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!
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!!!
A few of my recommendations to the winner of this prize:
1) do not eat food prepared by others
2) do not take those skydiving lessons
3) do not take that deep sea fishing trip
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…
Oh, yes. That thought has definitely crossed my mind.
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.
I say make your mother your beneficiary and be really, really nice to her!
