Larry Craig at MSP won’t die


Back in February I pointed out MSP has a permanent stigma thanks to Larry Craig and his foot-tapping antics. I also noted the Wikipedia entry didn’t yet list the incident. But thanks to yesterday’s AP story, it is now listed as a tourist destination. Key quote from that story:

One person had offered to buy the restroom stall for $5,000, Hogan said, but airport officials “don’t sell fixtures for novelty purposes.”

Despite what the article claims, my experience in and out of MSP at least once a month often has some soft of Larry Craig anecdote. Just last month, I heard some guys make a Larry Craig joke in the restroom AGAIN.

This video tour of the infamous stall just uploaded to YouTube yesterday:

It just won’t die.

    I worked in one of the shops right near that bathroom. My favorite response to the "Haaaaay where’s the Larry Craig bathroom?" obnoxious tourist query was from a guy at the DVD rental kiosk: "Yeah, no." He then promptly ignored her and continued on with another customer. It was very Clerks-y and I wish my store would’ve let me do that but they were so anal.
