I like the lottery. It’s the only tax poor people pay. I do buy a couple when I’m working in a state that has it and the pot is big, why not?

The best thing about the lottery is when poor people win it, and they become poor again within a year or two.

Back at uni, one of my classes was statistics and the reason why students took it was really to find out if they can crunch the numbers on the lottery.

“It’s the only tax poor people pay.”

I’ll remember that! I used to feel bad for the poor old lady buying a pack of smokes and a few lottery tickets.

I would have won this time, but I forgot to buy a ticket! (Would have made my third or fourth lottery ticket ever.)

And all their new friends are gone within a year or two as well.
