Yes yes yes this rocks!!!!

Last night my mum opened some Utterly Butterly margarine and won £20,000 as a result!!!!!!

Utterly Butterly apparently have been running some competition, not like anyone really knew about it but anyway we picked up the winning 'tub' from Spar and thanks to my dad noticing the winning foil lid on the kitchen side, we won the 1st prize of 20 grand! hahaha

I'd just like to say ner ner and wooo!

This doesn't mean i'll be buying drinks at MAN but I guess it could mean a few trips in biz class  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

So what you all gonna say, im looking at a few certain people here. You gonna make some non witty remark or will this even be worthy of a shaft? Frankly I couldn't care less, your just jealous!!  Laugh out loud

Soo at the moment £20,000 GBP =

€28,620 Euro
$35,500 USD
$46,400 Canadian Dollar
$48,200 Australian Dollar

Here's the winning product!





















Cost of margarine 93p  Big thumbs up

It's not a con, we've been speaking to 'Utterly Butterly' and they've confirmed our win!

This is where your problems start. Who gets the money and how is it spilt and what on?

Who bought the marge? are they the winner or is it the person who opened it. Or is it the person who discovered the wrapper with the prize on? Then there is the split. Will it be split evenly or has your dad got his eyes on that sports car he's always wanted?

Problems, problems, problems.....

US$35,000... that would put a very nice dent in my student loans. Would you care to make a donation? I am sure it would be a nice tax write off. You can keep the margarine though.

Last year I got the same foil lid but the company wouldn't accept it because it was ripped. Hope you have better luck with your claim, but mine was ripped less than yours.
