    If you didn't hate the people that win the lottery enough already, here's this story. Timothy Poole, a registered sex offender who looks exactly like anyone you know's would-be drawing of a cartoon sex offender, won a state lottery this week in exactly the state you'd imagine. Everyone say it together now: Florida.

    The man, who actually looks happier in his mugshot than he does holding his $3 million oversized check, was arrested and found guilty of two counts of attempted sexual assault of girls under the age of 12.

    There are no laws preventing felons from winning any state lotteries (or from ruining your day by making you jealous of convicted sex offenders).
