The Illinois Lottery kinda sorta doesn't have your winnings but is totally good for it, man

    If you win more than $25k, you get a nice, shiny IOU until the state pulls a budget from the wreckage.

    Tough luck for Illinois Lottery winners

    If Texas tries to pull that on me when I win, I'm gonna kick some ass!

    Wow, what a fucked up state. Al Capone weeps in shame.

    Talk about a good way to kill the lottery revenues.

    How long until Illinois is completely dissolved and split between Missouri, Indiana, Iowa and Wisconsin? Or maybe time for the cheeseheads to invade and take over.

    Not enough deer to make it worth their while.

    Or beer, for that matter.

    Well, if they invade, they always can take over the Bears and merge them. Lacy and Forte would be a great running tandem, and Cutler would make a good third-string QB.

    This editorial is a joke. Of course there are other fish to fry in the Illinois legislature but if you're not going to pay out jackpots then that's a huge problem. Stop selling the tickets. The editorial dismisses it as an issue that affects "perhaps a couple dozen people," but is that how we're selecting our outrage now, with head counts? So you're not losing sleep over a guy waiting on his $50 grand. That's not the point.

    Missouri holds up a picture of the DO NOT WANT wolf being offered a plate of broccoli.

    I started to ask why you were cheating Kentucky out of its share, then realized its share would be Cairo.

    If it's timed right, we can dissolve Illinois and gain Puerto Rico as a state. Saves the tax dollar of a flag redesign.
