Aces Casino Blog: Our Top 3 Submissions Into the March Edition of the "Aces Bad Ideas Hall Of Fame"


Just because Aces Casino is widely known as the top orange county casino party company in southern California doesn't mean that we're not also well-versed in other areas, too.  The Orange County Register didn't name our fine corporation the top casino night party company in the southland for nuthin', you know.  They loved us for our "professional irreverence."  One quick way of defining this would be whenever you poll the masses over at our main office and ask them the one thing that the "Aces Crazies" love more than putting on fabulous orange county casino night events....

That's easy.  Sharing goofy "stranger than fiction" true stories found in the news.

Fortunately, you don't have to look too hard to find the top stories that tickled the Aces Casino fancies for this month of March.... So, let's take a look at the latest edition of the Aces Casino Entertainment staff nominees for the top 3 "Aces Casino Bad Ideas Hall Of Fame" for the Month of March....

#1 -- Berkeley City Councilman Suggests a tax on electronic mail

(Sigh.)  Nothing drives the Aces Casino team crazier than hearing that some bureaucrat politician from California has another GREAT idea on how to tax the fine citizens of this state.  Gas tax, soda tax, internet sales taxes, and now, the "pies de resistance" -- Some blowhard that thinks that creating a tax on e-mail will help fix the U. S. Postal Service.  We here at Aces Casino have two words for you, Mr. Wozniak -- BAD IDEA.  You'll find the link to this interesting article from the Berkeley Side here.  Gawd, help us.  California's politicians are out of their minds.  Stop taxing us, you dopes!  You're killing the business climate of the state!  OK, off the soap box.

Uhh, yeah, maybe NOT.


#2 -- TSA detains passenger for "Wardrobe Malfunction" 

This is one of my all-time favorites... When we get the link, we'll post it here.  A male passenger boarding a Southwest Airlines flight departing from Las Vegas bound for Los Angeles was detained by federal TSA agents because of the way he was dressed when he arrived at the terminal.

Jack Martin, the passenger in question, showed up at the Southwest terminal late Saturday wearing a turban and carrying what turned out to be a 14-pound black bowling ball with a 1/8" thick, 6" long string protruding from the thumb hole that looked just like one of those fuses inside a Wile E. Coyote-type bomb.

Artists' rendering of Jack Martin being a fool.

Needless to say, Mr. Martin, AND all three of his friends flying with him that day, were removed from the LAS / LAX flight manifest, and re-scheduled to fly our the next morning, after receiving proper clearance and a $400 ticket from the local authorities.

Important "Karmic Note:"  Mr. Martin returned to his hotel after the snafu at McCarran, went down to the gaming tables and lost another $2300 (on top of the $1400 lost earlier in the weekend) in the casino located inside the hotel.  Some say he "bombed out."  (Ed. Note: I can't believe you said that.)

#3 -- 4 Kids Ride Down Hill in Large Wooden Electrical Spool

Still another of the all-time Aces faves, this video shows what happens when G-Force hits Impetus.  Watch this one until the end, It's worth it.

"An Oldie, but a Goodie."

And with that "roll down memory lane," we say 'adios' for another issue of the Blog, which means that's all for the "Parakeet Paper" for this Monday.  Come on back on Thursday when the top orange county casino party company in SoCal unveils yet another issue of the "Aces Casino College of Casino Game Knowledge."  Have a good week, and we'll see you then!
