When she can’t produce it, that means whitey tookded it from where she hide it at.
I bet the real winner is probably quietly thanking God they have an idiot like this creating such a nice diversion, while they have already contacted their lawyers, accountants and bankers.
I suspect that even as I type this, the McDonalds in question is being taken apart, beam by beam, shingle by shingle by a rioting mob searching for the missing ticket.
And that real winner will be asked first: “have you been to the McDonald’s at...’
So when (not if) that McDonalds is reduced to rubble, will she claim the “ticket” was lost and sue to be paid anyway? Hey, if it works, maybe I’ll give it a try! /sarc
Some people are just plain stoopid. That's my bet. 15 mins of fame.
Apropos of nothing in particular, I own the title deed to Fort Knox and everything in it.
I don’t want to produce the deed, but I’ll sue the cr*p out of anybody who doubts my word.
This is the moron who claimed even though she bought a bunch of tickets with the $ 5 everyone chipped in, it wasn’t one of those tickets that was the winner... it was one she bought all by herself. Imagine you buy say 50 tickets with everyone else’s money and one more just in case. Naturally the other 50 were the losers and that extra one, well that was the winner.
Does this bitch have a death wish or what. If she tried that with me, well let’s just say I’d be happy to do the time.
I hope when she comes forward the others tie her up in court for years. There have to be thousands of sleazy lawyers in MD willing to take this case for a nice percentage of what they win.
Or if she manages to steal all the money for herself, one can only hope she becomes one of many who have had nothing but hardship since winning.
Don’t get it? If I had that ticket I would tell no one and it wouldn’t leave my sight till I’d turned it in to Lotto officials
I suspect someone got a hold of that ticket. they can’t redeem it and they can’t sell it, but they’ll be damned if they give it back.
I wonder if she is under protective custody?
Think I’ll classify her as a grade A McMoron!
Now she probably did that and their group most likely lost. When the real winner turns in the ticket we will know she is a liar UNLESS she finds the ticket that she "hid" or can't find or her dog ate it and splits it with her group;-)
I thought it was buried underneath the big W.
I thought Alan Abel won it again...
When the national Powerball Lottery reached $365 million, the biggest jackpot in American history, Alan took the opportunity to dust off one of his most successful hoaxes. He hired his friend and long-time coconspirator, Bob Pagani, to pose as the winner and the two traveled to Lincoln, Nebraska where the winning ticket was purchased.
With a photocopy of a doctored ticket in hand, Alan and Bob walked into a local diner where they gave the manager $2000 to pay for the meals of everyone there. Within fifteen minutes, the restaurant was packed with enthusiastic reporters. Pagani told the press that he had randomly picked the winning numbers out of a book called The Attractor Factor by self-help guru Joe Vitale.
Despite blatant discrepancies in Bob’s story, their hijinks made national headlines.
