Is someone buying Lottery Tickets for June 27th Drawings, because of the shorth story "The Lottery" written  by Shirley Jackson and published in 1948?

Homer Simpson did that on Episode 19 of Season 3 "DOG OF DEATH"

Aired on March 12th 1992

In this episode Homer found out that Shirley Jackson's novel The Lottety has no clues on winning the lottery at all but is in fact a chilling tale of conformity gone mad. That´s why Homer throws the book in the fireplace.


Marge's regular lottery numbers are 3, 6, 17, 18, 2 and 29.

      Welcome to LP future-boy! I won't be buying tickets for tomorrow, but that's because I don't play Mega Millions. I'm guessing that is what you are referring to. Since it's the major game playing on the 27th.

        Welcome to LP,future-boy.

        Several years ago a bunch of people played the numbers predicted in a fortune cookie and won the Powerball.This could be the same kind of thing.The only problem I see with playing these numbers is if it hits and a bunch of other folks played the same numbers,you'll have to share the jackpot with all of those other people.Personally,I don't want to share a jackpot with anyone,so I'll play my own numbers and hope that nobody else plays them,too,and I win.

            I might as well have played those numbers 'cause my numbers didn't hit either.Thud
