Shoe throwing a trend?

An Iraqi journalist stood up and shouted, "This is a goodbye kiss, you dog," at the U.S President before he hurled his shoes at him this morning.

You can watch it at BBC website:

Now, there might be 2 trends surging after this:

1) After today, those who are attending press conferences in a confined room with the U.S President will be required to be barefooted.

2) There will be a surging trend among protesters to throw shoes at their unpopular politicians. MalaysiaKini and Malaysia Today might want to consider encouraging their journalists to wear boots.
