LAS VEGAS, NV輸 gambling-addiction study by researchers at UNLV's Gaming Studies Research Center has "gotten way out of hand," sources close to the project reported Monday.

"Just one more sample group," said study director Robert Layton, nervously snapping the clasp of his lucky clipboard. "I have a hunch about this batch, a real hunch. I think it's gonna be a honey."

I'm reading it, and laughing my butt off, thinking, "Is this for real?"

And then I noticed the source....

very good. You can count on the Onion! No report though on "the Hoax that is the expected Grant to continue the studies on Gambling addiction"

Part of the problem with the study can be explained in the accompanying photo:

The caption says the UNLV team is studying BlackJack.

The gamblers in the photo are playing Seven Card Stud.

Yes, The Onion is well known for their brand of sarcasm.

My favorite line, at the end:

"Seven-eleven! Seven-come-eleven!" said Stangel, pausing to let Fancy Nancy blow on the disc. "Daddy needs a new paradigmatic skew!"

I like reading an article or two from them every now and then. I can't get through an entire newspaper though. Sensory overload I suppose.

Funny stuff.
