We Thought You Were Kidding!
Veronica Corningstone: 'I told you that I wanted to be an anchor. I told you that.'
Ron Burgundy: "I thought you were kidding! I thought it was a joke, I even wrote it down in my diary. 'Veronica had a very funny joke today.' I laughed at it later that night!"
After hearing that Erica "Allen" Schoenberg (at right) defeated Anna Wroblewski heads-up to win a $2,500 NLH prelim event at the Mandalay Bay Poker Championship, we didn't believe it. Couldn't happen. Two women competing for a title in a non-WPT-Ladies-Night event? Impossible.
Then, we checked out Poker Pages again this morning, figuring they'd fix the error. However, much to our dismay, the results remained the same. Then we called the Mandalay Bay poker room and said, "Excuse us. We found the most hilarious practical joke the other day on Poker Pages. It said that Erica Schoenberg, a woman, beat Anna Wroblewski, a woman, heads-up to win a poker tournament. A NON women's only poker tournament. Are we being PUNK'D?"
When they informed us we weren't being PUNK'D, we then proceeded to rip our houses apart, trying to find what was surely a hidden camera somewhere. "Wow, Kutcher is really getting us this time. He's taking this joke far. Too far."
About $980,000 in what will now be home renovations later, we still weren't convinced. Then, we looked out the window and saw Jesus himself riding a white horse with a sword in hand from the sky, and immediately thought three things: 1) Wow, looks like Erica did defeat Anna heads-up for a poker title, 2) we better write this post quick, and 3) too bad we never got to see Erica's strip poker DVD with Carmen Elektra.
Nice knowing you. All of you. Except YCO, maybe.
