I Did Not Know This

I truly did not know this:

Las Vegas churches accept gambling chips!

This may come as a surprise to those of you not living in Las Vegas , but there are more catholic churches than casinos.

Not surprisingly, some worshipers at Sunday services will give casino chips rather than cash when the basket is passed.

Since they get chips from many different casinos, the churches have devised a method to collect the offerings.

The churches send all their collected chips to a nearby Franciscan monastery for sorting and then the chips are taken to the casinos of origin and cashed in.

This is done by the chip monks.


Thankya, thankyaverramuch.

That was a long run for a short slide, Rusty.

I'm ashamed to say I was totally taken in. :-)

That's OK, Les, so was I. Paul's just mad because he was, too. =P
