The Royal Flush

Minneapolis Airport Men's Room New Tourist Attraction

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - "Where's the bathroom?" That's the question travelers at the Minneapolis airport are asking. Since U.S. Senator Larry Craig of Idaho was arrested in a sex sting, the bathroom has become a tourist attraction. Airport information specialist Karen Evans says some people are even taking pictures of the infamous bathroom. Craig was arrested June 11th by a Minneapolis airport police officer. The Republican pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct but is trying to withdraw that plea. Many airport workers say they get the question daily, and they watch as people stop by to take pictures. They say the bathroom is by the Lottery shop, next to Royal Zino Shoeshine.

When I saw this article I thought to myself what could be more ridicules.
Then I thought what’s next a brochure to promote this bathroom?
Then I thought hey that might be a fun thing to design.
So I came up with this first brochure daft to promote the Larry Craig Bathroom.
My apologies to the Senator. For details click again

Hey, this is great. I think they should also install a little button outside the stall like in a museum so you can learn more about the incident. I think James Earl Jones could narrate in his deep baritone. Somebody could also recreate the tapping sound so you could really get the feel of the whole thing!

Thanks for the comments, yes good idea unca with the recorded description of the event narrated by James Earl Jones. Along with the foot tapping there could be a code book to desirer what each tap means. 3 rapid taps and one knock =
Four slow taps and 2 knocks= etc.
Then there could be that Tony Orlando and Dawn song playing in the background that goes
“Oh, my darling, knock three times on the ceiling if you want me
Twice on the pipe if the answer is no, oh, my sweetness
(Knock, knock, knock!) Means you'll meet me in the hallway
Mmm, twice on the pipe (clink, clink) means you ain't gonna show”

Love the pictures! When this whole thing happened, I was in the dark as to the significance of the hand signals and other "signs." My husband had to clue me in-ok, I'm rather naive when it comes to
"hand signals used by homosexuals." The funny thing is that my husband has been on the receiving end (ok, I just realized what I typed. Don't take it the wrong way) of some homosexual males' comments. He's wondering if there's something about him that is attractive to other men. I'm digressing here. Gee, this is the first time I've been to your blog. What a way to make a blog appearance!

YooperMama, thanks for finally visiting my blog!
You are now on the “Blogs I Visit” section if that’s ok with you.
I will of course take it off if you don’t want to be associated with me.

I was thinking maybe your husband could work for the police undercover and sit in toilet stalls all day to try and catch these guys. He would have to work it so they would see him walk into the stall. (Which would increase the temptation) Plus think of all the reading he could catch up on.

Blogball, Hmm..I will have to run your idea by my husband. I think he would like the part about being able to catch up on his reading, but I'm not sure about everything else.
