ELK tells the pokies where to go

By johnboy - 27 March 2013 33

pokies

Local street art legend ELK has been given a free kick by the makers of poker machines Aristocrat entertainment.

And he’s duly dispatched them through the posts.

Hope he didn’t need the $9,500.

Thanks S4anta. Although $9500 would come in real handy right now, integrity comes first. Coming from someone who has personally seen lives ruined and families torn apart by poker machines, this email was never going to be recieved well.

That was great!

Gambling certainly seems to be out of favour at the moment and that is a fantastic thing IMO.

What a dribble.

How hard us it to simply say no thanks, I don’t want to support the gambling industry?

Way to stick it to the man (or mid level pleb doing their completely legal job).

Is there any chance of a non-squinty version of this pic?

You could try reading the instructions in the OP.

I’m having problems as well. Have followed the link, but the zoom button is greyed out. Is it just me?

ELK, While I agree with your sentiments on poker machines entirely, there was no need to attack the sender of the email personally. All you have done is to make yourself look a little childish.

Saying “no, I’m not interested, and for these reasons” would have been far more grown up.

The best advice I can give you is go home tonight and take a very good look in the mirror…

Great work, ELK. If RA had a positive version of the Mully Cup I’d nominate you.

Further to my last comment, I’m wondering how many people that think this is great, visit pubs, buy alcoholic drinks or heaven forbid, smoke cigarettes?

Would they be cheering on someone who said similar things to their local bartender or grog shop attendant? How about a worker at a supermarket selling cigarettes?

I agree with RadioVK’s comment.

Not with me, it isn’t. But it does seem to be suffering some sort of politically-correct backlash. Slots, in particular.

Society has managed to focus on the low-single-digit percentage of punters – intelligent, sentient humans – who develop “gambling problems”, and somehow conclude that the machines are culpable. Were they not available, these people would simply feed their problem elsewhere.

For the other (let’s say) 97% of punters, it’s just shits and giggles. And a small mountain of voluntary taxation.

Apologies if this rant is way off-context, but I could scarcely read the OP either.
