In the wake of the "Shoe-Fly" incident, news reporters have been informing us that in the middle east, it's an insult to throw your shoes at someone. I don't know about you, but I kinda figured this out. It's not like we come from a country where we're constantly tossing footwear at loved ones as a sign of respect. The only time we as Americans throw anything at someone we like is at concerts. But even then, it still might be some asshole trying to pelt the lead singer.

Bush joins at least NOFX (left) and Jane's Addiction (below, 2:30 mark) as people who've had shoes thrown their way.

There is a BBC clip on youtube that says what the guy said when he threw each shoe individually. It was awe inspiring and well deserved considering that he was tortured as a journalist. He is a honorable man, in my opinion.
