Comedy Gold – The Tale Of The “Wide Stance”August 30, 2007
I’m just going to follow up on my previous post about Larry Craig, just because I think it’s so damn funny. The thing I keep chuckling about was the fact that Craig told the undercover airport police officer that the reason his foot had crossed into the adjoining stall was because he had a “wide stance”. I mean, who poops like that? I’m just trying to picture it. It’s pretty funny when you do. Maybe that in and of itself is “lewd conduct”? I dunno.
Since I live in Minneapolis, I thought about going down to MSP airport and doing a little “Mythbusters“-style experiment to see just how wide a stance you’d have to have to actually touch the foot of the man in the next stall. The police report wasn’t too specific about which restroom it was (Northstar Crossing refers to the 100+ restaurants and shops in the Lindbergh terminal), and I’m not sure if I can even get in there (it’s been a while since I’ve flown), so I think I’ve decided against it. It would make for a funny picture though.
Anyway, speaking of wide stances, The Vikings play another preseason game tonight at 7 PM CST.
Update: RawStory has the audio of Craig’s arrest where he gives his statement to the officer. Like I said, comedy gold!
Just the fact that he said “entrapment”, to me, means that he is in fact gay and/or has done that sort of thing before. To claim entrapment basically means “Hey, you were sitting in the stall next to me, what gay man seeking annonymous sex is going to resist that?” LOL
