In light of today's marathon The Lottery Changed My Life, would you ever consider consider being filmed for the show if you won?

    The last thing I need is to appear on TV or grant an interview. I wouldn't tell anybody, except my CPA or financial adviser if it is big enough.

      Yes, I would definitely tell the whole world about it. Big Smile Including on "The Lottery Changed My Life."

      Why? Because my winning lottery numbers would have come directly from the pages of

      The Lottery Code that Joker17 told us about. Lover

        I honestly don't know. In one hand I could have a blast telling everyone that the lottery is not a
        curse and to think so is idiotic at best. on the other hand; making an appearance on a nationally televised
        show can bring forth a lot of unwanted publicity.

        maybe I could hire someone to be my spokesperson...no?

          I voted No way Jose.

          I though about voting Only with a bag over my head, but I could just see something like the TLC narrator saying, "The man with the bag over his head is Luigi Spumoni of Jersey City, NJ who just won $135 million ".

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          Lep

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

            Dadgum straight.

            But I'd do it like a talk show and have a couple guests to interview along the way.

            Probably interesting personalities like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachman. I'd probably give em each a million dollars walkin' around money too.

            Instead of a desk like Leno and that idiot Letterman use, we'd all just be on the couch with me in the middle conducting the interview.

            Of course we'd have a little Jack Daniels to relax and unwind before and during the interview so the guests could more comfortably gather their thoughts while I regale them with my anecdotes.

            Then it would be off to the party bus to hit every dadgum honky-tonk in the mountains. And teach them wimmins to dance!

            And I'd let the guests and tv people know ahead of time that like that old 'Pork and the Havana Ducks' song said:

            We ain't leavin' til we're heavin'

            And pukin' in the parkin' lot.

            Dadgum straight.

              No. Part of being low key is to remain out of the spotlights, and cameras.

                        The message from the program is, stay anonymous if you can!

                          No, winning the lottery is not a curse, it is the publicity that is the curse.
