Another Shoe; Another Missed!

When the Iraqi journalist threw his shoes at then US president George W. Bush in Baghdad in December, he became a hero worldwide. Well, you know what they say about the highest form of flattery in the world.

A young Western protester did just that when he hurled a shoe at Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao at Britain's Cambridge University. Like the Iraqi journalist, Muntazer al-Zaidi, he missed! I’m not sure what the man was protesting about, but here’s a suggestion for the next guy who want to throw his shoes at a world leader. PRACTICE FIRST!

It’s embarrassing! How many chances do protesters need before hitting someone with a shoe? Since it’s so difficult to aim with shoes, practice is essential. It’s vital even! Practice make prefect. Shoe throwing should be made a discipline for all protesters in the future. Come on, global fame awaits the first guy to hit a world leader with his shoes!
