Sorry boys, no inheritance for you…Daddy needs a new pair of shoes!

A Saudi man has reportedly offered $10 million for the pair of shoes that Iraqi journalist Muntadar Al Zaidi threw at ol’ Dubya.

According to Gulfnews and Al Arabiya net, Hassan Mohammad Makhafa is willing to sell all the properties that he would have bequeathed his sons to buy Al Zaidi’s shoes.

“The $10 million is ready with me and I will handover this amount for Al Zaidi’s shoes which are more expensive than all my properties to be given to my sons,” Makhafa said.

If purchased, the shoes will be enshrined as a “medal of freedom.”

Don’t get me wrong. I mean, I get that these will likely be, if not already, the most famous pair of shoes in history. But did this guy forget how we roll? He is Arab, right? Where’s the haggling in this transaction? Where’s the requisite walking away only to get called back by the seller? 😛
