Regarding the following story:

http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/video/paris-hilton-wins-30k-in-las-vegas-15757715

I’m glad that Paris Hilton won big at the blackjack table the other day. However, I’m disappointed that she didn’t mention anything about the guy with the blackjack basic strategy card in Las Vegas last summer. She also didn’t mention who pointed out when and why you should sometimes buy insurance against an ace when the true card-count is relatively high. Paris didn’t say anything like ”Wiggy, Wiggy, Wiggy, Wiggy, Wiggy,” which I heard continuously during a win streak that night in the casino. Finally, Ms Hilton didn’t say a single thing about me putting her in my book (pg 207).

I understand that a tweet can only be 25 centimeters long, but c’mon, Paris! You could’ve at least mentioned me in a different tweet.

Feeling slighted,

Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian, two bimbos who are "famous for being famous," both started their ascent by making a porn tape that went viral.

Was this one, or two separate videos?

I don't know but it seems like a $30,000 win for someone who has to be worth multiple millions ($100 million?) is not a "big win" really.

http://www.celebritynetworth.com/richest-celebrities/paris-hilton-net-worth

That win increased her net worth by 0.03%

Wow.

In related news, Cletis found a penny in the driveway in front of his 1972 ford pickup truck in the Appalachian Mountains.

Sadly Cletis may be able to buy a "Night in Paris" for the same penny on DVD.

Yawn...


I thought the news story was going to show her winning some crazy hand or say she started with $5 and couldn't lose...
She probably played $10k / hand and won 3 hands and said "That's HOT!" and walked away forgetting her chips

It is interesting to me that people are so enamored of someone whose parents don't even trust to run their business.

Damn...I thought her fifteen minutes were up and she faded back into the background never to be heard from again (not like she will ever run the company business and be famous for astute decisions there...).

Bless her heart...

Biggg Yawwwnn...this is the equivalent of me winning 3 $25 hands and walking away a "big" winner up $75.

P.S.--I found a nickel under my buick today, I'll alert ABC News.

I'm surprised none of you guys recognized spam when you see it:

On the other hand, Glen is something of a friend of the board, so I'd consider it friendly spam.

Or more accurately, self promotion / getting in a free plug....

I'd put it in the same category as when Candy Spelling won ninety grand playing high limit slots at Bellagio.
