Is a head of state being booted out a laughing matter? Well if net is any indication some people thinking so. It's been 48 hours since out going US president George W Bush was "shoed away" in Baghdad but the world can't stop laughing at such a bizarre incident. It's a 21st century first where a serving head of the state of the most powerful nation has been mistreated like the commonest of the commoner. In an age of instant messaging, global communication and World Wide Web, videos of booting out ceremony of Mr. President spread faster that any wild fire in Texas could. Within no time a community too developed in the virtual world that could not help itself but laugh at the audacity as well as complete stupidity of this "ferocious" Iraqi journo. On the social networking site, Facebook, already a million people are laughing out loud (read LOL!) and the number is growing. The community "1,000,000 who laughed at Bush when a shoe was hurled at him by an Iraqi," created by a webber, Hassan Malik, has already attracted many people who are amused by this incident.
