Were you one of those who shook their heads and wondered if they, unlike Al-Zaidi, coulda done one better and actually hit Bush?
Well, thanks to the internet and those who have nothing better to do, wonder no more! You can test those mad skillz of yours out here , here, here, here, AND here – and all from the comfort of your own home.
Personally I liked Sock and Awe, (the first link – 18,809,675 successful shoemacks when I was there) best. Not only is the name another pun (on Shock and Awe, the military strategy to oust Saddam Hussein) and you get to shoemack Bush, you also get to hear (the now infamous words) “this is your farewell kiss” every time you chuck it.
And, speaking of puns, thanks to the Egyptians, we now have have mock ‘headlines’
- U.S. occupation forces comb areas throughout Iraq in search of terrorist shoe factories.
- A man wearing a shoe-belt around his waist has been arrested by a U.S. patrol in Baghdad as a would-be shoe-icide bomber.
- Washington adds footwear to its terror list and passes a bill allowing wire taps on shoe stores and factories.
- Several international shoe manufacturers deny U.S. charges of aiding terrorist organizations.
- A top U.S. intelligence official, saying Zaidi’s shoes were made in Syria and Iran, calls for their invasion.
- Bush asks Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and his accompanying delegation to remove their shoes in the White House, and provides them with soft long-haired bunny slippers.
- An emergency Arab League meeting elects to shut down all shoe stores when Western officials visit.
- By presidential decree, Hosni Mubarak is now to hold all his press conferences inside mosques [where shoes are taken off outside].
A Saudi man offered to pay $10 million for the pair of shoes that an Iraqi journalist lunged at U.S. President George W. Bush, saying he considers the size 10s a “medal of freedom.”
Just came across this. Love it. Except for the big ears – I’ve never been big on making fun at physical features. It’s a low blow, that I don’t believe is productive – what point does it prove? None.
