Scratch the Nature Boy

Nature Boy Ric Flair, Mr. Wooooooo! himself, will be featured on a new $5 scratch off lottery ticket.

Flair, who lives in Charlotte, intends to do a number of promotional appearances to help sell more of the tickets, appropriately entitled "WOOOOOOO!"

The ticket, which has eight top prizes of $100,000, goes on sales Sept. 22.

Lottery executive director Tom Shaheen said the ticket could help attract new players.

"We are always looking for ways to appeal to new players so we can maximize sales and generate as much money as possible for education.”
 
Players have 16 numbers to play on each ticket, which corresponds with Flair’s 16 championship belts.

The odds of winning any prize from the ticket are 1 in 3.63. The odds of wining one of the top prices are 1 in 390,000.

Re: DemLib

DemLib says "Are we supposed to use our real names on here?"

yes.

Re: Scratch the Nature Boy

WooOOOOoooOOOOoooo!

Re:

Are all taxes voluntary, like the lottery? If so, I think I want to be excused from all of them.

Re: Scratch the Nature Boy

Oh, gigglebox, I've seen your postings... you are a fountain of mirth and fun!

Re: "DemLib" is paid Republican, and neither Dem or Lib

Is someone accusing me of being a democrat? Wow, that is interesting.

Of course not. You're being accused of being an obvious Republican that signed up as "DemLib" out of a lack of integrity.

I actually am a "gigglebox." Are you a real "DemLib" or just more of the same nastiness we've seen from Dallas Woodhouse, Joe Wilson and the rest of your teabagging party?

Re: "DemLib" is paid Republican, and neither Dem or Lib

Is someone accusing me of being a democrat? Wow, that is interesting. Your comment is very adult. I suppose GiggleBox is your real name, right? Or, I guess I should have said "left." Sorry, but your juvenile response is going nowhere, so have a great day.

Re: "DemLib" is paid Republican, and neither Dem or Lib

What does that have to do with the article?

That's apparent. You couldn't win a Choke the Chicken scratch off with both hands, and not for lack of trying "DemLib." Jealous much fake Democrat?

Why would someone even make a fake name for the opposition? Nothing to be proud of for your team? You're pathetic. Go team McCain! You'll win one day.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Loser.

Re: Scratch the Nature Boy

Did Mr. Nature Boy receive remunerations for using his likeness and his promotional appearances?

If so, is this really a lottery for the 'benefit of education'?

The saying I always like was 'tax on those who are bad at math'.

Not that I'm opposed to legalized gambling... but why does the state get to run a multi-million dollar monopoly?

Re: "DemLib," paid republican AFP, you are neither Dem or Lib,

It is funny that you should say that, dem libs are always saying funny things like that. But, I still don't know what you are talking about. What does that have to do with the article? Maybe some other of dem libs would like to know also.

"DemLib," paid republican AFP, you are neither Dem or Lib, LIAR

If you had a point, you'd make it as a proud Republican.

Oops.

Re: Scratch the Nature Boy

Actually it is a tax on stupidity.

Re:

Interesting, but still incoherent. Please explain to me why I should be ashamed. I would be very interested in hearing your theory. It sounds like you may be a fraud, my friend.

Re:

No precious. "DemLib" describes your rabid right wing commentary perfectly. Stay ashamed to be you. We all understand.

Re:

And how does your remark relate to the story? And what are you talking about fake name? Are we supposed to use our real names on here? Strange response.

Re:

Submitted by DemLib

Just another tax on the poor.

No. That's whoever is paying you for your fake name to make sure we don't have a Public Option. The Insurance Companies you work for to pay the salary of Dallas Woodhouse is a tax on the poor and middle class.

Get real.

Re: Scratch the Nature Boy

Ric Flair for governor.

Re: call them what they are

So true "taxpayer" just like if you never have sex, you don't have to make a choice. I heart Authoritarians.

call them what they are

"...start calling them what the are - Gamblers"

More like losers. If you don't play, you can't lose.

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Holding out for Greg the Hammer $1 tickets.

If Wahoo McDaniels signs up, it should be $20 a play. I still feel bad Abdula the Butcher stuck a cigar in his eye.

Re: Scratch the Nature Boy

And? If they choose to spend their money that way, what business is it of yours?

Re: Scratch the Nature Boy

Isn't it time Lottery Executive Director Tom Shaheen stops calling the people who buy these tickets "Players" and start calling them what the are - Gamblers? Changing the name doesn't change what they're doing - it is what it is.
