I've been giggling all morning about this story:
An Iraqi journalist has thrown his shoes at George W. Bush during the President's surprise visit to Baghdad.
The image of an impassioned newshound tossing his Size 10 Hush Puppies at the leader of the free world while yelling "It is the farewell kiss, you dog!" is surely one we'll see for weeks to come in humourous sketches and skits. Not to mention the fact that Dubya ducked as the leather missile came arcing towards him at speed. Oh, the hilarity.
So I'd like to be one of the first to open the floor for shoe-and-by-extension-foot-and-lower-leg jokes, puns, gags and witty bon-mots. Feel free to kick up your heels, get your foot in the door, and forget about toeing the party line.
Let's have some pun!
