#1 Ha! I fling my shoe at your face! Now I am shoeless and you are pissed!

Almost as good as the Taiwan Parliment, but a ways to go to match the US House of Representatives in the early years.

#3 You know, tu touches on a point I like about parliments. In our Congress, there's no heckling. If you watch the C-Span coverage of the Brits, you see it. Does anyone doubt that cries of "Shame! Shame!" or even "Lotta! Lotta!" wouldn't improve our Congress?

#4 Especially when Ted Kennedy gets up to speak in the Senate.

"Drunk! Drunk! Lush! Lush! Liar! Liar! Bad Driver! Chick Drowner! Doggerl Spouter!" are cries echoing throughout the Senate Chambers.

#5 Does anyone doubt that cries of "Shame! Shame!" or even "Lotta! Lotta!" wouldn't improve our Congress?

Sounds like a couple of Foghorn Leghorn Holling's and Kleagle Byrd's speeches

#7  But the culprits dug it up the next day, violated (bayhurmati) the corpse and put it back.

...You know, I'm not sure what bothers me more: the act itself or the fact that it apparently happens often enough that they have a word for it.
