Welcome to my first ever double-post day. I just wanted to comment on President Bush’s being hit by a shoe in Iraq. Apparently this is the worst possible insult an Iraqi can give–so bad they wouldn’t air it on Iraqi TV. I was just wondering, what would the American equivalency of shoe-throwing be? Sticking your tongue out? Too childish. Flipping him off? Too MTV. Spitting? Too “Flavor of Love.” (that’s a link worth clicking on).
I think the American equivalency would be–ready for this?–the all-powerful, undeniably offensive, all-American BA. Yes, it takes an American bottom waggling in the air to reproduce the gravity of a shoe being thrown in Iraq.
If you want a chance to throw shoes at the president yourself, spend a few minutes playing this game.
