From BBC News: Shoes thrown at Bush on Iraq trip
A surprise visit by US President George Bush to Iraq has been overshadowed by an incident in which two shoes were thrown at him during a news conference. . . .

In the middle of the news conference with Mr Maliki, [an Iraqi television journalist] stood up and shouted "this is a goodbye kiss from the Iraqi people, dog," before hurling a shoe at Mr Bush which narrowly missed him.
"This is a goodbye kiss from the Iraqi people, dog"? Since when was Randy Jackson an Iraqi television journalist?

Rather than comment extensively on this story, which I'm sure several million other bloggers will be taking care of, I will now provide you with a series of shoe-related puns — because I know stupid wordplay is the only reason most of my readers keep coming back:

What a shocker — he even told the security guy he was planning to attack Bush, and they STILETTO him in!

I guess Iraq is just ready to give Bush the BOOT!

Bush told reporters he was disappointed at the Iraqi journalist's display of haTREAD!

Maybe the guy was trying to perSUEDE Bush that the Iraq invasion was a mistake!

This sort of behaviour is completely unacceptable — the Iraqi press corps really need to TOE the line!

After ducking the shoe, Bush just shook his head at the journalist and said, "MULE regret this!"

It's weird that Bush got a shoe thrown at him; I thought Kerry was the FLIP-FLOPper!

And...

After the attack, Bush said he was appalled at the journalist's INSOLEnce!

Wah-wah.

I wonder if the shoe-thrower has become his ARCH nemesis?

I need to stop hanging out with you...
