Ginny's Little Longhorn Saloon is one of the coziest dive bars in Austin, Texas, full of your typical Austin college kids, your Austin "Keep It Weird" hippies and hipsters, and a generous helpin' of elderly country-music-lovin' Texans sporting plaid button-up shirts and truly legit cowboy hats.

On a regular day, this bar can appear a bit grim and dire, somewhat redolent of those backwater bars where a movie's protagonist has just lost his lover to his best friend's dog.

However, on Sundays, Ginny's and the adjoining parking lot come alive for the weekly presentation of Chicken Shit Bingo; a hard-working chicken is summoned into the bar, popped into a cage full of feed, and is intently watched until it defecates onto a bingo square. The patron with the corresponding ticket number wins cash.

In fact, your photographer, with the ticketed number 25, was the proud winner on this particular un-crappy day, and can attest that this crazy game is not rigged, no matter what the drunken locals may say.
