Who said giving shoes was bad luck?
It is interesting applying all the shoe superstitions to the current events. Did they land sole down, or sole up? Where were they pointing? Certainly the superstitions about giving shoes as a gift might apply here as both parties are going to walk away from each other. So too is the belief that giving shoes is bad luck for now it has been reported Iraqi journalist Muntazer Al Zaidi has been offered the hand in marriage of a 20 year old Egyptpian girl, promised by her father because of Al Zaidi's heroic act. Daughter, Amal Saad Gumaa, said she agreed with the idea. No matter his fate the shoe throwing journalist is now a hero and may as a result have introducted the barefoot interview.
