“Publishers Clearing House Predicts Murder Six Months In Advance!”

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!



  1. Brian- I’m glad to see that someone else has the ability to twist a seemingly good thing into something sinister!!! The art of “the spin” is being lost in this fast-paced world….Kudos to you!!!

  2. Kind of like I’ve wondered if there was an abnormally high death rate for millionaires a couple of years ago when there was no estate tax …

    • Absolutely, this definitely isn’t the first time I’ve wondered about this. I’ve often imagined someone going to do a documentary on lottery winners and discovering they’ve all died…

  3. Another thought from the creative mind of Brian James Freeman! I always enter. I’ve always thought that if I won, I would have to go into hiding from the public and friends, hire security, and buy an island with me, and my armed security force as it’s only residents. Even then, I would still worry about my safety. So you have to ask yourself, is it really worth it to win the grand prize? I think not.

  4. Create an alias—kill yourself off. Everyone leaves you alone……….Unless you’re old self comes back………
