Las Vegas is planning to make the Luxor casino resort ‘even more Egypty’, by dressing some staff as terrorists.
Renowned for its eye for historic detail, the Pyramid-inspired hotel will soon ring to the sound of small ‘entertainment explosions’.
“We know that Americans are fascinated by Egypt, just enough to drive to the desert and gawp at a fibre-glass sphinx”, said manager Chuck Kowalski.
“But a few have complained that it isn’t authentic, and that there aren’t enough terrorists for them to have a pop at.”
Kowalski blames the internet for leaking news of the ‘real Egypt’ into the conscious of America, but sees desperate suicide bombers as an opportunity, rather than a threat.
“All our staff are paid equity and we provide them with medical insurance, as well as some pretty good bullet-proof vests.”
“Why not empty a clip into the chest of a young man dressed as a terrorist?”, asked Kowalski, “and then brag about it afterwards, over a talibanana daiquiri in the Muslim Brotherhood bar?”
With a large pool of desperate migrant workers to draw on, aren’t the visitors to the resort worried that their holiday ‘war’ is unwinnable, we asked?
Kowalski replied “That’s never been a concern of those who visit our casinos.”
