Just give it a tappy tap tap

Earlier this week, a co-worker and I were discussing Senator Larry Craig's arrest in June for "lewd conduct" in the men's bathroom at the Minneapolis Airport. When we found out that he apparently was giving a "signal" to the gentlemen in the next stall (who turned out to be a cop) when he tapped his foot, we both had the same reaction - tapping your foot while on the crapper means that you want to have sex?? What if he was bored... just waiting for a highly anticipated (and long overdue) bowel movement? Then I wondered, have I ever tapped my foot while dropping a deuce?? If I have done so, let me assure you that it will cease... directly.

Apparently, this foot tapping in the bathroom thing is nothing new. According to a Washington Post article it's been going on since at least the 1960s. I wonder at what point it became enough of a problem that the police started setting up sting operations to catch these characters? Maybe it was to haze the new officers of the department. Can you imagine hanging out in a bathroom stall all day, just waiting for someone to tap their foot? Excuse the pun, but what a shitty assignment.

For any restroom-sex aficionados out there I apologize, but I just don't understand the excitement in this. I go into a bathroom stall for one reason... and you probably don't want to be anywhere around when I do.
