Slotpourri

28 August 1999

A tourist spots a friend playing slots in a Strip casino. "Hey, Bill. Nice seein' you. How's your luck?"

Bill: "Rotten."

Tourist: "And how's your wife?"

Bill: "About the same."

When you see some of those luscious showgirls in Las Vegas, you can understand why they're the only ones in show business to leave the audience asking for less.

*****

Wife to husband: "Dear, I saved $50 by not playing the quarter slots this morning."

"That's good," the husband replied. "But you could have saved more by not playing the dollar slots."

The one crop that is harvested green in the Mojave Desert is the tourist in Las Vegas.

Two men were chatting at a country store in North Dakota.

"I heard that Luke Williams has gone to Las Vegas. Do you reckon there'll be enough going on to suit him?"

"Can't rightly say," said his friend. "Just to be sure, he took his checkerboard with him."

*****

*****

A seedy-looking man was checking into an off-the-strip motel in Las Vegas.

"I'll have to ask you to pay in advance," said the manager. "Your luggage is too emotional."

"What do you mean, emotional?" asked the guest.

"I mean," said the manager, "that it's too easily moved."

*****

Many casino goers look on casinos as an enemy. But they fight a no-win battle. Too much fraternizing with the enemy.
