(Parody thread)

Why do left haned Americans so rarely win jackpots?

Depending whose statistics you read, somewhere between 10 and 13% of the population is left-handed, so where's the jackpots?

And how come it's 10 to 13% of the population that's left-handed, not 50%, it just isn't fair!

    By my calculations the least likely person to win a jackpot is a black male lefthanded artist midget!

      I did....didnt you read the post b4 you responded??

      Yeah, I read your post. You were commenting in reference to something I said (you had it copied within your message) where I was talking about the clerks contacting Lottery HQ. Your comment was "the clerks don't select the numbers"...

        I think the store clerks look to see which hand you use to fill out your lottery slips with and if you use your left hand, they notify lottery headquarters and inform them so they can  make sure the numbers chosen by the lefties aren't drawn.

        This is why I fill out my slips before I go into the store. You never know who is working for the commission.

            That's the least of your worries. Forget about your left hand. There's only ONE Weshar75 on LP. You're truly a minority like me. Only ONE Onlymoney Green laugh

             

            Just forget about playing at all. The lottery officials don't follow weekend warriors. Crying

                    That's black male lefthanded artist midgets from Hoboken.  Clown
