And I bet the offers keep on coming

By now everyone has heard of journalist in Iraq who threw his shoes at US President George W. Bush during the press conference but what you may not heard was the upside of the incident. Apparently, there is a bride in al-Zeidi’s future with a dowry all for the taking. Ha’aretz:
The head of a large West Bank family wants to reward the Iraqi journalist who lobbed his shoes at President George W. Bush by sending him a bride. 75-year-old Ahmad Salim Judeh says if journalist Muntadhar al-Zeidi is interested the family is willing to take one of its eligible daughters to Iraq along with her dowry. Judeh says doing so would be our honor. He also said Friday that the 500-member clan had raised $30,000 for al-Zeidi's legal defense.

So like, how long before al-Zeidi is offered a contract to endorse shoes?
