A genuine autographed lithograph of Zombie Ed McMahon eating Zombie Dick Clark.

Fascinating read. I have always thought that PCH felt sort of scammy. I do feel bad for some of those older folks who really thought that they had won.

IIRC, one of my grandparents did win something small - like $500 or something - back in the day.

I used to love picking out the color of the car I'd "win" when I was a kid. My sister and I used to fight over who would get to put all the stickers on the entry forms.

My grandmother was one of the people who was convinced that she could win the sweepstakes if only she bought more subscriptions/videos/books/everything.

What a despicable marketing scheme.

WTF is going on in that stock picture? It's on the set of The Price is Right, but the check cleary says Publisher's Clearing House...

I don't know but if I were you, I'd go down in the bunker and lock myself in. Can't be too careful.

Photoshop? Or maybe a cross-promotion with Price is Right?
