Dr. Shiboubou Live in Five - Vegas Wrapup

I love a happy ending.

Looks like a visit to The Seat at the Four Queens.


Things were looking pretty grim when my cousin (whose name I barely know, apparently) Dr. Shiboubou was burrowing into a plate of Consolation Poutine.

If this is poutine, it's a pretty badly made one.
I know where this is from the table. Binions.

And then the good news came rolling in!




Way to go!!!!

Great way to end the trip. :)


Thanks for sending the pics Raoul, and thanks for forgiving my getting your name wrong for the past 37 years or so.

Dr. Shiboubou Today in Vegas Live - From Jackpots to "We might have to eat Lucky the Penguin'

Sometimes a few pictures are all you need to get the vibe of what happened on a particular day in Las Vegas.

For example, we start out with this nice little hit by Dr. Raoul, my Penguin Ranching cousin.

$300 for the team!

Uh ohhhhhhh....



Hey, I recognize buffet-stolen cream cheese and crackers (aka lunch).


For dinner, we have a fine selection of Emergency Nuts, Punishment Cheese, Squeeze-n-eat Real Mayo Space Food Snax, Heinz Tomato Soup Mix, and Mustard, which isn't good for much on its own. I prefer my mustard courageous anyway, not that Yellow Mustard.


I have a feeling the Dr. is staying in tonight and enjoying his Punishment Cheese and some engaging Shopping Channel highlights.

Dr. Shiboubou Today in Vegas - in an Average of Five Photos

I'm sure you noticed that nobody associated with the Flusher blog can count. Fortunately, that sort of thing never has an impact on gambling.

The Penguin Product Prince, Dr. Raoul Shiboubou, is live in Vegas and keeping me guessing with these rather disparate images. That's disparate, not desperate.

On the other hand, I've seen precious little casino action - could he have blown through the entire bankroll?

Let's have a look at what's shakin' and bakin' in Vegas today-kin.


The crew has been out and about and away from the city, I would say - taking in some tourist traps. 

And magenta livestock.


What else could a riverboat in Nevada be called except the Desert Princess?

And a quick google and now I know where Raoul was - Lake Mead aka the Hoover Dam.


Good thing Steely Dan didn't see this before writing Black Cow.
I wonder what grade of meat a purple cow would have? Probably sub-sub-utility. I wonder if this was taken near the Heifer Dam?

Dr. Shiboubou Today in Vegas in Five Photos - Company?

Well, well, well, it looks like the Dr. has made an appointment with romance - or at least a big-ass buffet.

But first things first, everybody knows you have to have wheels if you are going to make some time (notwithstanding that you may have only one thin dime) - and it looks like Alamo has really come through with an amazing downgrade - to a mileage inclusive stagecoach.


From what I can tell, Raoul has been on the strip today - thus the aforementioned romance. This looks like dinner for two, from what I can suss out.


The appearance of Player Card numbers (dutifully obfuscated) tell me that this sweet buffet nosh was comped all the way. I'm guessing MyVegas. Nicely eaten, sir, nicely eaten.

Just like yesterday, my cousin was in search of some giant pussy.

Don't blame me folks, I just post the photos around here.

Dr. Shiboubou Five Photos - Vegas Money Management


Dr. Raoul Shiboubou, live from Vegas, taunting me with photos of the Luxor pool complex, which is looking pretty good.

And on closer look, it isn't Luxor at all.

You really have to love the Aztec pyramid at the apex of 'pool fun central', where kids can enjoy the waterslide by day, and when the sun goes down, watch in horror at the cascade of crimson sluicing into the pool, as beating hearts are ripped live out of human sacrifices on the sacred altar at the top let Mom and Dad have a pop in the hot tub while they watch Netflix in the room.

My cousin Raoul has a unique money management system for handling the inevitable ups and downs of casino gambling. No matter what money he wins, he manages to lose it all back.
