The Worst Promo I Have Ever Seen In My Life

While sifting through a few websites trying to find a great deal in Vegas, I found myself on the site of El Cortez, Downtown Vegas.

If I was on the fence about booking a stay at that hotel this jewel would definitely be a deal closer. If this doesn’t persuade you to want to go nothing will:

It took me 15 mins to stop laughing.

Nothing says you’re a real superstar more than $1 ice cream bar.

But then just when I wiped away the tears of laughter and picked myself off the floor, I read it again and continued to last part, which was easily my favorite….

Human Repetitive Nature

The other day, I was walking down the street to run an errand near my job. I ended up at a red stop light, pressed the pedestrian button, and patiently waited. This guy walks up next to me and stands to my right. He then walks around me to my left and presses the same button.

I sarcastically think to myself “now why didn’t I think of that?”.

He walks back to my right and about five seconds later, returns to the button….
