Muslims are required to wash their feet, along with their faces and hands, before praying. This could be seen as part of their daily ablutions, or down in Tennessee, as an act of terrorism.
Judd went a-hollerin' down to Bill's office with his crazy fear that the Muslims were fixin' to get a foothold, as it were, right there in the state capital! Lookie here, they're installing a foot sink!
Well, an official inquiry was launched, costing who the heck knows how many dollars and wasted time, and back came the answer that was already known to anyone on earth who has ever taken half a moment to stop running around all busy being important to engage a custodian to see how he/she mops up the soup that you spill all over the break room. They use what they call a mop sink.
