‘Bobblefoot’ doll tweaks Larry Craig

May 22, 2008 · 1 Comment


The St. Paul Saints minor leage baseball team is one of the wackier franchises in any league. The Saints trot out their pig mascot every game and offer fans Sister Rosalind’s therapeutic massage.

Now the Saints are offering up this doozy: A "bobblefoot" knick knack that ostensibly is a nod to National Tap Dance Day, but is really a thinly veiled tweak of U.S. Larry Craig.

Craig, busted in a bathroom at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, became famous for his toe-tapping "wide stance" in the stall.

Here’s how the Saints tap around their joke in a press release:

‘During the Sunday, May 25 game the first 2,500 fans in attendance will receive a bobblefoot. The design is a bathroom stall, with a foot that peaks out of the bottom and “taps” up and down. The day coincides with National Tap Dance Day.

While many people tap their foot because they are impatient, others may do it because they are nervous. It doesn’t matter if your tapping style is done with a “wide stance” or is used as some sort of code, the Saints are asking all fans to tap to their heart’s content on May 25.’
