Not really, but watching a clip on America's Funniest Videos started a thought.
If a friend or family member pranked you with one of those fake lottery tickets, would you be mad or upset when you found out it wasn't real?
What if you were having a hard financial time? Would it upset you more?
I have a great and quirky sense of humor but I've never seen the humor in this prank. I mean, when you see something like that, everything you can do with it flashes through your mind in a split second. Then it's all taken away when you realize it's fake.
I wouldn't be throwing-things-and-yelling pissed, but I would be kind of upset.
I would punch them in the face. We are broke as hell right now, and it's no big secret. I'm not ashamed, but damn it owuld be nice if got magically fixed! But yeah, I'd punch them for that. Then laugh. A lot harder than they were.
