This made my day.

“This is a farewell kiss, you dog!”

Man what I would have paid to see one of those size tens connect… Respect to Muntazer al-Zaidi for his guts, creativity, and accuracy with a thrown shoe. Did he plan it? Was it a spontaneous expression of disgust? Apparently this is one of the most insulting, not to mention hilarious, things you can do in the Arab world.


  1. update.
    bush has “no hard feelings” but Muntadar al-Zaidi was beaten at the scene (his shouts audible throughout the remainder of the press conference) and faces a possible 7-15 years in prison for attacking a visiting head of state. meanwhile a saudi businessman offers $10 million for the shoes.
