Good old shoe

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…

Last of the Mocassins


But I have a feeling that the best shoe-pun-movie-title is still out there somewhere. Let me know your suggestions either here or on Twitter. A copy of The Book for the best.

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.
