What's wrong with this picture?


OK, kids. I bought this as my Vegas-y part of my Hannukah gifts for my 14-year-old niece, who has become fascinated by cooking. So tell me, astute readers, what do you find especially weird about this graphic?

Aside from the obvious kitsch -- and I'm being generous here only as a fan of Vegas kitsch (I still have my dice clock ...) -- and the somewhat dated images, I have to wonder when the city became known for its pandas. I mean I know there's a Panda Express in most of the hotel food courts these days, but still ...

That is what I saw too. The Panda. I think it is to keep the Asians happy. (Aren't pandas a symbol of good luck to Asians?)

The dice aren't correct. Proper dice have opposites sides that add up to 7 (so 2 is on the other side to 5, 3 to 4 and 1 to 6). The dice on this have both a 5 and 2 in view....

But the Panda is more likely...

The muffed up dice caught my eye at first, then the Panda, but the airplane flying perpendicular to the ground over the Stratosphere scares the crap outta me! The perspective of the dolphin is incorrect, it should be behind the sign...

The blood stained tiger leaving the dolphin pond...

OK. I totally love you guys. The only thing I saw was the panda. And I wonder about that because there was a point about five years ago when Sen. Ensign's father, Mike Ensign, was still running Mandalay Resort Group, that the senator was working to rent a panda from the Chinese for Mandalay Bay. It obviously never happened. But I love the rest of this, except that I don't really get the dice error.
