Hilarious! Why stop the escalation in your post @ "a bottle or a rock"? Why not several of each, or some daggers?

It was just a shoe, I think he would have lived if he had been hit. A bloody nose is the least he deserves.

But honestly, hurling a shoe, was the greatest disrespect, although he stood for what he did, he meant physical harm, to a leader of a country.
I would say it'd be close to people claiming we should go to war!

I love this idea! The Order of the Golden Shoes! With Bronze, Silver & Gold Moccasin Clusters for hitting a 2nd, 3rd & 4th world leader!
Originally posted by dominuz Im also glad the man is ok and he could be released Personally i think the man should have reward medal or something because he dared to do what a country couldn't do in 8 years If more people out there could throw their shoes to their goverments this world will be definitively a better place
