Zaidi’s shoe: “This is a farewell kiss, you dog”
By Divas 😀 😀 😀
I’ve been laughing my ass off after hearing the news of George Bush being shoe-ed off by an Iraqi journalist Muntadhar al-Zaidi. The incident might have caused worries to Western, especially the American & European security specialists, with the fact that what if Muntadhar had taken out a gun instead of the shoe and bang bang the president. However, people on this part of the world seem to be sharing their culture more with the Iraqis this time than with the Westerners. For we all know that nothing, not even a deadly M-16, could have replaced Muntadhar’s shoe to express his contempt against the “War on Terror” crusader – the filthy Mr. Bush.
BTW, what is happening to these American Presidents! Billy Clinton fucked his intern & later refused to recognize “that woman”. Father & Son Bushes fucked civilians for Saddam & Bin Laden & called it their crusade. God knows, if he’s there, who Mr. Obama gonna fuck & yell to the world that he didn’t do that.
China’s news agency the Xinhuanet reports that, the Iraqi reporter of Baghdadiya television jumped and threw his two shoes one by one at although a “lame” one but still the world’s most powerful President of America. But alas. . . unfortunately Prez Bush’s baseball skills came handy & he ducked to “narrowly miss being struck”.
A BBC report on the incident comments that in Arab culture, the greatest offence you can incur on your opponent is to say, “I’m going to thump you with a shoe”. In our part of the world too, the greatest expression of contempt toward someone is not to kill him, but to hit him with a really worn out & stinking shoe. Another locally popular medical emergency use for a foul smelling putrid shoe is to make sure that the victim of epilepsy fits takes a deep smell from the rotting shoe & gets back to normalcy.
Apart from the Iraqis & Arabs themselves, the Indians & the Pakistanis must have enjoyed Muntadhar’s daring shoe-ing act. Nepalis too have their own indigenous method for treating the sociopaths & corrupts. People enjoy showing & beating social trespassers with a tattered shoe, put a garland made of shoes, smear ashes on the face, shave at four places on the head, & take a skimpy ride around the thoroughfares. This Nepali indigenous method of correcting the social ills is called Charpate Mudnu – and it’s a very effective measure among the villagers.
Let the Westerners know that even Nepal’s Constitution Assembly acknowledges the use of shoe as a natural expression of contempt. A woman Assembly member recently took off her chappal (sandal) during the Constitution Assembly meet & slapped her chappal on a man whom she claimed was her husband’s murderer – but an Assembly member by the law. And we the fans of Bollywood flicks know what it means when Kader Khan warns you with “joota sunghana” to get you back to normalcy from your fancy imaginations.
Hence, despite all my fake pretensions of good manners, I must say that I really enjoyed Mr. Bush getting his farewell bid with the shoe-ing. I’d even suggest the extremists of all flavors to give up mindless violence & adopt a more effective method of shoe-ing attacks. I’m sure most of the Indians too would have welcomed had the jihadists, instead of attacking innocent commoners in Mumbai Taj Mahal Hotel, given a good shoe thrashing to the cunning war-mongering politicians.
Hey Mr. Bush, here comes my long distance farewell kiss. Wanna Duck it?. . .
& Mr. Bush Ducks it… smart fella! 😀
