Bush Shoe Toss Games Go Viral
Tew's "stupid little flash game" started getting millions of hits, and threatened to overload the servers for Tew's new humor site. "We've spent the last three days trying to keep the servers alive and we're meant to be working on our other main startup PopJam. So we whacked it on eBay," he said.
- Kast Sko Mot Bush, a cool, catapult-powered game
- Ninja Bush, which puts the president in a black ninja outfit and lets him return fire with baseballs
- Bye Bye Bush, which shows the president on an infinite field (and gives players a seemingly endless supply of shoes)
- Bush Shoe Incident, which tests players' reaction time
Many websites and animated GIFs have also drawn supporters. One website, Thank You for Throwing Your Shoe, asks people to: "Hold up your shoe for Muntadar al-Zeidi, the Iraqi journalist who was arrested for throwing his shoes at President Bush. We don't condone shoe throwing, but we prefer it to war". The site is a gallery of people holding up their own shoes in support, and has hundreds of submissions already.
