Shoes thrown at Dr. Doom Nouriel Roubini

Doom's DarlingsNew York, USA. Noted economist and professor at New York University, Nouriel Roubini, miraculously escaped unhurt when a laid off Wall Street banker Fichard Ruld threw two shoes at him in quick succession. Prof Roubini, also known as Dr. Doom, was delivering a lecture at a seminar called by NYSE when shoes were thrown at him.

The shoe thrower, Fichard Ruld, used to work with Lehman Brothers before he lost his job due to bankruptcy (of the bank). He got worked up when Roubini predicted that economic recession will continue till 2010, and bankers and policy makers were to be blamed for the mess. He threw both his shoes at Roubini before he was nailed to the ground by security-men present at the seminar.

“Roubini is the real culprit. He has engineered all this economic chaos through his three agents, whom he refers to as Doom’s Darlings. Now he is conspiring to keep us out of jobs for another two years. It’s him who should be arrested, not me.” Ruld told media persons as he was being taken for jail out.

But Professor Roubini seemed unperturbed by the attack. He said that people must learn to accept their own mistakes rather than pointing fingers and throwing shoes at others, especially at those who tell the bitter truth. He declined to comment on allegations of triggering chaos in markets through his agents.

“Shoes don’t scare me. But those who wear them are quite scary. Did you notice the shoes that were thrown at me? You just know that they belonged to an ex-banker, but I’d request you to take a finer look at the shoes and you will get many answers.” Dr. Doom told in a puzzling manner.

Faking News, along with other media organizations, finally were allowed to have a look at the shoes by the FBI from a distance of fifteen feet. The shoes belonged to a little know brand ‘Vanity’ and were of size 11. But what was most surprising was that both the shoes were for the left foot.
