Saddam’s Bronze Buttock for Sale

Saddam Hussein’s bronze buttock is finally going up for auction! The relic, which broke off a statue of the former Iraqi dictator during the 2003 invasion led by the U.S., has for the past eight years been cared for by a former British soldier who’d been working with reporters in Baghdad at the time of the invasion. An auctioneer expects the buttock to sell for at least £10,000 (about $15,500) at a British auction house later this month.
