Bush Shoe Incident Muse For Online Game Makers

Posted on December 31, 2008

President Bush showed quick reflexes when an Iraqi journalist threw shoes at him two weeks ago during a press conference in Iraq. No one should be throwing things at the U.S. President but the incident has provided inspiration for the creation of funny animated graphics and free web games. Some of the animated graphics can be found on Boing Boing.

There are many Bush shoe dodging games. One of the best Bush shoe games is Sock and Awe. In this one you try to hit President Bush with a shoe, which isn't easy because he is very good at avoiding shoes and appears randomly behind the podium.

Update: Sock and Awe has been played over 100 million times according to a counter on the site.
