How fantastically outrageous, I want one! It will suit my own gargantuan proportions.

Also reminded me about how much a girl I once knew was looking forward to her first trip to London - then she found out "Big Ben" was a clock.........
In case you have to think about that one too much, it was the same girl who was equally disappointed when she queued 3 hours to see "Free Willy" - then she found out it was a film about whales.

Was that the same girl who was half way to Ireland before she found out a 14" Murphy was a TV?

I've never seen one of those over here.
Is that The Ruffler we all know, or just a coincidence?

I was in Cork, Ireland about 5 years ago. I was trying to buy some machines from a fairground man and he was trying to give me four of these for free. They were massive. I did not take them and got no machines from him. The day was a total loss.

Sounds like the start of a lyric
There was a man from Cork who tried to unload some &*%$......
In the US these would be standard fair in Casino, in fact they go even bigger.

I spent a lot of my childhood in Cork and first slot machine memories was on the travelling fairs and their slots I use to play. These were small affairs going around small towns and villages, but were popular as in 1971 there was little for kids to do in these places..
