Even though Aces Casino is considered the finest Orange County casino party companies in southern California, our long-time clients ALSO consider our crew of crazies as being big fans of anything that fits the "Theater Of The Bizarre."
Guilty as charged.
The only thing we need to list to prove this point is something we'll call Exhibit "A" -- While tuning in to the piped-in Netflix feed on Sunday evening, the Aces Casino crew was treated to a 1989 movie starring Kris Kristofferson and Cheryl Ladd (she's the reason we turned it on in the first place) called, "Millennium," a film about futuristic time travelers that spirit away airline passengers off of doomed flights and take them to a place that looks like the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland. Yeah, it was THAT bad. And the longer the film went, the worse it got. At the end, a supposedly-smart robot that was full of good advice decides not to save himself when the place blows up. Note to self - When looking for advice, don't ask supposedly-smart robots.
Boy, do we love McBarkers like this. CLASSIC horrible movie, right up there with "Plan 9 From Outer Space" and Sandler's "Jack and Jill," it's THAT bad/good. See what we mean? "Theater Of The Bizarre." Gotta have it.
And so, with that "inspired logic," and also a tip of the cap to the all-powerful internet and Kris Kristofferson's bland portrayal of the dumbest NTSB director in the USA, The Aces Casino "Theater Of The Bizarre Repertoire" proudly presents our "Top 5 Goofiest World Records and Tourist Attractions in the United States," in reverse order.
#5 -- The Largest-Ever recorded snowflake
The first thing that struck me about this lil' ditty was the fact that this world's largest snowflake appeared more than 125 YEARS AGO. What, you mean to tell me that in the last 125 years, with all this crap about global warming supposedly creating these nuclear winters, that we haven't been able to come up with one stinking snowflake that could beat that 1887 feat? And who in their right mind back then saw this Flake-a-saurus, and thought to go get the tape measure? Did they even HAVE tape measures back then? Sorry, no pics of this phenomenon, but Google Doodle did a mock-up of it last week. Oh, well, better luck next year.
#4 -- The Biggest Bottle of Catsup
This suggestion started a war over here at Aces Casino as to what was better on french fries -- Ketchup or ranch dressing? (Don't ask, the argument finally stopped ten minutes ago.) But, since we couldn't find the biggest bottle of Ranch, we're goin' with the catsup. (That's what THEY call it. Sue me.)
#3 -- World's Largest Light Bulb
This one hit home for us. When you're the best Orange County Casino Night party company in the biz, lighting is important. So, check out this 13-foot tall beauty from Edison, N.J. right here. Can't tell from the pic if it's one of those bizarre, curly-cue-looking bulbs that we hate. Even Shaquille O'Neal would have to bring a ladder to change THAT baby.
Now, I don't know about YOU, but it seems that I hear about this big ball of string CONSTANTLY. Boy, I wish that Aces Casino had this twine ball's press agent. Oh, but hold on a minute -- It seems that the "inquiry" sign on the tote board is lit, when discussing this so-called world record. You see, what the crack staff here found out is, there's controversy in this category....
Don'cha just LOVE it? Twine-Gate.
It seems that the world record for the biggest ball of twine is currently held by a Godzilla-sized ball in Cawker City, Kansas, which is estimated to contain over 7 million feet of twine. Now, THAT'S a big ball of twine, and yes, it IS the biggest in the world.
Or IS it?
THat's all for our goofy blog today... Hey, just a reminder -- Those of you that have been part of our "Aces Casino College of Casino Game Knowledge" series, Thursday's blog will feature Part 3 of the Craps seminar we've been posting. Take care, have a good day, and we'll see you "in class" on Thursday!
