    I can see that. In a vacuum, this would be a, “running with scissors,” level bad idea. When you’re under investigation for multiple armed robberies with sharp objects, “running with scissors” in front of thousands of people looks a lot worse.

    That’s a great analogy. I tried to think of one but couldn’t.

    I think the money gun is worse than the stripper pole in this case, which is weird to say.

    Kansas truly believes they have done nothing wrong. Ergo, they had no qualms about putting this on.

    Agreed! It perfectly sums-up Kansas’ arrogance.
