Rumor Department: Mirage to be Converted Into Fertilizer Storage Facility

Yesterday, in a quarterly earnings call, MGM Resorts International CEO Jim Murren put to rest rumors of a pending sale of the Mirage. But that hasn’t stopped the rumor mill from turning. In fact, our source tells us that big changes are in store for the Mirage, as MGM Resorts will convert the hotel casino into a storage facility for natural fertilizer.

Could this be the new Mirage?

The MGM portfolio contains numerous hotels, and many of them are adorned with lush gardens, from the Bellagio Conservatory, to the new park area adjacent to New York-New York. Those gardens need fertilizer, and our source tells us MGM’s commitment to sustainability has lead it to use manure - and lots of it. So much, we’re told, that MGM will convert the entire Mirage property into a storage barn for the stinky stuff.

Will the Mirage be converted into a manure storage facility? Or will this turn out to be just another horseshit rumor? Stay tuned...

I'm reading all of this in a fake McCartney voice, because of the Love show at Mirage. It's fun - try it!

As a member of Manure Movers of America Local 239, I can tell ya I've been hearing these rumors for months. Months!!

i thought fertilizer is mainly bullshit...not horseshit. but what do i know.

Golly--you guys must really still be steamed at Scott Roeben (aka Mr. Vital Vegas) and/or his (former?) girlfriend. Move on.

Art can be interpreted in many ways. I interpret this piece (I didn't write it) as a comment on the "publish first ask questions later, if at all" strategy adopted by all strata of media.

You are the one who pointed fingers at Scott and his girlfriend. You also admonished the artist who created this piece, based on your decision to point fingers at Scott and his girlfriend. Art can be interpreted in many ways.
