Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner

There is a phrase that you will occasionally hear that goes, "winner, winner, chicken dinner".  This refers to the old days in Las Vegas, Nevada when a chicken dinner consisting of 3 pieces of chicken, potatoes and a vegetable cost $1.79.  Since the average bet back then was $2.00, if you won, you would have enough money to buy a chicken dinner.  Angel Zoom Smokey, who happens to LOVE chicken, said that Las Vegas must have been a wonderful place to visit back then because she would buy a chicken dinner if she won anyway.  In fact, dogs think that the humans are silly about the whole "money" concept.  You can't eat it or play with it so who needs it?  Yet so many of the humans are obsessed with it.  Angel Zoom Smokey has a point.  Winning a chicken dinner does make more sense!  Bring on the chicken, and put some bacon on top.  Chicken and bacon:  always a winning combination.
