Where you extend your big toe and tap upon the girls anus (as if to knock). The girl then spreads her ass cheeks and you proceed to stick your entire foot in the girls anal canal while singing the Doors classic tune Break On Through.

Steven: So why do you wish to work here at Rubys?

Ralph: I've always wanted to work for in a restaurant now I'm just trying to get my foot in the door.

Dan: What happened to your thumb?
Lee: lol
