Video: Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe

June 27, 2008

NY Magazine has posted, in two parts, Les Blank's short film Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe. All of the pertinent information about why and how Herzog eats his shoe (he really eats it!) so go there and read it and then watch the short film they have so lovingly posted But here, on (after the jump) we will give you three haikus about the film, choose your favorite:

Werner wears Reeboks

He used to wear desert boots

Oh his poor bowels


Spaghetti laces

Angel hair, shoestring, cream sauce

Italian leather


Boiling tongues, soles

The shoe spirit will burn free

Untie my bindings
