Otium cum dignitate.
All those little Hitlers at the UK airports making us remove our shoes. They are well in vista now.Brave man. I noted that he began by being 'interrogated' but is now being 'interviewed' according to our publicly funded broadcasting service.
I loved the idea that chucking your dusty sandals at POTUS "harmed the reputation of Iraqi journalists and Iraqi journalism in general". That would be the reputation created by whom? All those Iraqi Bernard Levins, Alastair Cookes and John Arlotts that we read so avidly?Having said that, my expensive shooting le Chameau wellies sprung a leak beyond repair at the weekend, and have been replaced online by a budget busting pair from the abattoir end of the range.I'm happy to come out in sympathy with ol' Munty and chuck my old wellies at Dubya at the next opportunity.
"Having said that, my expensive shooting le Chameau wellies sprung a leak beyond repair at the weekend,"Not shooting yourself in the foot Iders?I'll get my coat...
I expect he will be a mess if he ever gets released HG. He shouted "this is the end" as he threw his shoes. A very brave and exasperated man.Idle, my favorite footwear is my pair of neoprene lined Aigles...I wouldn't throw them, but I have a number of high heels I never wear anymore...Ouch Scrobs. But you don't need to get your coat....
Clearly:Heel be the life and Sole of the party (if he ever gets out!)Now I too will quietly toddle off with my knee length overgarment intact.
PS - pity he missed!
Lil, check out the Times cartoon today:http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/comment/cartoon/Spooky
He's got my vote.
RVI, yes tis a pity.Idle that IS spooky...Pip, likewise :-)
I've just read, on a Yahoo news item, that a man has offered his 20 yr old daughter to the man who threw the shoes.How nice to be considered an object of gratuity.
He made Bush look good.Honestly ! Blair, Brown, Bush - luck of the Devil.
