image for Chinese Hire Senator Craig to Design New Olympic Sport: "Johnny Foot Tapping"
Coming to a stadium near you! Johnny Foot Tapping!

Beijing - Chinese Officials are constantly looking for ways to make the Summer Olympics in China something special. Today they added a new experimental sport designed by U.S. Senator Craig, tentatively called "Johnny Foot Tapping".

The game will be played in a small round stadium with a row of 20 bathroom stalls in the center. Competitors will have 15 minutes to be on "offense" and attract the attention of their opponent by tapping their foot under the stall wall. Lude behavior or bad language will result in a yellow penalty card, a second penalty will result in the person having to go to the "penalty stall" where the audience may bombard them with insults and small vegetables.

"We think this will be very fun game for spectators," said Hu Chen Wong, "Senator Craig has been very gracious in helping us develop this unique sport spectacle." Senator Craig has not been available for comment, but sources say he is already paying for the development of a Nintendo version of the sport.

When asked which country would have the best Johnny Foot Tapping team Wong said, "I think maybe Burma, because you know the Generals there, they don't have many women in their lives and we hear they spend a lot of time in their bathroom stalls. Of course they may be extra talented too, because they use squat toilets."

Senator Craig is said to be the top candidate to coach the USA team, but sources say he is still undecided.
