By now, you’ve probably heard about President Bush’s footwear experience, but you might not know that a Manhattan Transit Worker tried a similar stunt against the MTA’s chief exec.
Of course, MTA workers have to wade through some real junk on occasion, so instead of some wornout brogue, he was trying to hurl a size 10.5 Red Wing boot—a pretty good choice, as projectiles go. Unfortunately, the boot was so massive, the cops got to him before he could get it unlaced.
But at least he went out in style.
