    If a tree goes on strike in the middle of a forest and no one hears it, did it really go on strike?

    When those freeloaders go on strike, can people still give them tips?

    If they lose the strike, will the non-union element replace them?

    If any freeloader crosses the picket line, can we turn them in to the strikers so they can be beaten with 2X4's and baseball bats? (can you imagine diaper man beating a Spartan warrior? Or spongebob swatting the ass of the huge lady with a thong and duct tape on her man-tits?)

    If they win the strike, would the Fremont Experience allow them to ride the zip lines in celebration? Would the tip minimums be raised to meet Federal minimum standards for minimum wages? Would they be eligible for COLA allowances?

    Do they do active recruitment into the Union? I have family members who are good at doing nothing so I figure they might as well join that Union....

    Hate to see what their replacements are going to be.
    If this does happen, we might go downtown again!!

    If they really did strike, I think VMBers should register and book all the circles at key times and sit there in a lawn chair drinking a beer with a sign that says "keep your money, I'm fine".

    To all the VMBers who responded to this thread--LMAO. Thanks. A few years ago on Fremont street I was being chased by a ventriloquist and his dummy in a wheelchair. I Tried to ignore him finally told him to get the hell away from me or I was going to hurt him. I probably used a few unlady like words. I know a lot of people like downtown. I have tried but every time we go to Fremont Street I feel like I need to bathe in bleach using a Brillo pad to scrub.

    You need to buy an access pass to the secret tunnels that connect all the Fremont properties. I've said too much already.

    Someone should do this anyway. Folks might just bring you all the beer you could drink, in appreciation.

    Now you can just hold a sign that says. "Thanks to me you dont have to look at an old man in a banana hammock or a fat woman wearing pasties." I think that's worth a $1 from every person passing by.

    As to the secret tunnels I thought they all started at the Tropicana. :wink

    I think the bottom line here is if all of the "performers" would somehow just go away, there would be very few complaints!

    "Replacement players" from Hollywood Blvd. and Times Square are on standby, just in case! Will there be enough alternate Bumblebees and Minions to serve Vegas? Only "kick-me-in-the-crotch" dude knows for sure!

    Tip: DO NOT make eye contact with this dude. Like others he will zoom in on you and start primping and preening in front of you, will even follow you for a while. At the very least he will stare you down, smiling and leering at you.

    Stuff for nightmares.

    You think its bad now, wait until they go on strike and the scabs fill in for them.
