Episode 172: Smollop: America’s Worst Lottery Winner

I’m somebody! You see–I did it! I’m somebody! I said I wasn’t an idiot! I’ll take all those ottomans.

Bud Postentertainment suggestions (i.e., movies that came to my mind because my mind never shuts up):

Business Insider: 21 Lottery Winners Who Blew It All (all the Schadenfreude you could ever want, ya bastard–but wait, here’s some more…)


Cracked: The Six Most Undeserving Lottery Winners in History — This list is so insane that Bud Post isn’t even on it.


Cracked: Five Real People Whose Lives Were Ruined By Winning the Lottery — Again, this list is so wacky that Bud didn’t make the cut. Mr. Too Many Wives/Kids/TVs didn’t make the grade.

Feel better about your life now, asshole? (Yeah, me, too.)

How did you just make the saddest thing sadder?

You’re welcome.

Don’t win the lottery, and don’t manufacture meth, I think is what I’m trying to say here.


Yeah, if you didn’t guess, some of the goo in the picture (okay, probably all of it) is dissolved human of some sort or another). So video many not be for everyone. But it is wickedly funny.

NPR: Can You Really Dissolve A Guy in a Bathtub?, in other words, Mythbusters plays with a dead pig. Again.
