Heads I win, tails you lose…

July 29, 2009

Blog Guy, I just lost a bunch of money to a guy flipping coins, and I can’t figure out how he did it. He beat me every time!

Let me guess. Was he playing, “Heads I win, tails you lose?”

Yes! I can’t figure out what went wrong!

Well, this is not generally a good phrase to agree to in the world of wagering. As a helpful illustration, look at these two guys in the photos.

After an hour of gambling, the one who was saying “Heads I win, tails you lose” is blazing away with two machine guns, looking like Rambo and about to leave with several gorgeous chicks wearing stiletto heels.

He is standing on the other guy, whom we will call the loser. That dude has bricks broken around him, tire tracks on his face, and no shirt.

Yikes. Is that all that happened to the poor shirtless guy?

Nope. The hot shell casings from those guns have to be coming down somewhere, don’t they?

Wait, where are the ‘gorgeous chicks wearing stiletto heels’…

GD! I fell for it again!

Apparently, they are expecting the parade route to be littered with bodies. I wonder if there will be horses in the parade, and how will they train for that?

This can only be a simulated “boarding party.” They have to practice wasting Somali pirates and apparently expect to sustain casualties doing so.

Seriously, this must be one heck of a parade.
