The recent incident involving president Bush (previously at Neatorama) inspired RJ Evans to investigate the meaning of the thrown shoe outside the Middle East. He found many examples of the flung shoe (or is it flinged?) as a cultural meme or even as art. The "shoe tree" shown is outside of Fallon, Nevada. Link -Thanks, RJ!

What is the story behind shoe trees? Surely there is some kind of folklore to inspire people around the world to do this? Neatorama, what say you?
