Would you participate in a "cookie lottery"?

**Please read so you know what this is talking about**

ok, so me and some friends were talking and we devised a new type of lottery known as the cookie lottery.  Basically, the way it would work is you buy a special cookie, which is basically a fortune cookie, but instead of a fortune, it has money.  These cookies could cost maybe $5, and the majority of these cookies would contain $1 bills.  But you may also get lucky and find one with 5, 10, 20, 50, or 100 dollar bills inside.  Now the other catch here is the cleanliness of the bills.  They would have to be BRAND NEW in order to be safe to inadvertently eat.  But, maybe this could also be a part of the game!  Hope you don't have to spend your hard earned money on the hospital bill because your money cookie got you sick.  This would probably be highly frowned upon so we'd have to have connections with the US mint to give us brand new bills to use.  SO, what do you think?  Might it be fun?

And obviously if you live in another country you can try to start one of these up over there.  I should mention that this is probably NOT going to be started by us, but if you really like it, maybe you could start it.  It's only an idea we came up with to amuse ourselves as of now.  It's not a serious idea at all

It's worth noting that this has already been done in bars of soap.

haha This question has no right or wrong answer.  So if I mark this one correct, it's going to make some people mad.  And I never said it would not happen.  I just don't plan on starting it anytime soon.  Just thought it was something worth asking the community here about to see their thought of it :D

hahaha Yeah oh well huh?  But if you want maybe try it locally first and see how it fairs with people, then if that's successful then slowly expand it to other states and such.

Instead of having money in it, why don't you put a note in it saying something like this:**Today you will win $100** just a thought 2. any way, I think it is a great idea, you must b some smart cookies to think of this! ; ) xx

umm yeah seeing as what was it? 70% of dollar bills contain traces of cocaine in them, I'd really like to have that in my cookie :O

Nice idea though :P tis a lot better than buying a simple lottery ticket.

I think it is a great idea. Instead of the actual money in the cookie, you could put in a small piece of paper saying that they won the specified amount of money. That way there are no health risks with dirty money, and no chance of a lawsuit. Good luck.

So basically a check?  Or maybe some sort of code that you enter into paypal.  I see though.
