Yeah, God, Where Were You on This One?

I didn't win the lottery last night. Apparently, you have to buy a ticket first?

I didn't win either and I'm damn bitter about it.

I didn't win either and I bought a ticket! God has something against rewarding bloggers with large sums of unearned cash. Go figure.

Steal cars. It's more exciting and you're always a winner.

A ticket?
What the?
Who knew?
I thought those numbers were phone mumbers.
No wonder I haven't won.
Nest time Gadget, next time.

sorry about losing the lottery that you didn't buy a ticket for. maybe you have a long lost friend in Oregon who purchased a ticket in your name. in the meanwhile, we'll be glad to know we don't have to read some ghostwriter's scribbling in your blog.

Hey, maybe that is what I am doing wrong!

Well AMG, you can ask God directly now. Just go to the following site for iGod:

You can ask him/her/it why he didn't favor you... this time.

Shit is that all you have to do to win? I would've played for sure!

"the lottery is a tax for people who don't know how to do math."

i acctually have a plan to win the lottery. the idea is to get 10 people to chip in $1,000, then use the whole $10,000 to buy lotto tickets. (the percentage would increase drastically.)

I could think of a hell of a lot better things to waste 10 grand on rather than lotto tickets. The odds are still WAY against you. Personally, I'd take that cash to Vegas and play roulette or rent out a bar and throw a bash.

*I did buy 5 Powerscam tickets. On one of the tickets I got 1 number right and the powerball. So I got that going for me....

So... how do we KNOW you did not win, and this post was the 'trial balloon' by the ghostwriter to see if they could fool us?

You didn't lose a lottery drawing, you saved a dollar.

The lottery is a tax on people without much sense: how much you pay is a good indicator of how gullible you are.

K2 said...

Okay, so I went to the site psquared put up, and asked why you didn't win.

Me:
Why didn't AMG win the lottery?
God:
I'm not too good with counterfactuals.

umm... okay

You're better off not winning. If you won, you'd probably take a trip around the world in a private jet, run away with a hunky Malaysian, buy a castle in Scotland, and give up blogging -- and piss off all your readers.

bigfootcookie said...

I for one am glad you didn't win. At least I don't now have to read the aimless meanderings of a ghost writer, and instead can read the meanderings of...

Oh.

Sorry, It was meant to be a compliment!

RitMeyer said...

God punked out on me too. Freaking 340 million!

There are no hunky Malaysians.

I didn't win either. I was supposed to because I played the numbers Hurley played on Lost. I was supposed to have a doomed life! Rats. I'll have to head to work Monday.
