Played this once at the Bullagio. Lost some, won some, lost the rest.

Not a game to double down in.

...and as their economy and society crumbles around them, the Americans divert themselves by playing Bull Poker...

From that first link, I think it's pretty safe to assume they didn't consult with their lawyers or insurance companies before setting this up. Bad Idea Jeans.

Jeez I think after playing that I'd need a royal flush.

And, I meant the bull stuff, not Navelgazer, but both may be true... :)

"You gotta be pretty far behind in your alimony to need $400 that bad . . . "

Priceless.

Classic line from the first link: "It never crossed my mind at the time that there would be any danger involved..."

Sitting on a plastic chair whilst being charged by a 400lb bull? Of course, no danger involved at all.

At least it's more exciting than cow bingo.

I was voting for the bull - every time.

Or their brains.

That last link is bullshit. The guys were standing up and getting out of the way while holding their chairs, and then sit down again.

Wusses.

Seriously, her saying that about the danger....


Best of the web.

I haven't ever been that broke, but when I wanna gamble and include animals, I play Chicken Shit Bingo.

Agreed on that last link. That was lame.

And, wait a minute, they don't even have any cards! Shenanigans.

That's the stupidest fucking thing I've ever seen. (Besides Congress, that is.)

Double that weight plus change.
It was freakin crazy to let volunteers from the audience play in that first link, the guys that thought that one up should have thought again.
I do look forward to august when we have the rodeo come to town. the big PBR show is cool but the free daytime local cattleworkers competition is great, I get in free, bring my own beer, and just watch the riders ride.

The way that dude in the first link tries to smooth back the bit of his head that's peeled away, as though it were loose bit of hair, had me laughing in a kind of why-am-I-laughing-at-this-horror kind of way.
It gives new meaning to the term 'cow lick'.

This one, which i don't think was linked, is strange. The guy gets up, waves his chair to taunt the bull, sits down face-to-face with the charging bull, and immediately gets plowed under.
