Maybe only my mind works this way, but have you seen the Publishers Clearing House “$5,000 A Week ‘Forever’ Prize” ads on TV?
Basically, the winner will get $5,000 a week for the rest of his or her life, and then when he or she dies, another person that the winner has selected will start getting $5,000 per week for the rest of his or her life.
Does anyone else see how this story is going to end? Maybe with a headline along these lines:
“Publishers Clearing House Winner Dies In Mysterious Accident!”
So, if you’re the winner of the “Publishers Clearing House $5,000 A Week ‘Forever’ Prize,” I’d say you should enjoy the $5,000 a week for the rest of your life… however long or short it might be!
