It's Elton John! No, it's Liberace!



I had a, uh, interesting-looking gentleman sit down at the table in the Hilton poker room today. See for yourself. The photo resolution isn't great, but if you look closely you'll see the big double earrings, the oversized ring, the watch that's as big as the face of a grandfather clock--completely covered in fake diamonds--the heavy silver cross on a fat chain around his neck. And to top it all off, the glasses that Elton John would reject for being too ostentatious and effeminate.
I wonder if people like this have any idea how ridiculous they look.
