An Iraqi Reporter’s Journey from a News Item to Game (in Four Days)

On December 14, during President Bush’s surprise visit to Bagdad, an Iraqi reporter threw his shoes at the President of the United States of America (throwing shoes is a traditional Arab insult). The man yelled “This is a goodbye kiss from the Iraqi people, dog,” as he threw his shoes.

Today, in the process of productively applying for summer internships, I found the following game on Sock and Awe. Mind the Blox is much more fun, but the humor value of Sock and Awe makes up for its low strategy threshold.

In less than four days this man, and his voice, have become one of the featured games of a major game site.

Sometimes I love the internet.
