Who knew the Iraqis were so funny?
Instead of building a shrine to W, who likens himself to a liberator of some sort, the people of Iraq have erected another shrine to W in Tikrit.
That's right. A shoe. With a shrub in it. A plastic shrub.
Dear baby Jeebus, I do loves me some symbolism.
You cannot make this stuff up, I tell you.
The ShoeBush is to honor Muntazer al-Zaidi, the journalist who hurled the Hushpuppy at W. The inscription on his monument reads: "Muntazer: fasting until the sword breaks its fast with blood; silent until our mouths speak the truth."
