 Now or Never Offer! Hurl A Shoe at George W. Bush!
Since an Iraqi journalist hurled his footwear at George W Bush, portraits of the outgoing US president have become popular targets for demonstrators around the world -and now a US art gallery has opened an exhibit with a "shoe throw" fundraiser.

For 1 dollar a throw, visitors can hurl shoes covered in red paint at a large picture of Mr Bush, reports the Telegraph.

City Councilor Eric Navickas - who opened the MAda Shell Gallery with partner Amy Godard - slathered a layer of red paint on the soles of sneakers, boots and sandals before people fired the footwear at an 8-foot image of Bush.

Godard said the exhibit is a "statement of solidarity" with Muntadhar al-Zeidi, the Iraqi journalist who was arrested after hurling two shoes at Bush in protest during a Baghdad news conference last month.
