WTF? Seriously, WTF ?

Saddam Hussein Had Qur'an Written in His Blood

It took three years and 57 pints of his own blood for Saddam Hussein to have a special copy of the Qur'an printed, and today, no one in Iraq knows exactly what to do with it.
 
Saddam commissioned the work on his 60th birthday in April 1997 and took possession of the completed product in September 2000. "My life has been full of dangers in which I should have lost a lot of blood," he explained, "but since I have bled only a little, I asked somebody to write God's words with my blood in gratitude."
 
The blood-inscribed 605-page holy book now sits locked away in a Baghdad mosque.
