Bush's Shoe Incident Becomes Online Game

Yesterday's news is today's viral video game. President Bush's close encounter with a size 10 shoe in Baghdad on Sunday has already been turned into an online time-waster.

"Bush's Boot Camp" puts players in the role of an agent tasked with protecting the president by shooting at a barrage of shoes. Unlike reporter/shoe-hurler Muntadar al-Zaidi, who hurled his footwear at the president during a press conference in Iraq on Sunday, the game's supply of shoes to toss at Bush is unlimited. Each shoe costs the virtual Bush a bit of health, and the game ends when his health reaches zero.

T-Enterprise, the company behind "Bush's Boot Camp," isn't new to Flash games based on current events. The Glasgow-based company has already released games based on Paul McCartney's divorce from Heather Mills and Sarah Palin's environmental record. Like those games, "Bush's Boot Camp" includes links to articles on the incident in its "information" section.

"We're hoping the agents will use this game as a training aid for future footwear attacks on world leaders," T-Enterprise's Sadi Chishti quipped to the UK's Telegraph.
