Vijay’s classic GIFs 2007-2011 – 282

 

A Xmas festive edition GIF based on an infamous incident that occurred in Baghdad on the 14th December, 2008. Iraqi journalist Muntadhar al-Zaidi threw both of his shoes at then-United States President George W. Bush, a grave insult in the Arab world. Bush was attending a press conference with Iraqi government officials at the time. Al-Zaidi was recorded as castigating the president of the US as a war criminal. The former president dodged the flight of both shoes, which narrowly missed then Iraqi PM, Nouri al-Maliki who was in attendance. The scene, caught on international TV, became a rich source of inspiration for many memes in the days after.

In April 2015, a Colorado, USA man was cited for firing a gun within a residential area when he took his computer into a back alley and shot it eight times with a 9mm pistol. When questioned, he told police that he had become so frustrated with his computer that he had “reached critical mass,” and stated that after he had shot his computer, “the angels sung on high.”
