    I have a red ticket on my desktop with number "913946" on it. It says on it

    KEEP THIS COUPON

    This was from our company's Christmas..erh Holiday party [​IMG] prize giveaway. But I didn't win squat. However, I am now deathly afraid to throw this ticket out since it does say

    KEEP THIS COUPON

    Do you think there is a Voodoo priest that will put a hex on me if I throw this out, or should I keep it til next year's party for hopes of having twice the chances? Maybe there is an online registry for such a thing. If everybody is keeping their coupon, then perhaps you can all send it to me and I can corner the market on raffle tickets. I'll just bring them along to every party/event and see if I can live off of door prizes. Yeah! Instead of


    KEEP THIS COUPON

    it should say

    SEND THIS TICKET TO JAY H

    I wonder how many of these tickets are in circulation, I mean if Party City just prints these outs and nobody tosses them, it could become the next US Currency. The next Susan B Anthony dollar, the next Indian Penny.

    All of your furniture still has those "do not remove" tags, right? [​IMG]

    Ohh, Silica, I have that, although I am out of salsa.

    Yes, Joseph, Yes indeed they do.

    I wonder how did our company get these tickets from Party City. Obviously somebody at Party City disobeyed their own printed word. They did not keep that coupon, they sold it. Sheesh.

    Whatever you do, don't lose it and try to go back to claim the supposed prize. Especially don't do this if you have a track record of swindling others.

    What you may not know is that Party City is on the verge of a worldwide takeover of all functions and services. In a leaked memo which I was privy to, they stated that those that retained their coupons would be afforded special positions in their new world government. I suppose I should start calling you Viceroy Jay H.

    Coincidentally, I pulled a couple KEEP THIS COUPON tickets out of my pants pocket this morning. They were tattered after going through a wash cycle. I'm pretty sure they were from Seattle's Deja Vu. Ahh, memories [​IMG]
