Still, when your leaving the supermarket and you have dollar in change the cashier just handed to you after you bought your Cotton Candy flavored Oreos sometimes you just toss into that instant win scracth off machine by the exit and Redbox knockoff.

Of course, odds are you’ll lose. But the odds aren’t that the lottery ticket is going to make fun of you. But that’s exactly what a man from Elmira, NY is claiming.

Nick Lynough bought a Wheel of Fortune lottery ticket. The games plays just like Wheel of Fortune, except without the wheel or the fortune. You scratch off some letters, see if they match the ones in the phrase… and have a chance at winning.

Mr. Lynough didn’t win anything except some publicity in his local newspaper after his ticket proclaimed “YOU ELMIRA TRASH”.

Most people would have laughed it off, maybe posted it to Reddit for some free Karma, but Mr. Lynough instead called the police.

The New York State lottery has responded by saying the words are generated at random and that they will remove the word “Trash” from future tickets.

Back in 1915, Unicycles weren’t as cool as they were know… actually, they didn’t even make sense. Check out this ad from the May 1915 issue of Boy’s Life:

Not sure what the logistic of this is. Looks like a kid hanging inside a hula hoop attached to an old school push lawnmower. Besides the fact that this is more likely to provide broken bones than fun, they also expect kids to sell these.

So, you’ve died. You want to buried in a cemetery? Pfft, that’s not very original. Want your ashes scattered across a river? Meh, it’s been done. Want to buried under a football field? Sorry, Jimmy Hoffa has beat you to it.

No, you deserve something truly original. How about having ashes placed inside a bust of President Obama’s head? Now, we’re talking.

For the low price of $2,600 you can get this lovely urn that looks like Obama’s mug. I can’t think of a better way to support a Democrat after you’ve passed away, except for all the dead people that voted.

I would rather have my ashes put into George W. Bush’s head, it’s a lot emptier in there.

 

I know you probably have your credit card out, ready to make the purchase. You can click here to check it out.
