GW Bush Shoed in Iraq

Last week we heard about the shoe-throwing incident from Iraq starring none other than exiting US President George W. Bush.

'Bush ducked, and the shoes, flung one at a time, sailed past his head during the news conference with Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki in his palace in the heavily fortified Green Zone.
The shoe-thrower -- identified as Muntadhar al-Zaidi, an Iraqi journalist with Egypt-based al-Baghdadia television network -- could be heard yelling in Arabic: "This is a farewell ... you dog!"
While pinned on the ground by security personnel, he screamed: "You killed the Iraqis!"
Al-Zaidi was dragged away. While al-Zaidi was still screaming in another room, Bush said: "That was a size 10 shoe he threw at me, you may want to know." '

Though he called that episode one of the 'weirdest' moments of his presidency. It had become a kind of amusement for a lot people. An online game was even created. Sock and Awe was hastily created by Alex Tew over some beer and pizza. The objective of the game is easy: Hit President Bush in the face with your shoes! The game has even become a surprise hit, with 61,315,642 shoes succesfully hit President Bush.
