Here's Looking at Shoe - Part 2

Remember Muntadar al-Zaidi? No? Ok. Remember that Iraqi journalist who threw his shoe at President Bush during a press conference in December? Yeah. Now you got it.

Well, apparently, when he hurled his size 10 shoe at W, he shouted, "This is for the orphans and widows!" As a result, an orphanage in Tikrit, Iraq has erected a six-foot bronze statue of a shoe in honor of the jailed, presumably one-shoed, journalist.

Meanwhile, Muntadar al-Zaidi is still in jail. He did recently celebrate his 30th birthday, however. But instead of birthday cake and candles, he more than likely had a car battery connected to his genitals, while being waterboarded.
