Shoes Thrown at Bush in High Demand

Muntazer al-ZaidiIt might not have been wise for Iraqi reporter/shoe-thrower Muntazer al-Zaidi to chuck his shoes at President Bush during a news conference in Iraq, but the manufacturer of those shoes, Ramazan Baydan, was sure glad he did.

According to the Daily Mail, the company had to staff up to meet the demands of the Model 271 shoes worn by al-Zaidi after his shoe-throwing incident.
