Try this the next time you are in the City of Sin try a little test …While you are walking down the street to purchase your next overpriced latte try to pick out who are the tourists, who are the hustlers or what I call denizens of Sin City, who are the genuine whack jobs who believe in the voices and who are the locals caught in the middle of their constant battles. _ and which one are you…

Are you the man dancing in the middle of a Sin City sidewalk shaking his bootie to invisible music just because that one time you got into studio 54 back in 74 never really left you????
Are you the wide eyed family from BFE who innocently asks hotel employees…”Does the Strip close???” or

Are you the clever hustler from Fred’s Cab service who  offers to take the tourists with four first names to a place he knows where they will be served drugged grape juice and wake up without their vacation money….
“Say there Billy Joe Bobby Ray..I know the joint and the girl for you…(I am from Texas so I am allowed to say that)
“Her name is April May you will love her,” he says as he looks at the Rolex on your right wrist…”

Are you the crazy guy who shouts  ….I knew Elvis….I used to make pizza..It is a conspiracy I tell you ….Stayin..Alllliiiiiiiii  iiiiiii iiiive yeah” while standing shirtless on a street corner near a group of guys who were planing to beat your ass for flashing them but turn away because you are a nut bag.

Are you the guy with the mortgage and ambien prescription trudging ….oh never mind

Did you ever take one  of those tests online to see if you which character/creature/ rock star// whatever you are …The following test is designed to see which one of those Sin City archetypes you really are…. Keep track of your answers and your score will be posted in the response or forwarded to you in private Does what happen in Vegas stay in Vegas….
