A few days ago, George Bush paid a farewell visit to Iraq. Some of you may remember some historic images of an elderly Iraqi man beating a statue of Saddam Hussein with his shoe – apparantly the ultimate insult in that part of the world.
Anyway, whilst Bush was standing at a podium with the Iraqi leader, some mad journalist whipped off his shoe and fired it at the American President. He missed. Or rather, Bush ducked – showing cat-like reflexes. The journalist then had time to take off his other shoe and have a second go but unfortunately missed again. Judging by the distance and pace at which they were thrown, it was clear this guy had been practicing. Had Bush not ducked, it would have hit him square in the face.
After that, about 200 body guards came in to the room and pinned the guy down. Now, he’s facing up to 15 years in prison for ‘attempted murder’ 🙄
Anyway, as you’d expect, there’s been tonnes of jokes and gags made out of this. Here’s some of my favourite;
- WoW style gamplay
- Matrix style
- Dodge Bullet Game
- Hit him with a shoe game
- Bush Captured
Unfortunately, Bush will probably never see any of these as he’s clearly not a technology enthusiast… 🙄
He is extremely well up on political affairs though as these videos clearly show….
Roll on Obama….
