At a meeting of Presidents and Prime Ministers today in the town of Arrecife in Lanzarote, world leaders promised to come down hard on shoe-throwing and the causes of shoe-throwing.
Following the George Bush shoe incident, the Prime Minister Wen incident and the Israeli Envoy incident, all journalists and TV crews will from now have to leave their shoes at the door during press conferences.
"We think it best that we take these measures before someone gets really hurt", said a clearly nervous Bingu wa Mutharika, President of Malawi, a size 10 in brown brogues. Prime Minister Johanna Siguroardottir of Iceland (in black and white Jimmy Choos) echoed his thoughts.
All leaders are signing a worldwide agreement to come down heavy on shoe-throwers. But not Japanese whaling, pollution reduction, world poverty, Mugabe or anything that really matters.
