The Cobbler and the Shoe Assassin

Recently an Iraqi journalist threw one shoe, followed by the other, at former US President George Bush during a press conference. Bush executed a deft sidestep, a well-practiced response to unexpected issues at this late stage in his presidency.

The Turkish company that makes the projectile shoes has subsequently experienced a 4-fold increase in orders and plans to hire 100 new staff. Isn't it nice to see that the President can still create jobs?

It makes you wonder if the whole incident was orchestrated by the company's sales department to meet end-of-year targets.
