I Can Has Check-Raise?

Wednesday, February 20th, 2008, 11:48 am

I’m sure most of you are familiar with I Can Has Cheezburger, a site where people post pictures of cats (mostly cats) with funny captions. I guess it’s also known as  "Lolcats" and if your humor runs to the cute and cloying and kitteh, you might enjoy it as I do.

The reason I bring this up is that they’re running a Poker Cats contest. Post a picture (you can either submit your own or pick a stock one they provide) with some poker angle and if you get the most votes you’ll win 2 nights in Vegas and $500 in spending money. Which would be just about enough to pay for an afternoon at the Geisha Bar (hookers included) or an all-night Pai Gow bender. It doesn’t say which hotel the winner will be staying at…I’m betting it’s not the Bellagio. But still, with the pimping power of the pokerblogging community I figured that if someone out there gets inspired and posts a pic they’d have a ready bloc of voters.

I don’t think I’ll be submitting an entry, as I’m not too keen on felines these days. Ernie the Cat and I are engaged in our own little brand of trench warfare–he refuses to let me sleep past 6AM, I refuse to recognize his right to exist on this planet. Tensions are high all along the border.
