You Didn’t Have As Bad A Week As The Dude Caught Stealing Coins From An Atlantic City Casino Fountain

At some point in our lives, casinos always get the best of us. One second you’re having a great time sitting at the automatic roulette table while sipping free Heinekens from the cocktail waitress. Next thing you know, you’re broke and begging the pit boss for a buffet comp.

Everyone leaves broke, but some leave more broke than others. Take this guy, for example.

First, Atlantic city brings us the in-casino meth lab, and now comes the fountain thief. I’ll take a wild bet and say that reaching into a fountain to steal coins isn’t the worst thing someone has been caught doing in the city of Boardwalk Empire.

Can you really blame the guy, though? I mean, yes you can, but you have to admit it’s not TOTALLY his fault. If you lost money and then saw some right in front of you — albeit underwater and probably after being wished upon — wouldn’t it cross your mind to take it? It was just sitting there — taunting him — saying, “Take me, shove me in penny slots!” All that was standing between him and his potential salvation was a shallow bit of chlorinated water, and he tossed that H20 aside like it was nothing.

Hey casinos, here’s a novel idea: if you don’t want people stealing money, don’t just leave it there in front of them. If you do, casinogoers are destined to channel their inner Aquaman and do what this fucker was caught on tape doing.

Previously known for being the 4th best improv comedian in the state of New Jersey, he enjoyed a brief career in politics by serving on his fraternity's eboard until a scandal not as bad as the Lewinsky scandal, but more memorable than Whitewater lead to his resignation. Now, he spends his time making God awful jokes in chapter meetings, rooting for a shitty New Jersey hockey team, and serving on the congressional committee set to determine whether Oprah Winfrey should be classified as a cult or a religion.
