Iraqi Shoe Monument

iraq-shoeReally?  No, REALLY?  This monument was unveiled in Iraq to commemorate the journalist who threw both shoes at former President George W. Bush.  Throwing shoes is one of the worst insults that people of Arab cultures can offer, and even though he managed to dodge both of them, quite a statement was made. 

This one’s too easy.  Make your own jokes at home.
