***Okay, now that's tacky: Rope used in Saddam Hussein's hanging up for auction. He was an evil man and the world is better off without him, but why in the world would you want THAT?
The rope used to hang ousted Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein is up for auction and could sell for as much as $7 million.
Ex-Prime Minister Mowaffak Al-Rubaie has put the rope up for sale more than eight years after the execution in 2006, The New York Post reported Friday.
An unidentified senior Iraqi political official told the Middle East news site Al-Araby al-Jadeed that several individuals from Israel, Iran and Kuwait have made offers on the rope.
