Winning Lottery Numbers So Obvious In Hindsight

RICHMOND, VA—According to numerous sources nationwide, the winning lottery numbers in Wednesday night’s $448 million Powerball Jackpot are, in hindsight, completely and maddeningly self-evident. “Jesus Christ, 58-5-25-59-30 and powerball 32! Of course!” said Richmond local Alexis Tavish, 41, noting that those particular numbers were a “total layup” and were practically staring her in the face the whole time. “How could I be so stupid? That 58 at the beginning? Talk about a gimme. And don’t even get me started on the 25 or the 30.
