Las Vegas

Still far too busy for proper blogging at the moment but a quick peep at Mike's blog (link to left as per usual) reveals that he has been to Las Vegas. Put me in mind of the Gram Pasons song of the same name...

Have the words too..

ooh, Las Vegas, ain't no place for a poor boy like me,

ooh, Las Vegas, ain't no place for a poor boy like me

very time I hit your crystal city

you know you're gonna make a wreck out of me

well, the first time I lose I drink whiskey

second time I lose I drink gin

third time I lose I drink anything

'cause I think I'm gonna win

ooh, Las Vegas, etc

the queen of spades is a friend of mine

the queen of hearts is a bitch

someday when I clean up my mind

I'll find out which is which

ooh, Las Vegas, etc

well, I spend all night with the dealer

tryin' to get ahead

spend all day at the Holiday Inn

trying to get out of bed

ooh, Las Vegas, etc

Cracking stuff, innit!

You keep on drinking your own pish Mr Rabbit, and you'll end up as a stiff in an alley somewhere with no shoes and an empty wallet.

I hate Vegas and all it stands for.

The Bellagio is kinda nice though.

Mr Bastard - might well anyway ;)

Earl - I've never been to Vegas or anywhere remotely near it but everyone I've spoken to who has says it's vile.

Verdant Earl said...

Hey...what happened to Jimmy Bastard and Never Mind the Bollix?

Says the blog has been removed!!!

white rabbit said...

Earl - I saw that too. I don't know. Maybe Ron Knee knows.

I'm an unabashed lover of Las Vegas. I think of it as a Disneyland for adults. My personal life experience there is well encapsulated in the old joke. A guy went to Vegas in a $20,000 Cadillac and went home in a $200,000 Greyhound Bus.

A friend just got back from Vegas. She'd won 36 whole dollars at the blackjack table. I tried really hard to act excited for her- failed miserably. From her reaction, you'd have thought she'd won the jackpot. "We decided next time we go we'll have to drag you with us!" she told me.
Um, woohoo? Yippee? Do I HAVE to go into one of those cheesy casinos??
