There Be No Fools

In times like these, we could all use a good laugh. Whether it’s sitcoms or jokes, cartoons or pranks, we’d go nuts if we never stopped to laugh at the absurdities of “real life”.

Lotto Texas and Powerball got in a laugh or two Wednesday night. Neither of them showered us with Pattern encores, but there was a repeating Combination of the Three or Four-Number kind somewhere. Even though the lotteries were taking it easy for the most part, they had enough energy to boost the jackpot to $10.5 million in Lotto Texas and $180 million in Powerball.
