Shine or Shiner?

The funny thing, this is becoming an example for the rest of the world. The Turkish manufacturer who made the original shoes thrown at Bush has received 300,000 orders for that model, which is more than four times the number normally sold each year. An Egyptian man and a Palestinian mayor have both offered their daughters for marriage to al-Zaidi (the shoe-thrower), including healthy dowries. In London, a protest group sent a box of shoes and a letter to the US Embassy. And over 46 million shoes have been thrown at Bush in the online game “Sock and Awe“.
