Just in Time for Christmas: Top 10 Ways to Spend your European Lottery Winnings

I just got this note which begins....
You have been awarded 750,000 Euros in the SWISS-LOTTO Satellite Software email lottery in which e-mail addresses are picked randomly by Software powered by the internet through the worldwide website.
Asking around a bit, I realized that so many of my online and offline acquaintances and friends have received similar winnings, we could probably do a lot of good for the world if we pooled them. But what to spend them on?

  1. A Monogrammed golf bag with matching ankle bracelet for Bernard Madoff. (Club Fed)
  2. Complete Set of econ literature for the Congress and Federal Reserve Board Chairmen.
  3. Buy back the Federal Reserve for $500 Billion, eliminating the necessity of an Income Tax
  4. Book a permanent vacation on a remote desert Island for Ben Bernanke and Henry Paulson. Send Gilligan with them so they are never able to escape.
  5. Buy a lifetime supply of nicotine patches for Obama (it's for the children)
  6. Provide resume services for GM and Chrysler execs after their companies go bankrupt
  7. Help widows in Nigeria transfer husbands fortunes into US accounts
  8. Provide "Golden Chutzpah" awards for anyone on the Obama "investigatory" team clearing itself of any wrongdoing in the Blagojevich scandal.
  9. Close down Washington for Cleaning until 2012 while the citizens fix the economy
  10. Bring all of our soldiers home for Christmas (Hurry! only one more day!)
