Skip to comments.[Larry Craig bobblefoot] Saints promotion: Not quite a bobblehead

Sunday's giveaway is a miniature bathroom stall with a couple of lower legs and feet - a spoof on the airport episode involving Idaho Sen. Larry Craig at the Twin Cities airport last summer.
The St. Paul Saints, long known for offbeat, sometimes edgy, promotions, have come up with a real doozy for this Sunday's game. While lots of sports franchises hand out bobblehead dolls, usually depicting their players, the Saints are handing out 2,500 "bobblefoot" knicknacks.
The keepsakes consist of a miniature bathroom stall with a couple of lower legs and feet. One of the feet is springloaded and "taps," which, the Saints' press release says, is in honor of National Tap Dance Day.
The team also takes pains to note: "It doesn't matter if your tapping style is done with a 'wide stance' or is used as some sort of code."
That's a none-too-subtle reference to Idaho Republican Sen. Larry Craig, who pleaded guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct after an undercover police officer arrested him for allegedly soliciting sex in a bathroom stall at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

For the last time, the man just has a wide stance! :)
That is freakin’ hilarious.
That is just too funny!!!
Damn, that’s good.
Also offered is a limousine rumored to have been the party spot for Larry Sinclair and state senator Obama.
I hope the Senator gets one in the mail.
