Just when you’d stopped screaming yourself to sleep at night over UNICEF’s Smurf Guernica, along comes this charming Mexico City ad campaign:

Saddam and seven senior members of his regime go on trial Wednesday to face charges they ordered the killings of nearly 150 people following a failed attempt on Saddam’s life.

There’s also finger-waggling Osama admonishing jaywalkers to use footbridges (in case it weren’t hard enough already keeping the youths off modeling glue).  The mind boggles.
