“The lottery gives you a 1 in 200 million chance you won’t go to work. Alcohol gives you 1 in 5”

"The lottery gives you a 1 in 200 million chance you won’t go to work tomorrow. Alcohol gives you 1 in 5”—that is, the five days of Monday through Friday—is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. The full saying was posted on Twitter by West Lee on November 28, 2012 and has an extra line:

“The lottery gives you a 1 in 200 million chance you won’t go to work tomorrow. Alcohol gives you 1 in 5. You play your game; I’ll play mine.”
