YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG!

It's like that old man who turned 98. He won the lottery and died the next day.

Worst failure to use the Ironic tag, ever.

So her family actually won, or the holder of the ticket.
 
2011-01-31 03:48:46 PM  
A little too Ironic.
 
2011-01-31 03:50:23 PM  
So she was stupid as well as sick?
 
2011-01-31 03:50:26 PM  
There was a black fly in her chardonnay?

I don't get how this is like a traffic jam when I'm already late.

I just thought of the angry nerd expression on the guy in the comic and LOL'd when I read that.

It's like 10,000 sporks in your Pinot Grigio.

Did the rest of the village pretend she was still alive and collect and share the money?

/Hot like a dead person's winning lotto ticket or something

It sounds more like some friends of hers with whom she played the lottery with regularly decided to include her family after they won $45k.

Damn nice of them. But the dead lady wasn't directly connected to the winning ticket in any way.

The good news is you've won enough money to go see your favorite team in the superbowl. The bad news is...what's that? Omg! Best month ever!
 
2011-01-31 03:54:08 PM  
FTFA : Paul McCauley said he was convinced it was his wife's way of getting the last word and he knew exactly how the Green Bay Packers fan would have spent the money. "If she was alive ... we'd go to Dallas [for the Super Bowl]," Paul McCauley said.


I think Darwin picked a good one this time.

People old enough to collect social security and medicare should not be allowed to buy lottery tickets with a payout larger than $10,000.
 
2011-01-31 03:56:04 PM  
It's like RAAAIIIINNNN!
 
2011-01-31 03:56:18 PM  
And who would have thought...it figures.
 
2011-01-31 03:57:29 PM  
...can I have her stuff?

Well it appears she was a Packers fan and lived in Cottage Grove, so I am sure that's implied.
