Talking Need some suggestions

Ok, I have had an enormous financial windfall, won $2 on the Californian lottery last night and I need some help in working out what to do with such an amount.

I know I should be sensible and put it into my retirement fund, but just for once I want to live on the edge and do something outrageous. I was thinking of refurbishing my entire lounge room, ie new sofa, coffee tables etc. with IKEA furniture but figure if I did that Pulaski would think that I am trailer park trash.

So what should I do with this huge amount of cash??? I was thinking of getting into my car and driving 6 hours to Vegas and putting it on the roulette table but can't decide whether I should go for red or black.

Would it stretch to buying the CD single by Clay Aitken? That's keep up your trailer trash image

Both are wonderful suggestions, but guess I am after something a bit more rewarding, after all it took a lot of effort on my behalf to come by that $2.

Don't listen to the quite evidently inexperienced posters on this forum who wouldn't know how to begin to be trailer-trash like wot I is - heck they can't even spell it

Spend your $2 on a colourful - excuse me, colorful - length of nylon rope. Attach one end to any secure hook-like object adjacent to your front door, and the other to a tree or lamp post at some distance away. Next time you win the lottery you can buy pegs and then you will be able to display your laundry - undies are especially popular - for the benefit of passing drivers, thus distracting them from road-rage and possibly saving many lives over the course of your life.

If you are unable to buy the pegs, please note that an ordinary stapler, such as may be found on any pen-pusher's desk or borrowed briefly from Office Depot, can be used to secure said undergarments to the line. This has the added health benefit of furnishing your undies with small air holes, essential to the hygiene-conscious citydweller in these long summer months.

Thank you

Regards

Scarlett, I do like that idea of the colorful rope, as I would enjoy displaying my undies to the entire world. Only thing that concerns me is if they catch the wind the trailer might take off, as they are on the largish size. BTW have you ever listened to Jeff Foxworthy? He has some very good redneck material.

Rob, I was thinking about using the leftover funds to paint my trailer. Waddya think about gold lame with black racing stripes??

Rob, you're obviously a very sophisticated man to come up with such a smashing decorating style.
