Carnival dumbassery (landlubber edition)

    For once, we're talking actual carnivals and not poop-filled cruise ships.
    New Hampshire man tries to win an XBox 360 at a carnival and fails miserably.
    As in $2,600 miserably.
    He spent his life savings and all he has to show for it is a stuffed, dreadlocked banana.
    This almost reads like an Onion story.

    “For once in my life I happened to become that sucker,” Gribbohm said.

    Yes. I'm sure it was just the once.

    God that's funny. At what point do you consider how much it costs to just go buy the damn Xbox?

    And a photo of Mr. Gribbohm. Somehow, I doubt this is the first time in his life he's blown a ton of money on something related to Rastafarian culture.

  4. Seeing a few Facebook posts to "Like" a CollegeHumor.com page so he can get his money back.

    I have a feeling his last girlfriend also had the name 'Tubs of Fun'

    At 30, his life savings equated to $2,600?

    I'm sure he can find a way to get his money back.

    Gribbohm lost $300, WBZ-TV reports, "went home to get $2,300 more and soon lost all of that as well."

    Expanding the thread to include Mr. Ding-A-Ling and Sno-Cone Joe's epic brawl:

    Lifted verbatim from WNYT News Channel 13's FB status update:

    "An ice cream truck rivalry in Gloversville ended with two people under arrest after a fight between Mr. Ding-A-Ling and Sno-Cone Joe. Police say two Sno Cone Joe operators are facing charges after confrontations that included one of them yelling "This is my town!" at a Mr. Ding-A-Ling driver."
