What does it mean when someone throws a shoe at you?..

.. I saw this done earlier to Bush and I know it means a bad thing.. forgot what it means when someone does this.. anyone know?..
Redneck Rev:

Maybe he wanted to play football with Bush but didn't have a ball. Bush didn't get it, he was suppose to catch the shoe.

Knight:

LMAO! that man was sticking moves bobbin' and weavin'

Redneck Rev:

Knight:

LOL!

In most Middle Eastern cultures, showing the bottom of your feet to someone is an insult. It means something like "you are below the dirtiness of my feet", or "you deserve to be walked on like dirt". That is why when someone goes there, they must be careful not to cross their legs so that the bottom of their shoes show. It's important when a person visits other countries to get very acquainted with the cultural customs. Things we think of with no regard could mean something very different to someone else.

As far as I understand it, Muslims consider the foot and the sole of the shoe as particularly dirty, so throwing shoes at someone is basically throwing dirt at them.

Knight:

Ahhh Ok.. I figured it was along those lines.. thank you Pixie ;0)

Yur Naem:

I don't know for sure, but thats what I do to spiders..........ehhhhh, I hate spiders! HI SuGa! :)

Toadhead:

Knight:

Chris:

It is said to be traditional in England to throw a shoe at someone when they are setting out on a journey, to wish them luck. The shoe should be thrown in the direction of the journey

Spr808:

When our solders flew over Iraqis in a helicopter with their soles showing, it caused a riot!
How can you what, ever you feel about our President , we were also insulted and the blood of our families, solders who will make Iraq free, make lit of Bush?

Knight:

Guitarplayer:
