Didn't-win-the-lottery anger

Newcastle Evening Chronicle: Couple who thought they'd won £45m on the lottery blame somebody else

This story has it all. Joy. Mirth. Woe. Dashed hopes. Pointing at something. Stabbings. Lives cruelly crushed under the jack-booted heel of sickening, soul-destroying reality. More pointing.

That's the trouble with the lottery - it's a bloody lottery.

Living not too far (but far enough)from these potential Darwin Award winners I can confirm that the money was spent wisely on his favourite hobbies of drinking and pharmaceutical recreation. Stabbed five times? The Shields monkeys must be slipping - a couple of years ago they would have ensured he'd been removed from the gene pool at the first go. Ah, how times change.
