The shoe throw: a video still from APTN
Ah, George W., you're so adept at dodging journalist questions. Well, can you outsmart a shoe? Well, actually, yes - twice - from 20 feet away.
If you were asleep or away from the computer yesterday here's the video of Al-Baghdadia television correspondent Muntadar al-Zeidi saying his goodbyes to the U.S.
Technically he shouted: "This is a farewell kiss, you dog!" in Arabic before being tackled.
It still doesn't explain all the shoes dangling from overhead cables.
