Here’s a funny little tidbit I read online recently about a California lottery winner that I thought I’d pass along to you guys for a Friday giggle:
Californian Bill Helko was thrilled when he had the winning numbers in the local lottery, the first prize being $412,000.
He straight away went and ordered a Porsche, booked a family holiday
in Hawaii and had a champagne dinner with his wife and friends at an expensive Hollywood restaurant.
When he went to pick up the winnings he found that 9,097 others had
also won first prize and his share of the jackpot was $45.
