    So I was reading Reddit and saw a page like this and it was pretty damn funny. What is the funniest/craziest/WTF did I just see moment in Vegas?

    Mine is: Me and my brother were walking the strip late at night in front of the fountains. We see this group of young kids and hear this commotion so we go investigate. As we get closer we hear everyone chanting "do it! do it!" When we get there this chick strips down to her bikin, stand on the ledge and cannonbombs right into the Bellagio fountains. She swims around for like 30 seconds then 2 of her guy friends help pull her out. Then everyone disperses like nothing happened.

    So what's yours?

    Staying at the Hard Rock (surprise) one afternoon in the summer I go to the elevators (I'm on like the 10th floor of the HRH Tower) and push the button. A few seconds later the doors open and a pretty 20 something brunette is giving head to a 20 something guy in the elevator and another girl is filming it on her smartphone camera. They all look at me and kinda giggle, move out of the elevator and I assume towards a room. I said something stupid like "have a nice day"... as if they weren't already!

    Some years ago we had a bachelor party in Vegas and I had a Marquee Suite at MGM for the central gathering pad. There were probably at least 15 guys there and one morning after a long night of drinking, strip clubs, and gambling a couple of us go up to the suite after sunrise and all the other guys are sitting there surrounding one random girl. She wanted to be a singer or something and was performing for them, and for some reason was there all alone.

    The sight still cracks me up to this day because it was a room full of fairly dorky dudes sitting quietly watching this cute blonde girl standing in the center belting out a song at like 8am, it was just so friggin random. The other guy and I looked at each other and were like "wtf is going on and what series of events led up to this?".

    The craziest i saw with my own eyes was the big flood of July 1999. I was staying at Monte Carlo and the flood (it was raining so hard in such little time) barreled down the Strip causing havoc and panic. We couldn't leave the property (i was standing in the top steps out front) and we couldn't believe what was happening. The Strip was at a stand still, but after a couple of hours it was safe enough to venture out and for the most part it was business as usual.

    The funniest thing i saw in Vegas was a guy actually slipping on a banana peel.....LOL. In front of the Dunes on his way in to the Casino. Some idiot must have discarded it after finishing and the guy (i was a few feet behind him) slipped and fell. He was more embarrassed that hurt, and when i got back up to my room i started giggling profusely.

    While watching the Sirens of the TI show three drunk guys get an idea to jump the fence and get this boat that was on the other side of the canal. I was thinking please do this it might make for a better show. They did and swam across the canal and got in the boat. They started towards the pirate ship when security got them. I guess I will never see that again since they are building some shops.:cry:

    I was there during the '99 floods and saw them pulling many cars out of CP underground parking garage. When they opened the doors, water poured out.

    It's been over a decade, but I remember spotting an elderly gent, clad in a terrycloth bathrobe, playing blackjack a few tables down from me in the Golden Nugget one evening. It was obvious, as he kept "adjusting" his robe, that the robe was all he had on! Judging from the many glances and giggles, he was noticed my many, yet I was surprised that he was permitted to play for almost an hour before a much better dressed casino executive asked him to depart and change into something more appropriate. I can't help but wonder if an attractive woman, similarly attired, would also have been asked to leave. I sure hope not!

    My wife and I have seen many crazy things in Vegas, but just this week at PH may take the cake. We had just gotten up from a BJ table and saw this incredibly gorgeous woman about 30 walking towards us. She was dressed in a sheer black top with a "U" cut out of the front. No bra. As she came around the tables, we then got to see she had on black panties and thigh high leather boots. Nothing else. As she passed, we caught the real show stopper. She was carrying a leather whip in her left hand and a leash in her right hand. Behind her was an old guy of 65+ with a collar on and the leash attached to his collar. He was wearing a black rubber shirt with cutouts and metal shorts with locks on each side. He was carrying her purse. My wife and I started to follow them when they stopped in the middle of the casino, he bent down, kissed her boots, she slapped him, and off they went. We have seen plenty of this at "events", but never on the main floor of a casino.

