But here’s one could possibly be the silliest thing ever. A UK man won two million Euros in the lottery — that’s three million Canadian dollars — and gave half of it to his daughter. The daughter took her share — that’s 1.5 million Canadian dollars — and stitched every single Euro into the dress.
Apart from the fact that the dress is, (let’s face it) not the nicest looking dress, what happens when she’s bored of it? Can she take those bills off and take them to the bank? I asked our finance editor, who, after looking at me strangely, said that it would be up to the bank to decide on whether to accept the money. But he did say that retailers would be within their rights not to accept extremely damaged bills.
It just seems that in a time when we’re only now coming out of a recession and companies are deliberating throwing away clothes the one million euro could have been spent in a much better way.
I’m pretty sure that this is a big joke or a publicity stunt.
What you think of the dress? And if you won the lottery, how would you spend the money?
