Yes, Folks, we have another Publisher’s Clearing House WINNER!
And – just as I suspected – the winner of the February 28, 2011, Publisher’s Clearing House Sweepstakes is a woman who lives in a magnificent home.
I’m beginning to think PCH chooses its winners according to the neighborhoods in which they live because their homes make great backdrops for the camera. I can just imagine Publisher’s Clearing House crews cruising the United States in search of areas that would be “worthy” of winner status.
Random? I think not!
Check out past PCH winners. All of the Publisher’s Clearing House winners I’ve seen live in homes so beautiful they could have graced the covers of “beautiful home” magazines. These home owners, even if they had previously lost their jobs, could have sold their mansions and made enough money to purchase a smaller home, whereas those of us who live in hot dog houses (the name my granddaughter, Sarah, assigned to mobile homes), if we lose our jobs, are forced to live in cardboard boxes.
Though I enter PCH Online, I don’t think I stand a chance of winning the Publisher’s Clearing House sweepstakes because of where I live. I’ve never seen a PCH van pull into a mobile home community with a camera crew. Come to think of it I’ve never seen a PCH van pull into a trailer court to hand over a million dollars to its occupants either. Never.
So, based on my observations, my chances of winning the Publisher’s Clearing House Sweepstakes is nil.
Please. Anybody. I’d love for SOMEBODY to prove me wrong by showing me a photo of the PCH van pulling in front of a home that sits either in a trailer court or in a mobile home community. I’ll bet you can’t find one that wasn’t morphed Photoshopically (yes, I made up that word – it’s what us trailer folks do in our spare time – make up words when we’re frustrated).
Actually, I’d love for Publisher’s Clearing House to prove me wrong by choosing a winner who lives in a home that does NOT reside in a beautiful community. Maybe PCH thinks that living in a trailer court or a mobile home community is the sign of a LOSER, filled with drug addicts, drug pushers, or the mentally deranged. Publisher’s Clearing House is looking for WINNERS after all.
Maybe the reason I never win The Publisher’s Clearing House Sweepstakes is because I don’t live in a cracker house (another name Sarah called regular houses) – I live in a hot dog house. I could argue the point that Oscar Meyer Wieners are winners, because people want to be them (Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Meyer Wiener – from the commercial). I wonder if John Mayer is related to Oscar.
Sorry. It appears as if I’ve gone off on some kind of tangent. It’s what we mentally deranged mobile homers do sometimes.
In defense of the woman who won the February 28th Publisher’s Clearing House Sweepstakes, she did lose her job in October. So it’s really OK with me that she won. I knew PCH would be concerned about my opinion.
