Man Loses Life Savings ($2,600) to Win Banana With Dreadlocks

man-banana-dreadlocksHenry Gribbohm is living the American dream. The New Hampshire man lost $2,600 at the carnival playing that game where you toss softballs into a tub. From CBS Boston:

When he practiced he says it was easy, but something changed when he started playing for the prize and the balls kept popping out.

The 30-year-old from Epsom says he kept trying to win back his money by going double or nothing. He dropped $300 in just a few minutes, then says he went home to get $2,300 more and soon lost all of that as well.

Amazing. He went back the next day to complain and the game’s operator gave him back $600 – and apparently a giant stuffed banana with dreadlocks which is the greatest door prize in the history of the world. I wonder if “banana with dreadlocks” is this carnival’s “giant ass panda.”

Since this is America, Gribbohm filed a report with the police and is considering a lawsuit.

“For once in my life I happened to become that sucker,” said Gribbohm. “It was foolish for putting up my life savings.”

Imagine if this started a movement to reform carnival games. This guy is a hero. Also, that banana looks stoned and I’m pretty sure that is racist.
