Monument to Testicles

I still watch the video of the Iraqi reporter throwing his shoes at the Chimp. Seems somebody in Iraq liked it as much as I did:

When an Iraqi journalist hurled his shoes at George W. Bush last month at a Baghdad press conference, the attack spawned a flood of Web quips, political satire and street rallies across the Arab world.

Now it's inspired a work of art.

A sofa-sized sculpture — a single copper-coated shoe on a stand carved to resemble flowing cloth — was formally unveiled to the public Thursday in the hometown of the late Iraqi ruler Saddam Hussein.


I'm down wid it.