    I've told this before.....but for those who haven't read it ----
    *
    *
    Sahara Casino ( many years ago )
    Place was packed...middle of the night.
    *
    I'm taking a break - sitting at a slot machine,drinking, facing
    the main center aisle of the casino....people watching.
    I see a guy really staggering up the aisle -
    He sees an empty wheelchair at the crap trable --
    the wheelchair owner was throwing the dice ( standing at the rail ).
    The drunk guy plops himself down into the chair and
    proceeds to piss his pants.....his pants were white before he pee'd.
    ( I guess, he thought he was sitting on the crapper ?):evillaugh
    The drunk guy finishes.....stands up, wobbling, pants completely wet -
    and staggers off.
    Wheelchair owner is still throwing the dice -- never saw what happenned --
    but now has a piss wet seated wheelchair.
    AND I WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO WITNESSED THE ENTIRE THING !
    *
    Funniest damn thing I ever saw in Vegas !:evillaugh
    *
    *
    Next night at same Sahara Casino.
    I'm playing at the crap table and the entire table ( of guys )
    is looking over at the main bar -- where a hooker in a short mini skirt
    is sitting up on a bar chair with her "salad" in full view !
    Why wear undies ?
    *
    *
    One last one -
    I'm playing bar VP at the casino ( before it was Hooters - name escapes me )
    A hooker slides up next to me.......small talking me......
    She goes silent for a minute or two --
    then suddenly shakes her head and asks me "Where am I ?"
    I told her she was at The Luxor.:evillaugh

    One evening we were watching for the volcano at Mirage to erupt and we spotted a rat.

    So we went to the lobby and told one of the clerks working there. She pretty much freaked out and called Security.

    "THERE'S A RAT IN THE VOLCANO!"

    Was Security gonna arrest the rat??

    A year ago last August I was staying at Bally's. On the way to my room at the end of the hall was a couple, late 60s or early 70s of Asian Indian heritage looking nervous and having whispered discussion. The man was kind of standing strange and pulling on his Hawaiian shirt.

    "Is everything all right?" I asked.

    "The door closed as my husband was helping me bring something into the room and he dropped our key inside and the door closed." She said. Then I noticed the guy wouldn't look at me but had this sheepish grin. He only had on skimpy underpants beneath his shirt. I found their son who had a key and his family at the Paris pool and their kids and grandkids simply lost it when hearing grandpa's story.

    My craziest memory in Las Vegas was back in 2012 when me and my friends were playing Pai Gow Poker for $10,- a hand at the Bellagio.

    It was somewhere around the graveyard shift, no one else was playing. We asked the Pitboss if it was okay to bet $10,- a hand instead of $25,-, he said yes no problem. I was new to the game so I was a little slow in making my hands but after a while I got the strategy.

    Suddenly a mid 30s man on a mobilty scooter shows up, gets out of his scooter and jumps to a open seat next to us. The dude threw a $25k Bellagio chip to the dealer and he got some $5k's and yellow $1k's from the dealer. While we were betting $10,- a hand, the man decided to bet around $2k a bet, it went on like this for only 5 minutes, he was up around $6k, colored up, leaves, jumped on his mobility scooter again and drove away.

    We sat there being just flabbergasted, played on for a bit and then left knowing we had one hell of a story to tell to our families... just LOL :thumbsup:

    Only in Vegas I guess!? To be a part of something like this, I immediately understand how big the difference is between people like that and the poor man who is selling bottles of water for $1, crazy and different worlds, you almost can't imagine.

    At the Tropicana’s pool area there is a pedestrian tunnel about 25' long that runs under a manmade rock formation. I was going through there late at night in December of 1998 when the outdoor temperature was down in the 20s. In the tunnel I met up with a nearly fully clothed couple who were having sex in there. I just walked right by them and not a word was said.

    Craziest thing? On my very first visit in about 1996, a friend of mine told me, "If you want to see how crazy Vegas can get, look for this: a person using oxygen, SMOKING, in a casino." I thought I'd never see that. We were staying at IP, and right across from the check-in desk was a guy in a scooter, on oxygen, smoking a cigarette and playing three slots at once.

    On another visit, the new Stat rides had been installed, and I was far north on the Strip and was checking them out from the ground. The X-Scream was hanging over the edge, and I thought, "those guys are nuts." (I'm very, very much not a thrill ride person.) About ten minutes later, I notice the thing is all the way out...again? Or...still? I started looking up regularly, and it seemed to be the latter: it was STILL extended and was staying extended. It was still out quite a while later. I was later told that, in the middle of a ride, the power system had failed! So riders were stuck out there I forget how long.

    Edit: Here it is. 2005 sounds right. Six riders stuck for 90 minutes after the power to the Strat and several others goes out due to a problem with power lines. Doesn't have manual hydraulics to retract it. I'm surprised there was no back-up power, generator or something.

