Hula Hooping at Harrah's Council Bluffs

"Y'know. For kids," spoketh Norville Barnes (Tim Robbins) while cryptically explaining his invention - commonly called 'the hula hoop' - to one of his co-stars in the Coen brothers film The Hudsucker Proxy. Well, the suckers the other day were employees of Harrah's Iowa feeder casino Harrah's Council Bluffs who goofed around for hours with hula hoops in a grand display of employee morale that would make any fan of "Office Space" swallow the nearest red stapler.

Harrah's Council Bluffs' employees were celebrating $255,000 in bonuses bestowed upon 1,600 lucky individuals by Harrah's big wigs. The windfall can be attributed to garnering high marks on customer service surveys. Director of Customer Service, Joni Mitchell broke out into song while stating that employees were "celebrating the first quarter." No word why Harrah's is sending these bonuses to the employees 25¢ at a time.

We've been wondering what happened to Canadian jazz-folk songstress Joni Mitchell. Could she be working her way up Harrah's ranks to the big stage at Caesars Palace? She'd be a much better choice than a double bill of Rush and Neal Young.

This story is one of the stupidest we've ever posted.
