Catholic Church accepts casino chips

#1 Postby Justme » September 13th, 2013, 2:09 am

I truly didn't know this but seemingly there are more churches in the city of Las Vegas, Nv than there are casinos and those who attend Catholic Church have the option of using casino chips in lieu of money. This blew my mind when I first read about it, but If you think about it, it does make sense seeing the time constraints of those on vacation there.

Anyway, they figured out that they needed a central place to send and separate the chips from the various casinos, so they could be taken to the appropriate casino and cash them in. This place, they settled on the Monastery of "Our Lady of Mercy" centered a few miles out of town.

Seeing that those within the monastery upheld their religious devotions during the week, they set up Saturday morning as the time which they would take the chips into town and cash them in at their perspective casinos.

These who were quested to turn them in were called,,,,,,,

Spoiler:
wait,,,,wait,,,,,CHIP MONKS!

LOL Didn't even see it coming. Did you? lol :hilarity: :hilarity: :hilarity:

:laughter:

Makes sense though, Catholicism and casinos: both represent the triumph of hope over rationality.

That is such a profound statement. You should copyright that and sell t-shirts.

Thought there was already a T-shirt with that, but could only find this one:

"Religion - together we can find the cure."

There is a saying about, "The triumph of hope over experience," that is attributed to Boswell, in his book on Samuel Johnson, referring to marriage. Think Nick's is better!
