On this week’s show, we announced our Las Vegas poetry contest. Here are the rules and guidelines:

  • Write an original poem about Las Vegas. Any type of poetry is welcome. Haiku, iambic pentameter, sonnet, whatever. Make it rhyme or don’t.
  • Keep it short. You should be able to read it in less than a minute.
  • Be creative. Amuse and entertain us.
  • Bonus points for mentioning Viator, Five Hundy by Midnight and/or familiar Five Hundy references.
