The Zapatazo, or Big Shoe Incident, in a Mexican cartoon
Trino is one of Mexico´s best cartoonist, and his take on the Shoe Incident was quite funny.
In Latin America the shoe-throwing incident is called the Zapatazo, literally The Big Shoe incident. My favorite comic strip, Tales of Cops and Robbers, starts every day with a seedy looking crook pulling out a gun and saying, “This is a robbery.” But the day after the shoe-throwing incident in Iraq, the robber shows up demanding money and the teller says, Well you don´t have a gun, I´ll have to speak to the manager. The manager says, Our policy is not to hand over money unless the person has a gun. Whereupon a shoe flies at the manager´s head, then another. They hand over the money, and the robber is back home with his buddy, who asks, Where are your shoes. To which he replies, Let´s just call them my weapons of mass destruction.
