You'll Never Have a Better Chance
The people who sell lottery tickets to benefit hospitals and such are crying because not enough people are buying their tickets on $2,000,000 homes. Hard to say why that is. The longshot players cannot have all died off overnight.
If I had to guess, I would say the casinos are hogging all the money.
CKNW, the radio station I have been listening to since I was gestating in my mom's liquor warmed womb, was pushing ticket sales for one of them as I made my way home from work today. "Come on down," the weatherman spokesman longshot pusher encouraged his elderly and very nearly braindead audience. "With only 40% of the tickets sold, you'll never have a better chance to win the brand new home or the 1.7 million dollar buy out." The radio station seemed to be providing the advertising for free.
I wonder if CKNW would do the same if the crew behind Occupy Vancouver decided they would like to sell tickets on a brand new luxury tent to raise money for the poor and ticket sales were so fucking slow it looked like they might be going to lose money on the venture.
Did not think so.
Fuck the hospital lotteries is what I say. Whatever happened to bake sales?
