Interesting Tidbits from Vegas

I was in Las Vegas for the last few days and I have a couple of pertinent things to report.

1. The McRib is there.

2. I was sitting in the sports book at the Monte Carlo overhearing the conversation behind me between a WSU grad from Seattle and some idiot from LA. The guy from Seattle was pretty knowledgeable and seemed to be a solid fan (Of course). I can't say the same for that fat Angelino he was talking to however. When they began discussing the Seahawks, the guy said: "Who do you guys have at running back? Bam Morris?" Yep, this soon to be 37 year-old ex-con is toting the ball for us every Sunday.

3. They let you drink and gamble anywhere you want!

4. I ended up in a limo with a group of seven Australians. (Why I was in the limo or where it was going is not important) I told them where I was from and one of the guys, or mates as they are called in their native tongue, said:

-"Oh, you lost your basketball team huh?"
Me- "Yeah, that's a touchy subject actually, let's just move on from that one."
3rd Guy- "Should we talk about the Seahawks then?"
Me- (Trying to come up with an Australian Rules Football-related comeback)

I was pretty floored that even guys who live in Australia are giving me shit about Seattle sports. I guess it just proves that it is known the world over that we are unlucky bastards.

5. I won $140 playing blackjack. I spent $10 on a baseball bat, $10 on a shovel, and $100 on a cab ride into the desert. Then I did this to the Australians. I used the remaining $20 to buy 5 McRibs, that I easily devoured. Suck it Fortune!

Like most of Eric's posts, I dont realize its a piece of fiction until the end. You had me for awhile until you said you could get 5 Mcribs for 20 bucks. That is bullshit and by following common logic rules, you eating 5 mcribs is therefore an invalid statement.

In fact, the McRibs varied in price from $1.99 - $2.29 depending on which hotel you were in. So I actually had some money to spare after the five.
And Finn, well, I got 2 words for ya! Yes and yes.

Pics?

Erik said...

No. I'm sorry.

I guess we are just supposed to take your word for it? McRibs and Titties

I think I just came up with SEAN's debut live album title. "McRibs and Titties, Life on the Road"

That's brilliant! But can I suggest just a little change?

"McRib, Titties, Flat Tires and Foamy Sweat Pants: Life on the Road"

Platinum.

Hey Finn and Sean (shit pants)...Speaking of Mcribs and Titties...how is the weight loss bet going, fatties?

f. i. n. n. said...

This can not be confirmed at this time. A weight loss challenge has been rumored, but the competitors may or may not be Fortune and f.i.n.n.

Weight (get it?) and see...

two dudes doing a weight loss challenge together? Perhaps "McRibs and Cocks, Life on the Road Suckin and Fuckin" would be a better title for that album.

So... Did you want in, or something?
