  • Whoever wins the lottery is going to end up in bad shape tha's for sure.
  • Alright everybody, Tesse! Please draw a slip from the box.
  • Of course Mr. Summers.
  • Wait no, it wasn't fair! Bill didn't have enough time to draw! Everybody saw that!
  • I'm sorry Tesse, but you can't argue about the rules.
  • Here Tesse won the lottery because the paper had her name on it , but she tries to argue that it wasn't fair. Sadly, she is now going to get stoned.
