Casino Asks Stinky Poker Player To Leave

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Yes, Michael Wax stunk. He`s the first to admit it. The 440-pound Brooklyn man said he was playing poker in an Atlantic City casino for 17 hours Tuesday and didn`t have time to clean up. He understands why grossed-out gamblers complained about his body odor, but said he didn`t deserve stinky treatment from the casino that asked him to leave."

Quotation from The Associated Press/Wayne Parry

It`s an indisputable fact that obese individuals sweat more than normal persons. A 440 pound man should take at least three showers every day, and apply underarm deodorant on an hourly basis.

A fat dude who`s been playing poker for 17 hours is going to stink like a pig, and common courtesy for his fellow poker players dictates that he take frequent showers.

The porky gentleman had an unfair advantage, he probably couldn`t detect his own foul odor, but the other players must have had a hard time concentrating on the game.

In a casino teeming with security personnel and cameras the patrons are obliged to act with decorum, but if that stinky corpulent creep was playing poker in a bar, the other players would have beat the holy hell out of him.

Wax has the nerve to demand an apology for the casino; he`s the one who should apologize to the other customers.
