MEXICO CITY (Reuters) -Saddam Hussein,Osama bin Laden and Mother Teresa are being deployed as behaviour cops in posters in the car-clogged streets of Mexico City in a campaign to stamp out bad driving, corruption and aggression.Well, that's just fucking weird. I know things are always a bit different in Mexico but that's wacky even for them. I just don't get it. I think it's kind of funny but yeah, I don't get it. I can understand Mother Teresa. Mexico is very Catholic and Mother Teresa would care about the well-being of drivers. Saddam looks like every 50 year old Mexican guy I know. He even has the same mustache. Osama could easily be mistaken for a Mexican Santa Claus. If anybody has any pictures of these posters, can you send them to me at email@example.com? I've been looking for them but I haven't found them yet. Thanks.
The unlikely combo -- who may soon be joined by George W. Bush and Adolf Hitler -- appear on the posters across the city with speech bubbles telling drivers to stop paying off traffic police with bribes or parking where they shouldn't.
"For devil's sake, don't give bribes," declares a beaming image of Mother Teresa on an advertisement hoarding.
A few streets away a grave-looking Saddam warns: "Don't double-park, you could cause chaos!" while bin Laden advises pedestrians to use footbridges to cross busy roads because, he says: "I'm concerned for your life."
