At BYU when you graduate they make a weak attempt to show some appreciation for 4 plus year of hard work by throwing you a graduation party. At this graduation party they raffle off prizes. It's enough to get a ballroom full of prospective grads in a frenzy. The raffle process goes something like this; they present a $15 prize, they announce a number, 2 thousand people wait with baited breath, then 1999 people let out a disgruntled sigh. Repeating this process had everyone foaming at the mouth.
Then it happened, a sure win, they announced a free kids prize for anyone with a kid. the above picture doesn't do it justice but, In a matter of seconds group hysteria sunk in, every couple with a child hoisted their new born babies in the air like they were Charlie Buckets, and their baby was a golden ticket.
And what did they get for risking the general well being of their posterity? either a jump rope or a frisbee....Ridiculous.
