Sheldon G. Adelson

There are more reasons why this chap is my choice pick for today’s sweltering heat inspired Smug Chump than I’ve narrowed down, international scale bribery, corruption and the fact that he’s currently the 24th richest person in the world doesn’t even scrape the surface of the brevity. That aside. Mention anything about an infinity pool, hell, wander over to Google it and what will come up with the Mantra Bay Sands Hotel infinity pool AKA heaven on Singaporean earth.

Now, Sheldon is the chairman and chief executive officer of the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, and for my purposes representation of the Smug. I can picture him now, sitting there in his new hide bazillion dollar chair stroking his chin, letting out a chortle and thinking, “my oh my I am a genius”.

It’s not that he’s solely come up with infinity pools, no, it’s the trouble that everyone who steps into that pool is immediately blessed with the smug water and trots around like some sort of king of all the land beneath them. No longer do people in that pool abide by decent poolside manner – It’s insufferable.

Truth be told – I did absolutely act like one of those chumps while I was in there last week.
