Holstein and Company Mornings

Maria Carreiro of Toronto thought she had won big bucks in last week’s Lotto Max drawing. She checked her numbers at a machine where she bought the ticket and thought she won $40,000. When she asked the clerk and manager to double-check her numbers they seemed confused, so Maria said, “Never mind, I’ll go home.” When she told her daughter she won $40,000, the teen naturally jumped for joy — then decided to double-check the numbers online. That’s when Maria discovered she’d actually won 40-million. After one last run to the store to scan her ticket and verify, she called up her husband — who then quit his job.

You may recall the story of a British hamster that rose from the dead on Easter Sunday. Lisa Kilbourne-Smith and boyfriend James Davis (of Painswick, England) were taking care of Tink the hamster while friends were out of town and they discovered the day before Easter that the animal was not moving. But they discovered the next morning that Tink had eaten her way out of her paper casket, dug out of her shallow grave and took shelter in a nearby box to protect herself from freezing temperatures. Now a veterinarian said the hamster’s Easter resurrection can be attributed to the animal going into a hibernation state, which is often mistaken for death among hamster owners.
