How Kitten Spaghetti Is Like Las Vegas

Gambling is as much fun as throwing your money at strangers who will then ask for more.

Here’s something funny that I’ve noticed: the presence of slot machines makes any place depressing. I visited Monaco as a kid with my family (we have friends who live there) and the city of Monte Carlo is, as you’d imagine, immaculate. It’s really like a James Bond movie. Tile sidewalks, gold leaf on 18th century buildings, stuff like that. But anywhere you’d see a video game normally, there were slot machines.

As two of the L-Dopans have noted, gambling, for me, is like watching a kitten get its organs removed, replaced with spaghetti, then watching it return for more. Monaco was where I first got that feeling.

The good food, laughably snotty “French” (they’re not even real Frenchmen. I don’t know what they’re so snotty about.), beautiful architecture, fascinating history, and stunning views were all tainted by the desperation evident in every corner of the city.

I imagine Las Vegas to be like Monte Carlo, only without the good food, laughably snotty “French”, beautiful architecture, fascinating history, and stunning views.

  1. yes, you are correct, sir. vegas is indeed like monte carlo without all that annoying “appeal” or “culture”, which has instead been replaced with: Honkys in Cowboy Hats Lookin’ For A Fight, Tired Old Whores, Drunks With Mullets Lookin’ For A Fight, Overpriced ShoppingMall Casinos, Haggard Strippers, Fat Lumpy Tourists, and Angry Mexicans With Mullets in Cowboy Hats Lookin’ For A Fight.
