(NSFW, language)

If you’re one of those college kids desperately clinging to your safe space, volunteering to be the neighborhood watch of the Thought Police and looking everywhere at language that offends you, do us all a favor and do not watch this. If not, enjoy. I can honestly say that by the time I was a third of the way through this I’d laughed out loud a half dozen times, and it kept getting better.

“I think we should break up the big banks.”

“Then how will you be able to get your parents’ money?”

Genius.

Review JournalThe High Roller Club grew by two on the afternoon of Feb. 5, when a security officer noticed the only passengers in Cabin 16, a man and woman, smoking and undressing. …

Security officers used the intercom to tell the amorous couple to “please put all cigarettes out and put all clothes back on.”

They stopped, briefly sat down, but then went back at it. They refused a second request to end the tryst.

That’s when the Las Vegas police were called.

The 550-foot-diameter wheel with its 28 cabins each big enough to hold 40 people didn’t stop rolling — it’s continual motion. At the end of the 30-minute ride the fully clothed tourists, Chloe Scordianos, 21, of Hicksville, NY, and Philip Frank Panzica III, 27, of Houston, Texas, were pulled from the giant glass ball and charged with committing sex acts in public, a felony.

The criminal complaint alleges extensive nudity and cunnilingus on the world’s tallest observation wheel, which is billed as “The Happiest Half Hour in Vegas!”

“They both said they were just having a good time and didn’t think anyone would notice,” the arresting officers wrote in their report.

There are certain well known, philosophical statements that are universal truths. Do unto others as you would have done to you. All men are created equal. Get busy living or get busy dying. And I would add to them, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

I mean, what’s with these people diming out poor Chloe Scordianos and Philip Panzica? And what’s with the police hauling them off to the Stony Lonesome? What part of “Sin City” don’t they understand? When Moe Green had the idea to build a city out of a desert stopover for GIs on the way to the West Coast, he no doubt dreamed it would be the kind of place where a couple could have sex inside a glassed-in capsule at 3 o’clock in the afternoon in peace, without being hassled by the man. A haven where naked people could conduct public sex at major tourist attractions in private. And if Vegas doesn’t want a man from Houston, Texas, to have sex with a woman from Hicksville, New York, in broad daylight, well, then don’t build Ferris wheels that take you on half-hour trips. You have only yourselves to blame.

After finishing the season as the NFL’s top-ranked defense and dominating throughout the postseason, the Broncos brought a Lombardi Trophy back to Denver and celebrated with their fans Tuesday.

At the team’s victory parade, general manager John Elway raised some eyebrows when he said the defense should not only be considered elite, it should go down as one of the best in the history of the league.

“To me, to sit here and say, if you look at it, if you look at the performance in that Super Bowl, they are in the argument to be one of the best ever,” Elway said. “It’s hard to say that they’re going to be that, but they’re in the argument, which is a [great] compliment to them.”

Elway was the man who constructed the defense piece by piece following Denver’s blowout loss to the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII. The Broncos transformed from an offensive-minded team to one that was carried by its defense.

“I know one thing: I wouldn’t want to play them. I’m glad I didn’t have to play them,” Elway said. “Obviously, we’re biased in the fact that we rode their coattails all the way to the championship.”

Denver’s mayor estimated that a million fans turned out for Tuesday’s celebration, with players riding a convoy through city streets after an outdoor concert.

The Lead Every NFL game has two officials in the replay booth.

There’€™s the “replay official” and the “replay assistant.” Those two guys. That’s it.

When a referee goes under the hood, he’s consulting with the replay assistant. In Sunday’s Super Bowl, the replay assistant was a man from Denver named Jimmy Oldham.

As you’ll see from the pictures and comments … (which Mrs. Oldham publicly posted on Facebook), Oldham’s wife is a passionate Denver Broncos fan. Like really passionate, which begs the question: how on earth did the NFL assign Oldham to the Super Bowl and expect him to remain unbiased?

I’m sure the NFL will either ignore this or tell us it’s no big deal. The audio/visual squad geek assigned to handle replays at the Super Bowl just happens to be the happily married half of a shameless Denver Broncos fancouple. For a game in which we saw one of the most baffling, inexplicable non-reversals in the history of instant replay, when Carolina receiver Jerricho Cotchery so obviously caught a pass that no one from Phil Simms to Jim Nantz to former NFL official Mike Carey could, for the life of them, explain why it was ruled incomplete. I’m sure it’s just a complete coincidence that at the end of an exhaustive, nationwide search to find some nerd to handle the equipment, they found a guy who’s wife can’t contain her blatant love for the Broncos.

Does this prove the game was not on the level? Or that the Cotch Botch was Jimmy Oldham rigging the game in order to get Mrs. Oldham in the mood to reward him with a trip to Pleasure Town? Unfortunately, no. It’s not proof. But it does prove once again the NFL’s blatant disinterest for even appearing to know what it is doing. There are 320 million people in America, probably 319 million of whom could have handled the job. But the NFL gives it to a Denver fanboy and expects that no one will notice, object or even care. Because the NFL has zero respect for anything besides hauling away giant dump trucks of cash on a daily basis.

And once again, I find myself asking what would happen if, say, in Super Bowl XLIX it turned out the replay assistant was a Patriots fan. Congress would be called into emergency session and martial law would be declared. But it’s only those lovable Broncos, captained by America’s Sweetheart, Peyton Manning. So there’s nothing to see here.

My San AntonioMonika Rostvold, the Texas State fine arts student who sat nearly naked on campus last semester as a live artistic performance against sexual assault, has carried out another piece that has the campus buzzing again. …

On Monday, she laid flat on a picnic table outside the student center wearing a bra, panties and covered in Chick-Fil-A waffle fries and showered in ketchup. …

“I think the fact that food being craved and satisfied relates to how we satisfy our emotional and physical relationships now a days and just questioning, is this what we want,” she said.

Far be it for me to question Monika Rostvold’s art. I confess that I’m the kind of patron of the arts who gravitates toward Norman Rockwell, paintings of ships and the magic of Bob Ross, but I don’t want to be so narrow-minded that I can’t appreciate the subtle nuance of a college student in her underwear with ketchup and waffle fries on her body.

And I have to say, while at first I didn’t get it, her interpretation makes perfect sense to me. I hadn’t ever really contemplated the way food being craved and satisfied relates to how we satisfy our emotional and physical relationships. But the way she had those fries on her funny business really brought that message home. And now I am questioning whether this is what I want.

I get another message out of this is as well. Something even more nuanced in my own interpretation, that is probably lost even on Monika. And it’s the message that her parents are spending $18,000 a year on tuition, room and board so their daughter can have total strangers eat fried foods off their daughter’s belly. At least that’s what I read into it. And as the great Ron Swanson said, “It’s art. Anything is anything.”
