I won the Florida lottery! I'm now a multi-millionaire! Can you believe it?! I'm bouncing off the walls here! You see, my ticket doesn't have the exact winning numbers on it, but I meant to pick those winning numbers.
The ticket was very confusing when I was filling it out and so I ended up with the wrong numbers on my card. But since I really meant to pick those other numbers, they're going to give me the money anyway! They really shouldn't make those darn cards so hard to fill out! Even though I was confused, I didn't ask for help because no one would have helped me anyway. I know the FL State Lottery will give me the money. If the don't I'll just sue them!

Oh! That is SO unfair!! How dare they make things difficult? Why, I do believe if they would just lower the requirements to fill out that lottery card, all the world would be right and we can get on with true democracy in our lotterys!! Why do they make so many rules anyway? Geesh, if you feel like you won, you must have and they need to abide by your will! After all, it comes down to a matter of the "peoples will" and not the "rule of law" if we just band together and demand it!! Count me in, I have no regard for silly rules and laws that prevent confused, deluded and corrupt people from claiming their share of the money pot!! We must stand against those who would oppose our will!! relotterynumbers, relotterynumbers, relotterynumbers......

Stan, that is just wonderful. How terrific it was that we had this election so recently to point this out to you. You would never have realized that you too could be a winner if it was not for them. I would be collecting my money in the state of Virginia as well but I just haven't figured out how I will pursue my case since I didn't buy a lotter ticket. Maybe I could say that the store wasn't open late enough at night and I wasn't able to get there, not really my fault, and if they had just extended their sales hours, I could have bought a lottery ticket. Oh well, it doesn't really matter, I should just sue anyway. I'll probably get something to settle out of court. Thanks for the idea, Stan.
