Remember that giant shoe that used to be in Iraq?
The government ordered it gone.
A huge shoe sculpture honouring the Iraqi reporter who gained global fame by throwing his footwear at former US president George W. Bush has now been dismantled, an official told AFP.
"We have removed the shoe statue of Muntazer al-Zaidi, because we received an order to do so from the governor Salaheddin province," said Shaha al-Juburi, head of the children's foundation where the bronze sculpture had been erected.
The shoe - in which a bush was planted - stood three metres high and sat atop a white pedestal in Tikrit, the hometown of executed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.
Gosh! If you can't diss George Bush in Uncle Saddam's hometown, where can you do it? The post will serve to let the Left hyperventilate at will... Apparently the entire country didn't feel this way!
