This is a story about an Irishman who went to Las Vegas with a dream, a pocket full of cash and the hope of winning tons of money. Consequently, it’s also a story about profound stupidity. Just like 95% of all Las Vegas stories.
I’d be a hypocrite if I sat here and knocked the guy for blowing a ton of money at a casino, but you have to know when to say when. If you only have $10,000 to your name, $10,000 isn’t the amount of money you can risk. Maybe set your limit at $200 and go as high as $500 if you’re a drunk dipshit at the end of the night. But don’t, under any circumstance, blow your entire wad.
Easy for me to say.
According to the Irish Mirror, blow his entire wad is exactly what this guy did. And because of it, he had to immediately sell his car to fund further stupidity.
The punter, known only as Mark from Co Monaghan, was forced to put his motor up for sale on DoneDeal after spending a bit too much in the first 48 hours of his trip.
His hilarious ad appeared online on Wednesday showcasing the 2007 black Volkswagen Golf for €5,500.
Appealing for “A quick sale”, it reads: “Genuine reason for selling this beaut. I’m with the lads in Vegas and I’m stone broke.
“Thought I was Terrence Big Balls the first two nights and now i’m atein scraps.
“The price of the dollar has my heart broke as well!!
“The car’s a beaut and drives like a Porsche. She gets plenty of attention from the L-A-D-I-E-S as well.
“One woman owner before myself who only ever drove her to the shop and back.”
Tough break. And a shitty, shitty lesson to learn. But the real question here is: Who the hell is Terrence big balls?
