2011 World Series of Twitter Day 8 - Cartman, Nilla Wafers, and Vaginas
Day 8 of the World Series of Twitter reminded us why pawn shops are great places to shop, fat people are unbluffable, and Google algorithms need work.
PokerStars is in Seat 9 today. Had they not already paid back US players, the following tweet may have sent the online poker world into utter panic:
PokerStars There will be a server restart in about 20 minutes. Grab your life jackets and get ready to go over board.
Insert your Full Tilt - Absolute Poker/UB joke here.
I asked the poker world which would happen first, Full Tilt paying back US players or Phil Hellmuth earning a bracelet at the 2011 WSOP.
From Seat 8, Phillip Meadows replied with the following:
PhilDes24 @compncards @WSOP @FullTiltPoker I'll take Option 3: Santa Clause, the Easter Bunny, and Cartman make the November 9!
So, to summarize, at the final table we will have an old man that likes to sneak into kids houses at night, eat their cookies, and leave gifts. Also, we have a rabbit that likes to paint eggs and leave them for kids.
Finally, we have a loud obnoxious 8 year old who calls everyone hippies and likes pot pies. Yup, pretty standard final table if you ask me.
In Seat 7, Lara Miller has exposed a flaw in the Google ads algorithm:
Lara_Miller I accidentally Googled "People having sex outdoors" and now Amazon keeps sending me lawn and garden product recommendations.
I guess this gives new meaning to trimming the bush eh?
Brad Willis reminds us from Seat 6 that pawn shops are more than just places to fund your blackjack habit:
_otis_ Just had to dodge a man leaving a pawn shop, pushing a baby stroller...with a TV in it.
You can find anything at a pawn shop. Right T.J?
Tatjana Pasalic comes in at Seat 5 and tells us about her flight back to London.
Tattytats Just got off the sickest flight to Lndn. Two women had fits, they wanted to turn the plane back, Jesus was called for...madness.
The two ladies must have tried to cash out from Full Tilt. Why call for Chris Ferguson? Seems like Phil Ivey would be the guy to call on about that.
Stacey Lynn is in Seat 4 and has a song stuck in her head:
lasvegaspokers Why the hell would I have the Smurfs theme song stuck in my head?!?!?
Talking to yourself is the first sign of insanity. Hearing the Smurfs theme in your head is the first sign of ... my walking away from you slowly.
Jeff aka Hooch474 makes yet another final table and today comes from Seat 3. Some people have more on their minds than just poker:
Hooch474 ..Staring intently at my opponent, eating her cracker..I asked "how much do you have behind"...She brought forth a sleeve of Nilla wafers..
Fold! She holds all the cookies!!! Your two pair is no good!!
Kevin MacPhee shares some sound strategy from Seat 2:
KevinMacPhee Mental note: don't 3 bet fat people light
That's right son. We just might have to put the heavy on you.
Kim Shannon joins the final table today from Seat 1. She shares a true fact of life:
kimshannon Fact: 93% of the problems in my life are indirectly related to my vagina.
As opposed to 98% of men's problems being directly or indirectly related to their penis, she is in good shape.
That's your final table for today folks. Come back tomorrow as I try and find a way to incorporate monkeys, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, and a fez into one post without commenting on Doctor Who.
It should be fun!
