"World's most famous McDonald's employee" Mirlande Wilson—who claims she has Maryland's winning Mega Millions ticket but hasn't decided whether or not she'll accept her winning yet—almost definitely didn't win the lottery. But, damn, she has totally won the lottery-centric news cycle. Check out the latest nonchalant multi-millionaire quotes she gave to The New York Post about her supposedly winning ticket:
"I'm still looking for it. I haven't even looked in my uniform pants yet," the flaky single mom of seven admitted. "I'm still looking everywhere to find it, in my purse, everywhere."
Keep in mind "it" refers to $105 million.
Even if Mirlande doesn't care about "it," her children apparently do:
"I wanted to look for it, I was crying. She wouldn't let us. It's a lot of money," lamented her disappointed daughter Stephanie, 15.
That took an unexpectedly dark turn. Good material for a twisted novel about emotionally fraught multigenerational "inheritances" that alludes heavily to the concept of original sin and the Parable of the Prodigal Son, though. [NYPost, image via AP]
