image for Shoe Bubble Boosts World Economy: Obama Names al-Zaida Wingtips Tsar
S-Hoes marches toward a new economic tap dance of a big bountiful bubble!

Economic bursts,booms,bubble and busts are as unpredictable as George Bush's grammar and Obama's idea of liberalism. US investment experts sell trillions of dollars of stock portfolios made of helium and, go figure, the world economy does an Hindenburg.

Now the recession appears to be over and a new boom is bubbling to unprecedented heights. An Iraqi reporter takes off his wingtips at another boring press conference because his dogs hurt from hoofing it all over Baghdad trying not to report on what a mess his city and country is still in. A surprise guest, the real butcher of Baghdad and the annihilator of Iraq, George W shows up. In a moment of frustrated madness Muntanza al-Zaida wings his wingtips at W.

He gets the shit kicked out of him by other people's shoes and is dragged off to prison barefoot and pregnant with an ingenious idea: S-Hoes.com. The website has sold trillions of dollars in advertising and has directed those dollars to reviving the world economy. The premise of the online arcade is that an enrollee can buy all manner of footwear, hiss and then throw them at investment hoes, celebrities, dictators and warmongers. Between ads, the insatiable desire to throw virtual shoes at the real life images of the world's villains and al-Zaida's generous contribution of all profits to a global bailout, the recession is over and a new bubble is lifting the world economy to even greater heights of prosperity.
