Shittiest. Prize. Ever.

It's no B.S. - a Staten Island woman who won a sweepstakes ended up with 7-1/2 tons of horse manure.

Ina Adamshvili of South Beach considered herself blessed when she found out she won Turkey Hill Ice Cream's 75th anniversary contest.


Some winners got 75 homemade apple pies. Others scored Amish buggy rides. Adamshvili won the manure.

The married mother of two quickly decided to trade her dung in for dollars. The company found that manure was going for $9 a ton, so they paid her $67.50 for the glop.

Adamshvili had no complaints.

The Russian immigrant said she hadn't felt so lucky since she won an immigration lottery giving her the right to come to the United States.

"The first time we [won a] green card, second time we [won] this prize," she told the Staten Island Advance.

Adamshvili had few doubts about what she would do with the money....

"I'm going to buy more ice cream," she told the Advance.
I wish I were that easy to please. I would have preferred the pies. The apple pies.
