An eye for an eye, a noose for a noose

From today's Globe and Mail:
Baghdad — The person believed to have recorded Saddam Hussein's raucous execution on a cell phone camera was arrested Wednesday, an adviser to Iraq's prime minister said.
If found guilty, the man will be pulled apart by wild horses. His lawyer will only be smeared with honey and tied to an anthill. (And the whole thing will be on YouTube within hours.)

I like that Hussein's execution is described as "raucous." Maybe my experience is atypical, but I've managed to attend quite a few "raucous" gatherings where no one was hung by the neck.
