This weekend I went to a local casino with some friends. The place had tons of new machines and I walked around in a neon daze while music from all the machines assaulted my ears. And then I spotted it, the mecca of slot machines – The Wizard of Oz penny machine. No one was on it. There was even a duplicate next to it so my friend could sit with me.

I happily started pumping money in.

Now, for those of you who don’t know me well, I like to root for the bad guys sometimes. Okay, most of the time. Like in that stupid Potter series, I rooted for Lord Voldemort. In Oz, I rooted for the wicked witch because Dorothy annoyed me. And Scarecrow – don’t even get me started on that guy! Love the movie, but like I said, I root for the villain.

So I’m sitting at this slot machine and I realize that I have to root for the Wicked Witch. You need three of her to get the flying monkey bonus.

This game was designed with me in mind!

So I get the witch and win $24 thanks to her monkeys. Did you get that?! $24 on a penny machine while rooting for the bad guy. 

The bad guys always win in life.
