You've heard of the bobblehead doll that baseball teams love to hand out to fans. So how about a bobblefoot?

The St. Paul Saints are putting their own twist on the popular promotion, in a nod to one of the most notorious Minnesota stories of last year.

At Sunday's game, they'll give 2,500 fans a miniature bathroom stall with a pair of lower legs and feet - one of which is springloaded so that it taps. (image, right; full photo here)

A Saints press release notes that, "It doesn't matter if your tapping style is done with a 'wide stance.'"

That's a not-so-subtle reference to Idaho Republican Sen. Larry Craig, who pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct after an undercover police officer arrested him for allegedly soliciting sex in a bathroom stall at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

The team is an independent club that plays in the American Association.
