Shoe throwing to be named Olympic event; Iraq favoured.

December 2, 2009

Normally, I try to avoid simply posting videos with no context or at least something witty or insightful to add. This clip however, in which the Iraq-shoe-thrower gets a wingtip-of-irony thrown at him is simply too good. (The perpetrator is an Iraqi Bush supporter. No, honestly. You can’t make this stuff up).

On top of this, the original thrower’s brother proceeds to then take his shoe off, exacting immediate karmic revenge on the apprehended fastidious footwear flinger.

Bonus points to the camera man and AP editor for ending the piece on an ominous close-up shot of a shoe.
