Hey Bush- thank's for the jobs!


Ramazan Baydan, owner of the Baydan Shoes factory, poses with a newly produced copy of the shoe (dubbed "Bush Shoes") that was thrown on December 14 by an Iraqi journalist to US president George Bush on December 22, 2008 in Istanbul. The maker of the shoes that an Iraqi journalist hurled at US President George W. Bush has had to take on 100 extra staff to cope with a surge in demand for his footwear.

"Between the day of the incident and 1:00 pm today we have received orders totalling 370,000 pairs", Istanbul-based Serkan Turk, head of sales at Baydan Shoes, told AFP. Turk said orders had initially flooded in from Iraq, followed by other Middle East countries and finally from the rest of the world, including for 19,000 pairs from the United States. Formerly prosaically dubbed Model 271, the black polyurethane-soled shoes have been renamed Bush Shoes, he said.
