Did you know that shoes can be used as a serious weapon, capable of taking out a world leader? Nope, neither did I. That is, until I came across this footage in my morning newsfeed. During a surprise visit to Iraq, President George Bush met with an irate journalist who decided to take off his shoes and hurtle them at him at a press conference. The unbelievable video shows President Bush ducking for cover not once, but twice, just narrowly missing the shoes. Talk about good reflexes! If you haven't seen this yet, then it is a must (and no, it's not a joke either). Just as well the reporter wasn't a woman who might have been wearing heels. Ouch!
