupid as to let his 10-year-old nephew watch it in the first place.

    I thought that, too, though I don't think they'll get anywhere.

    I mean, they didn't show the hanging.

    OK, I'm fed up with this stuff. If you raise a child to think it's OK to hang yourself "because they saw it on the tee-vee!" ... well, I'll let Starman finish my thought.

    Maybe. But it would tough for them to win, especially since they didn't show the hanging.

    Damn Iraqis should have had a "Kids, don't try this at home" disclaimer.

    Exactly. And I still maintain that any person of any age dumb enough to do something like that would simply find another way to hurt, maim or kill themselves if not the method they saw on TV.

    I mean, it's just senselessly tragic.

    Especially if you feel like I do, that the whole thing was designed to be shown on television.

    Not that the parents should sue, or anything. Just said all around.

    That would've been some funny stuff. Little line at the bottom of the screen: "Executions are carried out by professionals. No one should attempt them at home."

    No doubt it was. The Shiites/Shia ignored the entire civilized world, including The Great Saban. Er, Satan. Saddam basically was lynched.

    Anyway, that doesn't excuse this tragic result.
