The Slipper Saga continues.....

It's become a bit of a fad this election season. Yes I'm talking about throwing footwear.

This afternoon, Karnataka chief minister B.S. Yeddyurappa had a slipper hurled at him while addressing an election gathering in Channarayapatna in Hassan district.

The slipper missed its mark but fell on the stage. Chandrashekhar, a resident of Kodihalli, has been arrested by the police. Karnataka's law minister Suresh Kumar said other leaders would have forgiven similar incidents but it seems the CM decided that the police should carry out the necessary action under law to deter others. Looks like the shoe throwers' luck has just run out.

Frankly, the whole flying footwear protest thing is getting a bit boring. Think of something else guys, be innovative. ;-) Just kidding. Kids, don't try this at home (or at election rallies) :D .
