Gosh, I have seen so many awful sides of mankind this month leading up to this holiday season, which I honestly prefer not to go into at this time, because I don't want to influence anyone into thinking that it's a "dog eat dog" world out there, say something bad and have it stuck in their minds like a broken record.
Instead I would like to dedicate the rest of this post and the rest of December to all "shoe dogs" out there around the world, in honor of our outgoing President, George W. Bush.
Gosh! What happened to him over there in Iraq recently was really mean and totally uncalled for. Aside from being President of the United States, I think he's actually a really nice guy.
He doesn't deserve to be treated like that, but hey, shit happens man! There's not much we can do about it now.
What I would like to propose though, is something entirely different. Not to add insult to injury or anything, because I'm not a mean person, but the way this shoe throwing business seems to have snowballed, in some places even affect the local economy, I see yet another opportunity for a Hallmark holiday in the bright horizon.
Going forward: December 14, International "Shoe Dog Day", in honor of George W. Bush, the Patron Saint of Shoe Dogs, to help boost the already meager December sales as of late.
I mean come on, the way he dodged that shoe?
It's gotta go down in history as one of the most remarkable feats of our time, never to be forgotten.
I'm not sure where the term "shoe dog" originated or how it all started, all I know is that the term is commonly used for "shoe salesperson" in retail America. It probably sounds derogatory to most people, but in "shoe sales culture", salespeople use it to poke fun with each other and carry it with a certain level of pride, especially in situations that call for a high five.
Turkish shoemaker hits the jackpot
“We have been producing that specific style, which I personally designed, for 10 years, so I couldn’t have missed it, no way,” said Ramazan Baydan, a shoemaker in Istanbul. “As a shoemaker, you understand.”
