Queens fairytale by way of Atlantic City

There are times when being whipped pays off, literally!

A Queens limo-fleet manager won an $800,000 slot jackpot in Atlantic City yesterday during an impromptu trip sparked by an argument with his girlfriend over jeans.


Sammy Zabib, 42, had been hearing it all week from his gal pal after he failed to pick up a pair of jeans she spotted last weekend in a boutique inside the Borgata Hotel & Casino.

Tired of the badgering, Zabib jumped into his car at 5 a.m. and returned to the Borgata, only to see the store hadn't opened.

That's when he sat down at the Brazil Slingo slot machine and changed his life in a single pull.

Zabib: "If I were a rich man,
Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.
All day long I'd biddy biddy bum,
If I were a wealthy man."

Congrats Zabib! Now you can take the 800 G's and buy a studio condo in LIC.

Advice to Zabib: return the Dojo 7 jeans - get the refund of $147, dump girlfriend Anna. Go to the Queens Tribune classified section for an appreciative PT girlfriend returning to AC to play with your Brazil Slingo.

Now he can afford to dump his gal/pal
and move da f--k out of Queens!

Bedford Hills would be my destination
if I got that lucky!

Isn't that a prison?

In a wealthy sort of way.
Maybe I meant Bedford?'s above Scarsdale
somewhere on the Hudson.
