As former CWG chief Suresh Kalmadi becomes the latest to suffer a shoe hit, comic experts tell you how to ace the throw.
Be seen when you hurl it
“This new pop punishment is South Asia’s gift to the world. Remember, you must be seen while throwing the shoe — that is how you can enjoy your 15 minutes of fame. It is what I call the Rakhi Sawant moment. You might even land an endorsement from the shoe company!”
Branded? no way!
“Never use a branded shoe because the person might say something worse for the want of the second one. Also, hit it next to the ear — hitting on the neck might be mistaken for a massage. If you are at the receiving end, your parents must have trained you to handle that.”
Throw people at shoes
“Throwing shoes at people is now outdated. I think the time has come for us to throw people at shoes. I know many men who’d want to throw their wives, but most are unable to pick them up. If it’s shoes, it is important that the shoe you throw does not belong to you, so that you can run away easily afterwards.”
