George Bush gave a surprise news conference in Iraq today and was greeted by the size 10 shoes of an Iraqi reporter. It’s really important to know that the shoes were a size 10!
Bush dodged that shit before security came out and took the shoe thrower down. Bloomberg says that in Arab culture, throwing shoes is a sign of disrespect. Before being taken away, the shoe thrower shouted, “This is a farewell kiss, dog.”
After the shoe almost hit the Bush, the president told reporters, “I’m OK. “It doesn’t bother me. So what if he threw a shoe at me. All I can report is it is a size 10.”
I’m surprised Dubya didn’t catch the shoe and throw it back thinking the dude was playing a game of Hot Potato with him. You know Dubya loves a good game of Hot Potato!
