    Yes, but what about cornish hens.

    Also, a slot machine dishing out drinks? Genius. Not only are you guaranteed to spend money and get plenty drunk in the process, your reward for winning, the drink, is leaving the revenue in the hands of the machine's owner. So when you win, instead of taking away massive amounts of cash, you're getting a mixed drink, a maybe a little cash.
