The much-admired comedy 'Father Ted' has a hilarious skit about a car raffle.

Fr Ted and Father Dougal rig the raffle to ensure they win the car, in the second episode of season two of the hit series.

The dastardly plan involves Ted calling out the number 11 when the raffle results are announced. This number will be Dougal's.
