  • A Promotion Gone Wrong

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory?id=2244469

    PLEASANT PRAIRIE, Wis. Jul 27, 2006 (AP) What do you get a 288-pound man for his birthday? How about 288 pounds of jelly beans? His family didn't plan it that way, but when Mike Lively became the 1 millionth person to tour the Jelly Belly Center on his birthday Wednesday, he won his weight's worth of the sweet treats.

    The 41-year-old Indiana man, who claims he weighs only 278 pounds, said he wasn't planning on sharing his windfall.

    "Fork it out to my family and kids," said Lively, a steel worker, when asked what he would do with his prize. "None of the guys at work are getting any."

    The factory reached the million-visitor milestone in exactly five years, according to store manager Mary Plebanek.
