You’ve just won $273 million in the Mega Millions lottery. What are you going to do first? Well, if you’re New Jersey resident Michael J. Weirsky, you’re going to go buy a new car. But not a Lambo or a Ferrari for this guy.
Nope, the delightfully Cliff Clavin-sounding Weirsky knows that you need to obey your Raptor. “First thing I’m doing is buying my new pickup, a Ford Raptor,” he said. “It’s something I’ve wanted for a long time, and I’m gonna get it.”
Maybe after that he’ll get a little crazy, but that’s down the road. A Hennessey Velociraptor might be more fitting of someone of his newfound bank account balance.
The rest of the story’s worth a watch too. Like how he briefly lost the winning ticket.