    Funniest has to be split, too. Two of these were a sad kind of amusing. Anyone remember the Leapfrog Fountains in front of the Stardust? One morning I saw one of the circular covers flipped up/open. A guy was on his back, sprawled out, his middle partly submerged, out cold, surrounded by about fifteen of those plastic "yard of ale" slush-drink containers, all (mostly) empty.

    Last year, while passing one of the costumed characters (this one, Garfield, sprawled out on the curb, acting drunk, with an empty bottle in hand - I saw several of them doing this, having put really dirty clothing over the existing costume to make it look more like a wino) I watched a group of middle-aged men and women passing by, talking - and they didn't seem to be drunk. Suddenly one of the men hops into the planter, puts his hands in the air and begins doing silent pelvic thrusts behind Garfield's head, while his group titters and snaps photos. Garfield is oblivious. He hops down, nobody tips Garfield, and they keep walking and talking.

    All-out funny goes to my 2nd trip, uh, maybe 1996 or 97? Was walking through, I think, IP with my family, and a voice comes over the casino-wide intercom: "Mike Hunt to the front desk, you have a call, Mike Hunt tooooo...." The voice trails off as if he realized he'd just been pranked. I really can't believe somebody fell for that, but they did.

    One more that comes to mind: while on our balcony at IP (same trip) I talked with another teen on a nearby balcony. He told me, "People think they're safe from the porn-slappers in their rooms, but they're wrong." He had somehow collected a big stack and was folding them, then throwing them off, and they'd sail down like a boomerang and land on other balconies. So several people probably heard a "whap" outside and found porn cards waiting.

    While I think there is no funnier story than the Hurricane Mikey "Teef" story I like to think I have one or two gems to add to this thread.

    One trip back when the Gold Spike was a place where 'ner dowells hung out and the casino actually had machines that took copper pennies I was playing BJ at one of their 2 dollar minimum tables. The table was mostly full and it was me, and and a few other gentleman one of which you could tell was in between homes. The guy was sitting with 15 stacks of red chips in front of him about the size of a beer bottle. Apparently he had been playing for hours upon hours and had initially bought in for 20 dollars. I saw down and bought in for 20 myself playing 2 bucks a pop. The man smelled awful to begin with but he wasn't so repulsive that he'd make you choke. Until about 35 minutes when he started to shimmy shimmy shimmy like he had to go to the bathroom. The other folks at the table started to notice this too but this guy was on such a winning streak of epic proportions he didn't want to get up even though we told him they'd cover his chips and his spot for him while he went to the loo. Sure enough he pissed his pants and he was escorted to the cage, 86'd from the casino and told not to return until he had changed clothes. He must of had a few hundred dollars worth of reds in front of him when he popped. I couldn't help but laugh about it after the inital shock of watching a man soil himself wore off.

    This next one involves me since I had a few drinks in me, I bought one of the porn slapper shirts for 20 bucks, collected a stack of porn cards, and began handing them out on the strip to people. I was with my friends who were trying to act like they didn't know who I was while I handed people cards saying things like "She'll suck your balls for a dollar too" and "She tastes just like candy...I would know! She just started last week" I thought it was hilarious. Of course I was half tempted to scream "INS" in side of a pocket of one of them but ended up just running to catch up to my friends who were harriedly trying to ditch me.

    There are tons of stories like this in the city of las vegas. This has only been two of them!

    I love the porn slapper tale. I once tried to hand a porn slapper one of the cards, and he gave me a really angry glare.

    On one occasion, late at night, I was bored, so I got hold of a plastic bag and decided to take every card I could find. I started by TI. I emptied the bands full of cards around light poles. They'd lay pairs of them every few feet on the hedges, wedge long rows of them into fences or bus stops, I took every card a guy handed me, I asked a few of them to give me as many as they would. Jackpot was when I saw a guy on a bike passing out stacks of cards, and one slapper took one block and stashed the rest in some bushes; I took those, too.

    I was collecting in front of Bellagio (they stick them in the ash rings on the garbage cans and behind the lips of the speaker grilles - I haven't seen that done for a few years now) when I ran into a guy and girl who were coming the other way with a bag full, hurriedly grabbing all the cards. I asked if it was just for fun, and they quickly told me they were on a scavenger hunt, in which each pair had to get as many cards as they could in a set time, something like an hour. I had at least five times as many as they did, and I handed them my bag. They were ecstatic. I hope they won.
