When the chips are down, in Wackytown
Say, Blog Guy, I keep reading about those group tours you organize to that place you call Wackytown, the goofiest place on earth.
Right, that’s Krasnoyarsk, in Siberia. Think you’d like to join us on a trip? We’ve got a gambling junket coming up. Why waste your time in Las Vegas when you can go to a Wackytown casino?
Gambling, huh? That sounds like fun, but I also like to keep fit when I’m on vacation.
Then this is the place for you! You can go right from the slopes to the casino without even taking off your ski mask, as you can see here!
Plus, they encourage patrons to take breaks for calisthenics, under the close supervision of personal trainers. Look at these folks doing crunches and sit-ups.
Wait just a bleeping minute. Are you INSANE, Blog Guy? Those are cops arresting gamblers in those pictures. That’s a fricking police RAID!
Oh. Well, it’s just like our travel slogan says, “What happens in Krasnoyarsk may not necessarily happen to you…”
