Mostly Gambling with Rosie O’Donnell

In the game of life, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. It’s all about what kind of stakes are involved. You could lose, like, $5 or your, like, your kidney, both are a tough pill to swallow. …I wonder what kind of steak & kidney pie I could get for $5? Probably not a very good one… It’s kind of weird when the title of a dish of food mentions the animal organ it comes from… Ahh… I digress.

    Blah, five dollars is nothing.
    Also, it’s called McCarren airport.
    And, meeting Rosie is not as awesome as meeting, say, Mostly Lisa.

    Las Vegas does not have an LVX. That’s Los Angeles you are thinking of. In Las Vegas our airport is named after former Senator McCarran who was leading anti-communist witch hunts before that guy Joe McCarthy (who McCarthyism is named after) was even in the US Senate. McCarran’s tactics made McCarthy look like nothing too.

    The airport is just referred to as McCarran. LVX is a strange thing that I have only ever heard you use. There is only a McCarran International Airport in town as there is actually no airport located within the legal limits of the entity known as the City of Las Vegas. McCarran is actually in Paradise Township.

    Oh well, it is cool you got to meet Rosie O’Donnell. Which concourse were you on? The machines on D Concourse are usually somewhat more pleasant than that type you encountered.

    @michael — huh?

    @Miiitch — well nothing is quite like meeting me. you might be able to replicate it with say a wet towel and a bucket of feathers… but you know all that…

    @stephen — i’m canadian what can i say. see, i often make up things that don’t exist and then play dumb and pretend i don’t know any better. you can see how that works to my advantage… mostly.

    Heh…according to reports, we missed both you and Rosie by about a half an hour. BTW, it was nice meeting you at the TWiT Live booth. :)

    Next time you go to Vegas you should go longer than a layover. If you do, you can hang out by the pool and play craps for a couple of days, but still have time to play $1 slots at the airport while you are waiting to leave.

    Rosie didn’t look too happy in the photo. Slots are alright to play if you want to loose money lol. Craps supposedly is one of the better games to win money on, I prefer Blackjack. One day I’ll get to Vegas and loose big! lol

    Lisa, it’s a south park reference. They make fun of trapper keeper binders, and Rosie O’Donnell is in there. Anyways, it’s pretty funny. Apparently no one else got it :/

    Love your expressions! They should have cams at slot machines, just to see people’s faces as they drop tons of money at the flick of a button…so much hope and then it all gets crushed in seconds.

    Especially seeing all the senior citizens with their credit cards literally plugged into the machines – expressionless faces as they drop all their retirement money hoping to hit it big.

    Very funny vid!

    your face looked much like mine does when i play slots… ala “wtf is going on?”

    i feel that you would have to go to college to understand all of the shenanigans in the gambling world.

    @Chris — nice meeting you too! don’t feel bad about missing the airport celebrity encounter. as you can tell by my video, you didn’t miss Rosie’s best performance…

    @Tyler — she looked super sunburnt. peeling nose and everything. :0

    @Michael — man! i rarely miss a south park reference, but i’m not up to date on their latest seasons. need to commit to watching them all… marathon! yes!

    @Mike C. — i couldn’t believe they let me shoot video and live stream in a casino! that would never fly up here in Canadia.

    @Diggles — i heard that at MIT they teach you how to win at 21. :p agreed.

    Wow, Rosie O’Donnell.

    In the photo of you two, she looks like she has the meat sweats. Had she just consumed a 3 pound cheese steak? What am I saying!? It’s Rosie, of course she had!
