Nearly eight months after IE introduced New Cheerios and stick-figure caricatures to the unsuspecting Central Park public, agents returned with an even larger mission: offshore gambling. Agents Arnheiter, Flamm, and Todd rented a boat at the Central Park boathouse and hit the water on a warm, sunny afternoon. Arnheiter and Flamm were dressed in tuxedos and Todd was clad in a white dress shirt and black pants. The odd attire alone was attracting odd looks.
People in other boats: You guys coming from a wedding?
Agents: No, we’re high rollers.
The men rowed to a secluded dock on the opposite side of the lake where agents Demblowski, Sklaren, and Rainswept were waiting with contraband. The agents loaded the boat with a large white sign reading “OFFSHORE GAMBLING”, a gambling table, playing cards, poker chips, and a green casino visor. In a matter of moments the Floating Casino was in business.

Agents: Hey you guys over there interested in some gambling?
People on other boats: This is legal?
Agents: Yeah, we’re offshore. International waters.
People on other boats: Don’t you have to be a certain distance offshore?
Agents: Um. We’ve never heard of that.

People on the shore: Can we play?
Agents: Not from there, that would be illegal. Hop on a boat and head on over if you want to play.
The agents claimed that the Floating Casino would be making appearances every Sunday in May, and that while they were giving away free poker chips on this day, starting next week the gambling would be for real money.

Agents: We’re a new company. We’ll be back next week to gamble for real money.
Boat rental workers: Cool.
Apparently, giving out cups of Cheerios is a worse offense than setting up a casino on park property.
Yet another day of organized fun.
