    "Point me towards the loosest slots in town," Hicks said waving a sign that read "Rum & Coke over here, NOW." "Can't drop no brats off at my place if I ain't there to open the door!"
    Angry shouts of "screw the baby- I needs a new pair of shoes" echoed up and down the strip, from the Luxor to the Stratosphere, all weekend long.
    Some 25 hundred of the deadbeat dads arived en masse on Freedom Busses, chartered from Taos NM. The common bonds of shoddy parenting and alchoholism quickly integrated the negligent fathers.

    No... the Onion is a satirical site.

    And while I love the stories, they probably belong in the Humor section.
