It’s Groundhog Day in Gifville and brave Iraqi reporter Muntadhar al-Zaidi is back hurling more objects at former US president George W. Bush. This time he tosses a volleyball.

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.

Remember our friend the ROFLCopter from VCG Post #170. Well, he’s all grown up now and has graduated from rotating in his bedroom to joining the air force and bombing the bejeezus out of the enemy. And boy, is he dangerous when he’s carrying a full payload of acronyms.
