My Rant About Results of the Las Vegas Review-Journal Annual “Readers’ Poll”
Give me props.
This year, I made it all the way to page 16. That’s when I finally blew up and burned the newspaper.
By then, I’d had enough.
Of course, I’m talking about the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s annual “Readers’ Poll.” Every year the readers of the city’s biggest newpaper send in their picks for their favorite this and that, which are tallied up and later released as the winners of the “Best of Las Vegas” awards.
Categories include everything from the best dry cleaners to the best Thai food. The guide runs about 50 pages long and covers just about everything you can possibly think of — and then some. And I made it all the way to page 16.
This latest edition of “Talking Points” features my immediate response upon seeing this year’s results for the first time. As you might expect, there’s excessive profanity.
The top video above shows the 32-minute version (shorted from 47 minutes because the battery went dead on my iPad). The lower video below shows the aftermath, which is the newpaper burning in the back yard because I couldn’t stand it, and stormed off in disgust.
