The lottery ticket vendor in the lobby of my office building keeps selling me defective tickets.
They never win.
I think the whole thing is rigged, so that hardly anyone ever wins.
Wait a minute, you mean that's how it's supposed to work?
I need to start a lottery. Sounds like a great business, from the other side of the counter.
Wait another minute, you mean the government grants itself a legal monopoly on lotteries?
If I run one, they call it a numbers racket and throw me in the hoosegow?
Mel Brooks was right: It's good to be the King.
