Shoe throwing, Bush game

17Dec08

I knew it wouldn’t take long before someone viral marketed this game. This shoe throwing flash application-game has one objective: Hit Bush in the face with your shoe. Lebanon is currently the 11th country in the world that plays this game. I don’t know if the more people trow shoes at Bush is necessarily good for public relations, but it surely does get some steam out for many Arabs and those of the Islamic world.

On another note, an Egyptian man said on Wednesday he was offering his 20-year-old daughter in marriage to Iraqi journalist Muntazer al-Zaidi, who threw his shoes at U.S. President George W. Bush in Baghdad on Sunday.
