This is a question Crappy Prizes

Competitions, raffles, give-aways... sure the prizes look great, but don't they always turn out a bit crap should you happen to win them?

The last raffle I bought tickets for, they'd just given away the all-expenses paid weekend in New York when my number came up. Rushing up to find out what I'd won, I was a little disappointed to be handed a box of "Biscuits for Cheese". Especially as they were busy serving the cheese course (complete with biscuits) as they drew the raffle.

Wasn't technically my prize....
We had Colin Murray, a 'top celebrity' at our Freshers Ball at university. I was young, naive and very drunk and when I saw him playing one of the fairground rides I ran up next to him like a weird stalker. He won this game and got a crappy cuddly donkey which he then gave to me. I was so amazed at this claim to fame (sad I know) that I spent the rest of the night telling everyone who I spoke to that ColinMurrayHadGivenMeADonkey!! I also kept on sneaking backstage and pestering the poor bloke as I clutched this toy.

Anyways, next morning arrives. My prize for my drunkeness was Colin Murray telling the listeners of Radio 1 that this really annoying girl who he had given a donkey too would just not leave him alone for the whole evening. He wished more than anything that he hadn't given it to me as I apparently was a complete pest.

Lesson learned.
