It’s sad, but utterly fitting that George W. Bush’s presidency should be bookended with attacks by a pretzel and a pair of shoes.
I’ve been work displacing amusing myself on Twitter this evening by trying to come up with a title for the film dramatisation of today’s brutal attack. This was prompted by Alex Tew’s exquisite newspaper headline suggestion: “Sock and Awe“.
For the film, the best I’ve come up with so far is ‘A Shoe To A Kill’ (followed by ‘The Aiming of the Shoe’ and the quite terrible ‘Lace/Off’). My Twitter followers have come up with some decent suggestions too including my two favourites so far…
Meantime, can we all please hang shoes from power lines like in Wag The Dog? I can think of no more fitting way to mark the end of the 43rd presidency.
