Powerball Winner Gets Fishy Deal

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The Lincoln, Nebraska, winner of the $365 million Powerball lottery just got a little richer.

Without even knowing who the winner is, the Long John Silver’s restaurant chain is hoping to make him or her a company spokesperson.

The company wants the winner, sight-unseen, to advertise their Buttered Lobster Bites to play up the pitch that you don’t have to be a millionaire to enjoy a taste of the good life.

A spokesman for Long John Silver’s says the position would be a paid job, but they’re hoping the winner will forgo the dough and have their salary donated to a charity of their choice.

The restaurant believes hiring a spokesperson before they’ve been located is a first in the history of business.
