Three Throws For $5.00 !!

This video needs some music, and perhaps a song. Next summer I hope some enterprising sort makes up a carnival game where you can throw a shoe to dunk a guy wearing a Bush mask into a water tank, I'd pay to do that.



Apparently in the Middle East it is the ultimate insult to hit somebody with a shoe and call him a dog (which is what the reporter shouted). I fear the symbolism may be lost on most Americans. So let's all think up a Western version -what would you like to throw at the President? Keep it nice- we don't want any more visits from the Secret service...

I would like to throw snow balls at him. But not just any snow balls. Us gals when younger, we were some mean bitches and just a year or so out from liking boys, again. They little scum bags dared us to a snow ball fight the next day. Well boys never prepare ahead of time and girls are evil. So the night before we made up about 200 snow balls, sprinkled them with water and let set over night.

They wanted to take us on up in the tree house putting on on the ground. They were not prepared. In fact after we had a slide prepared to slide down the hill to behind the pool to run up grab more snow balls (now fozen balls of ice) and repeat this process with 6 girls. One went home with a bloody nose, one with a black eye, rest went home crying afraid.

So, since he is never prepared for a damn thing...he needs his assed kicked by a bunch of 12 year old girls in a snow ball fight...old school.

Challenge at my crib...you are another great candidate...so go over and get to work...or else....I'll have to shake you up with some ice!

Still watchign that video and giggling. Man...to be a fly on that wall!

Oh, WHAT would I throw? Bad eggs? Blood (gross, but apt)?

I don't think that the symbolism is lost on most Americans. My NPR station did a good job of explaining that throwing shoes is the highest insult in Iraqi culture; I got it, and I think it's entirely appropriate that someone should be lobbing footwear at the jerk.

MI: Great story! I'll be right over...

Mrs.Chili: Our NPR station explained it as well- now, if only most Americans listened to NPR (but if they did, we wouldn't just have undergone eight years of King George, I suppose).

Funny how the guy had time to throw one shoe, take off another and throw it. Almost seems like no one wated to do much of anything.

I heard the Yankees just signed him too.

Colonel Colonel said...

Beach: It did seem that a lot of the folks in that room were more amused than upset, didn't it?

Malach: hey, the Yankers just signed my cat as a relief pitcher.

The biggest insult I can think of is to call him a son of a Bush.
