The case of the mysterious Florida shoes!

Recently in Florida, this thing happened...

MIAMI — State troopers are looking for a charity to take thousands of shoes that were dumped on a Miami expressway, tying up rush hour traffic. Lt. Pat Santangelo says the Florida Highway Patrol received a call about the shoes Friday morning.

Santangelo says he's not sure where the shoes came from. There were no signs of a crash and no one stopped to claim them. He says he hopes someone will take them because he doesn't want to send them to the dump.

Workers using a front-end loader and a dump truck were able to quickly clear at least one lane by sweeping all the shoes to shoulder, but delays were expected until they could all be removed.

In an update to this information, a Miami based charity "Soles4Souls" will send the shoes to Haiti, where probably will not be thrown into a highway.

The Florida Highway Patrol is still investigating but a theory has arisen that this act was probably a protest against departing lame-duck US President George W. Bush, imitating the Iraqi journalist that threw his shoes at him.

Man, I love Florida! People are crazier than people in California or here!!!!

Love them!!!
