Shoes traced out

Got this interesting email(joke) today:

The pair of shoes which was thrown at Mr. Bush in Iraq has links to Pakistan, said a statement from Pentagon. They have the following proofs:

  1. The journalist had visited Pakistan earlier this year. There he was inspired by the shoe throwing at former CM Arbab Ghulam Rahim and Sher Afghan Niazi.
  2. He received his training of throwing shoes by a Pakistan based Jihadi organization.
  3. The DNA sample of leather has revealed that the animal whose skin was used for manufacturing the shoe had traces of grass which is grown in North of Pakistan and this skin was collected by a Jihadi organization on Eid-ul-Adha this month.

Hearing this, President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani have decided to ban the Jihadi organization and launched a country wide crackdown against all the cobblers in Pakistan.

Since his first presidential election, Bush has always remained in the news and to top on that his farewell is no different. Following the shoe-throwing incident, people round the world are sharing videos, flash-games, emails, joke, etc on this very topic to make Bush’s farewell a memorable one.

Bush’s Farewell

George W. Bush on his farewell visit to Iraq was not received warmly by everyone. Muntadar al-Zeidi, a correspondent for Al-Baghdadia television, greeted Bush by firing two shoes at him which, unfortunately for him, didn’t hit the target.

Here is that brave young man presenting the gift and shouting out loud “This is a farewell kiss, dog”
