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.

I didnt win, but I still got it!
My mate's mum owned and ran a restaurant called "The Coach House". Greek place - plate smashing, belly dancing, the works.
My mum used to work there, and I would usually go with her to hang about with my mate.

Anyway, one day I turned up, to see a MASSIVE easter egg in the front entrance. It must have been about 4 foot tall.

Turn out it was a raffle, tickets were £5 each.

Me being about 11-12, didnt have that cash, and so just sat there drooling at it.

The day wound down, the place closed, and everything was being tidied up.

A shout from downstairs was heard "Do you want this thing or not?"
Peering down the stairs we see my mate's mum leaning on the easter egg.

Turns out she had kepts the "winning" ticket aside, so nobody would ever win, and had already known we would end up scoffing it.

This thing was about 2 inches thick of lovely chocolate. We managed to get through the whole thing in 1 sitting (2 12 year olds)

I think the biggest accomplishment was not being sick.
