you can still gamble on which hole the mouse goes in. Just stop by my place after work...and bring plenty root of all evil! Cheese doesn't grow on trees, hoss
Rosco the Rat: I lost many quarters plaything that game.I miss throwing darts at the red and white checkered board with black outlines. I always aimed for black it paid better.
That would be Rosco "the educated rat" if I remember correctly.For those who are less than 40, (maybe 45) the carnies would put the rat under a glass dome on a roulette wheel and spin it. The rat would loose his equilibrium and fall into a numbered hole. Our Wise County youth would predict(not bet of course) which one he would sort of fall into.In today's world, PETA and the ACLU would have an injunction within 24 hours
I guess in 258 pictures taken by a Messenger photographer you would expect to see at least of Andrew Rottner. (yep)
2:16 add to the PETA and ACLU the Baptists, Church of Christs, Assembly of God, Seventh-Day Adventists, Jehovah's Witnesses, Moromons, and/or Pentacostals...
2:22 PM Classic Remark, I assume Little Andy was there
I'm under 40, 6 under to be exact, and I remember Roscoe quite well. It hasn't been THAT long since they took him away. I remember him being there in high school, less than 20 years ago. And it wasn't numbers, it was colors, and he ran and climbed in, not falling. And the bowl was stainless steel, not glass. I guess some over 40 (or 45) should start taking Ginkgo biloba.
Not one picture of the real entertainment!
I remember one time when some Lions Club Members played a prank on one of the older guys by hiding his pipe in Roscoe's bowl.Ol' Bud was fit to be tied when he figured out he'd been had.As for me, I made a bit of coin on Roscoe...
I'm glad they ended the "Roscoe" gambling scheme. Hah, what better place than Reunion to have the exploitation/mistreatment of animals and gambling all in one.
No pics of the kids smoking meth behind the cabins?Poor reporting.
Roscoe!!! I loved that stupid rat! Awww, yes, the old days, where you could gamble out in the open in Wise County.
222 Are you sick? Why would anyone want to waste film on Rottner?? I think Joe did a great job.
