This is the funniest story I’ve heard in months.
It comes from Hungary, courtesy of London’s Daily Telegraph newspaper.
In a nutshell, a town’s entire police force has quit in Hungary after winning more than £10 million (translates to about $16.3 million, U.S. dollars) in the lottery.
The 15-strong squad in Budaors scooped the jackpot with their ticket On Oct. 12 and all resigned on the spot.
Police chiefs have scrambled back-up units to the region until more full-time officers can be recruited.
It was the sixth biggest win in Hungarian lottery history.
GAMES WE PLAY:
Mega Millions has reset its jackpot to $12 million after the Oct. 16 $200 million win by a ticket holder in Virginia. Next draw is Oct. 19.
Not sure about what the jackpot amount is in Hungary though.
I work with cops (sometimes) as a newspaper reporter and they have a tough job. I’d quit too if I won a jackpot.
