ATP According to reports pouring in women all over the world have shown great interest in the news coming out of Iraq about shoes being thrown on George W Bush.
According to the woman on the street,Carrie, Manolos are the shoe of choice these days for everyone from celebrities to Iraqi journalists. It can now be told that the reason the George Bush took quick evasive action was because Laura had been wanting a pair for some time and George W, recognising a free shoe opportunity did not want to damage them with his thick head. Such are the emotions that Manolo Blahnik shoes inspire.
According the new Secretary of state to be Hillary Clinton, the Iraqi journalist exhibited very poor judgement. Hillary opined that Ugg boots would have been a better choice, 'they are heavier, more durable and acquire better momentum when thrown. I believe that the journalist could have presented them to me when I negotiate the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq."
Our correspondents in Washington have informed us that Condi Rice is privately seething at this incident. "The shoes thrown at our President were from the latest Neiman Marcus catalogue and I had my eye on them for a while. What a tragic waste."
The spokesperson for Manolos have refused to comment on the incident, merely stating that they were happy that Manalos were now retailing in Iraq.
