RedStrip Beer is having some sort of island wide competition involving the collection of bottle caps. The grand prize is a brand new H2 Hummer - appealling to the "all fi dem self" nature in most of us. Wouldn't it be better to have the prizes be 20 cheap cars instead of just one expensive one?

  1. what determines a winner?

  2. collecting the caps is pretty easy for any average drinker. At the end they most likely are going to put all the entries in a drum, shuffle them and randomly pick one out.

  3. And you bet that the winner can't gas the hummer when they get it!

  4. Agreed! Especially with the price of gas the way it is nowadays!

  5. Lots of little prizes is one of my favourite ideas.

    I was once stuck in a little town in Spain, waiting for a bus, while every radio and tv in the region was blasting hours worth of winning numbers in some lottery where hundreds of people won 1000 euros.

  6. For real, it would benefit more people it they gave away a couple of cheeper cars.

  7. yes 20 cheap cars is better because then you could have a fleet of taxis.
    And I don't want to imagine driving a hummer on narrow roads, around blind corners. Think of it, a Hummer in Fern Gully. I guess the winner wouldn't even drive it, just wash it and look at it.
