I haven't seen "The Book of Mormon" yet, but I think this reader, or perhaps his human rights lawyer girlfriend, had either his geography or his warlords confused. Unless I'm mistaken, there is no General Butt-Fucking Naked in Northern Uganda. There is, however, a General Butt Naked (real name Joshua Blahyi) who was a notorious warlord in the civil war in Liberia in the 1990s.

He got his name because he would go into battle naked. He was featured extensively in the excellent (if you like their style) Vice Guide to Liberia, where he describes how his soldiers would kill an innocent child and drink the blood before going into battle. There is also a new documentary about him that was shown at Sundance this year.

The General has mainly attracted interest due to his transformation from brutal warlord to his current incarnation of Christian evangelist. Fascinating character, to be sure.
