Ooh I Won a Toyota Prius! Did You?

Who knew I had such a winning streak? Who knew I was this lucky? I didn't! But it seems that I am especially lucky with the British Gaming Commission. Those folks over there just love me. They love me at least three times a day.

Everyday I win something from them. Sometimes it's a million or so pounds, sometimes just a few hundred pounds. A few times it's been an exotic getaway for two. But today? TODAY IT'S A CAR! Lucky me!

Just look at this!

But you know what? I don't think I really want a Prius. I'm going to give it up. Let them pass it on to some other lucky soul. We're just fine driving our 10 yr. old Toyota and newer Nissan. Besides I bet they would give me some ugly color. You know like purple? The color that sells the least on a sales lot. Also? Why can't a local Toyota dealer just deliver one to me? Why does Toyota want to go to such expense as to ship an American-made car to me from Britain. Hmmm.....

I'm mighty suspicious of anyone who wants this much information yet seems to have my email address. Do you think that maybe it's just a phishing site? That there is a reason this just ended up in my spam mail and not say on the end of a telephone line or at my front door? Does anyone else find it odd that the Toyota promotions department is the UK? Or that the Lottery Manager spells his name Tedy with only one 'd'? This whole thing reeks of scam.

So sad too because of course any winning car I would have received I would have just given away to charity. I win so much from the British Gaming commission I've grown tired of them and I'm passing my winnings on. Tsk Tsk...
