Nono! The Code for THAT Is A Wide Stance And TWO Foot-Bumps!




Posted at 23:59 by Gavin M.

From the Larry Craig arrest tape:

Craig: “I sit down, um, to go to the bathroom and ah, you said our feet bumped. I believe they did, ah, because I reached down and scooted over and um, the next thing I knew, under the bathroom divider comes a card that says Police. Now, um, (sigh) that’s about as far as I can take it, I don’t know of anything else. Ah, your foot came toward mine, mine came towards yours, was that natural? I don’t know. Did we bump? Yes. I think we did. You said so. I don’t disagree with that.”

Sergeant: “Okay. I don’t want to get into a pissing match here.”

Indeed not! Then again, who doesn’t love a challenge?

    This story just keeps on giving, doesn’t it?

    Thank you, Senator Craig.

    depends…Craig might also enjoy what’s known in the biz as a “golden shower.”

    It must be hell being a police officer these days…I mean, imagine getting up in the morning knowing you’re going to be spending your day in bathroom stalls playing footsie entrapment.

    by the by…Little Britain anticipated this silly stuff eons ago (or maybe some British MP got caught in a similar predicament) and concocted a sweet sketch… courtesy of C&L. (Love the dutiful wife)

    Yeah, this is a tough one. Because when I’m taking a crap in a public restroom, I don’t really pay attention to my feet. They’re typically floppin around down there, bumping other people, making new friends. I can’t really imagine why you might be sort of withdrawn under those circumstances. Hell, everybodys pretty much takin care of their business, it’s a great opportunity to chat, right?

    Yesterday it’s Boston, today it’s Genesis.

    Tomorrow you’ll need to find a way to work King Crimson into a comment.

    The tape is funny – at one point the cop says “Embarrassing – no wonder we’re going down the tubes.” “I mean people vote for you.” Ha.

    Something like that, anyway.

    I must say, I’m not usually one for fart gags, but that is some mighty fine harmony they got there.

    I’m not usually one for Family Guy, but this is probably the funniest thing that’s ever been on that show.

    Well, it’s not like there are more important things police could be doing, like bearing down on unsolved murders or finding missing children or whatever.

    And why is Homer Simpson speaking with a funny accent and wearing a wig?

    The best part o’ that tape was where he said the reason his hand when down below the partition was because there was a piece of toilet paper on the floor that he wanted to pick up.

    I’d heard he said there was a piece of paper, but I assumed he was gonna claim it was something that fell out of his briefcase or whatever.

    Gentemen, ladies, I put the questions to you directly: Have you ever used a public toilet?

    (I will assume the answer here is “yes”)

    Have you ever seen a piece of toilet paper on the floor near said public toilet?

    (I will assume the answer here too is “yes”)

    Have you ever been tempted even in the slightest to PICK UP THAT PIECE OF TOILET PAPER?

    (I make no assumptions here. I simply rest my case.)

    Only if it’s green & has the face of a dead president or Ben Franklin or Al Hamilton on it. You can wash ‘em, you know.

    This entire episode gives an entirely new — and entirely unwanted — meaning to the term, “bathroom humor.”

    Fargo, revisited.

    Craig: Officer, I answered your question. I answered the darned… I’m cooperatin’ here!

    Officer: Sir, you have no call to get snippy with me, I’m just doing my job here.

    Craig: I’m… I’m not arguing here! I’m cooperating. So there’s no need to… we’re doin’ all we can here.

    I just stopped by to say hi, and to drop off a sneak preview of my George Michael, I Want Your Stall:

    Rumor has it the song has already been recorded and will be released later tonight. That is a false rumor, if, in fact, the fact that there is such a rumor, is not, in fact, fact, but rumor.

    No, I’ve merely started to pen the parody. It’s a take on George Michael’s not so classic hit from the 80s, I Want Your Sex, and it will offer Senator Larry Craig the defense he’s been so desperately needing to save face and to clear his name in the embarrassing scandle he now finds himself the subject of.

    Stay tuned for more information. Here’s a sneak preview for those that are looking through this blog stall:

    I Want Your Stall:

    parody lyrics words by Dr BLT

    they’re gonna say I’m guilty

    of somethin’ rather bad

    but all I want is somethin’

    that I never had

    I know that I’m not handicapped

    but I need the extra space

    that damned stall’s always taken

    so I cram into this place

    chorus:

    I want your stall

    mine is too small

    I want your stall

    you know I’m clastrophobic

    afraid of space too small

    so I will do most anything to

    get into your stall

    so don’t you get perverted

    and think I’m out for sex

    my stall is like a single home

    and yours, a grand duplex

    I want your stall

    mine is too small

    I want your stall

    mine is too small…

    I swear it’s not what it seems

    I tell you no lies

    I don’t need no Bible

    just look in my eyes

    the walls in these stalls

    keep on

    closin’ in on me

    it ain’t nothin’ kinky

    so please let me be

    I want your stall

    mine is too small

    I want your stall

    I want your stall

    Correction: That first line should have read my George Michael Parody, I Want Your Stall.
