From The New York Daily News:
A boot maker who has outfitted President Bush and former Mexican President Vicente Fox in his fancy footwear is quite a heel.
Martin Villegas, who presented Bush with a pair of navy-blue ostrich-skin boots during a visit to Fox's ranch in 2001, allegedly smuggled the skins of endangered species into the U.S. so he could make high-end boots for his clients.
Later reports suggest that, while the President's boots are themselves legal, the laces have been woven out of fairy tongues. When asked by reporters, Mr. Bush claimed that he had no idea that using fairy parts in the manufacture of "ranch wear" was illegal.
He did, however, note that they were "awful good eatin'".
