The Kansas Lottery is running a promotion here that I think consists of registering for Final Four tickets by buying scratch-off lottery tickets:
   "It's MARCH ANGRYNESS TIME!!!! Buy a scratch-off ticket and you'll be registered for tickets to the "FINAL TWO PLUS TWO!!!"
    "MARCH ANGRYNESS is even bigger than the "SUPERB Bowl!!!"
The trick is they splice another voice saying the non-offending words(Angryness, two plus two, superb etc) into the audio, because for legal reasons the copyrighted names(March Madness, Final Four, Super Bowl)cannot be used to promote gambling.
 
They've done this now for a couple of years.

March Angriness??  Could they get any lamer?  How about March Mayhem?  Much better.
 
Reminds me of this Japanese woman who in broken English told me that her favorite Steinbeck novel was "The Anger of Grapes."  Kinda loses something in the translation.

"March Angryness" is funny.  Kind of the way "March Perturbedness" or "March Disturbedness" would be.  They could've used "March Anger", but that doesn't sound as funny to me.

If they could have waited a month, they could have gone with April Angst.
