Is this heaven? No it’s the Riverside Casino and Gold Resort south of Iowa City February 26, 2008

Iowan Neil Jorgensen (Scandi alert) was fired for asking casino management to “hook” him up. He apparently figured it was all part of the buffet experience that should have been included with his free lodgings and meal.

IB Legal Department? I think Mr. Jorgensen needs some help. These do not strike me as phrases that would help a judge see you in a favorable light (or argue in favor of Mensa membership):

  • “The advertisement is that it’s just like Las Vegas, so I thought I was in Las Vegas.”
  • “Gamblers have been allowed to continue gambling after they’ve urinated on the blackjack table standing in full public view,” he testified. “I think there’s a little dual standard here.”
  • “I was absolutely plowed.”

Actually, I kind of like the last one. It shows salt-of-the-earthness honesty. I’m ready to cut him some slack.

(Unless he voted for Huckabee.)

The Vegas defense won’t work, because prostitution is illegal in our two largest counties (Clark and Washoe, homes of Las Vegas and Reno, respectively).

That means you’re either supposed to pretend she’s an escort or private model or something, or drive to Pahrump, in Nye County.

Jorgensen: “The advertisement is that it’s just like Pahrump, so I thought I was in Pahrump.”

Judge: “I will not tolerate that type of language in my court room.”

I didn’t get a Pahrump outta that guy.
