Turn the Other Shoe?

The video of the day comes from Paris,France. Muntadhar al-Zeidi(never trust a guy with a hyphen in his name) was conducting a news conference. He's the guy that spent nine months in jail for throwing his shoes at President Bush. They were discussing plans to make shoe throwing a demonstration sport at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

Another Iraqi apparently decided to turn the tables and threw his shoe at al-Zeidi. As he was being escorted out, al-Zeidi's brother gets mad and tosses his shoe at the second thrower. The only word I can make out in this video is security (at the 0:33 mark). In related news, al-Zeidi reportedly has replaced Tiger Woods as the new spokesperson for Payless.
