William Post was 96 when he passed away today. I am sure most of us have had one of his famous pastries he helped create, the Pop Tart.

Well, type his name into Wikipedia and prepare yourself to read about a different William Post, good enough to be a Hollywood movie:


Enjoy. smile


William "Bud" Post III (April 5, 1939 – January 15, 2006) was the winner of a Pennsylvania Lottery jackpot worth $16.2 million. Shortly afterward his brother tried to have him murdered for the inheritance. Post survived, and was successfully sued by an ex-girlfriend for a share of the winnings. By the end of his life, Post was $1 million in debt.[1]

Moral of the story:

If you ever win the lottery, don't tell anyone!
