Ahmadinejad’s Posse Hit Payless ShoeSource

Members of Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s 140-person entourage used their United Nations visit to New York City as an opportunity to go shopping for hard-to-come-by goods: over-the-counter pain relievers, wholesale shampoo, and Payless shoes. “One Iranian visitor debated dropping $40 for a pair of kids’ shoes Monday at a Payless on Fifth Ave. before finally springing for the footwear,” the Daily News wrote. “The inexpensive footwear was enough to almost empty the Iranian’s wallet.” Hopefully he took advantage of their BOGO deals.
