    Browsing eBay for Las Vegas memorabilia and came across a polo short from the Hamnigo, Las Vegas.

    Evidently he doesn't know a lot about Las Vegas (lives in the Ozarks) and thought the the "Fl" in Flamingo looked like an "H". The mistake is repeated throughout in the auction. In all fairness, it does look a lot like Hamingo.

    he/she thinks very highly of the "slightly used" shirt considering the $16.39 price plus the cost of shipping ;)

    Yeah, seems high for what it is. I'm not going to buy it, but then I need XL anyway.

    Now that's pretty funny. He may be watching this thread though. He resubmitted the auction spelled correctly.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/FLAMINGO-LAS-VEGAS-CREAM-POLO-SHIRT-CASINO/121403824710?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D24192%26meid%3Dbc2a23bebfa14552be6ab290e286e6fc%26pid%3D100005%26prg%3D10284%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D121403824694&rt=nc

    And I love my Flamingo t-shirt (not the same design, obv)! Got it for $4 in the gift shop after getting a dealt royal flush there that night! :thumbsup: Thinking he'll get $17 is ridiculous though.

    oh crap, it's not real?! :haha: I thought it was a repeat of the Trader Vic's Las Vegas vs. the Trader Dick's in Sparks (which I now read on Yelp that it has closed :( ) . Oh well...

    No, it's real. Both links lead to auctions of the same shirt. What would be funny if he got buyers on both...then what?

    He listed it AGAIN? I thought he just edited the same auction.

    Boggles the mind...
