    Redneck loses his entire live savings, $2,600 on a carnival game.

    It’s hard to feel sorry for Henry Gribbohm, who recently lost the entirety of his life savings — about 2,600 bucks — on a carnival game.
    For starters, it’s tough to pity people who are vanquished by their own stupidity.
    Also, he didn’t exactly leave the carnival empty-handed. Check out the awesome stuffed, dreadlocked banana he won.
    He may have lost a whackload of cash, but he gained a giant, yellow (and possibly stoned-out-of-his-peel) rasta-nana friend.
    Instead of skulking home in shame and calling a family member for a loan, Gribbohm amazingly went to the New Hampshire media claiming he had been duped out of money by crooked carnies.
    The saga began, he told reporters, when he spotted a snazzy new Xbox Kinect that he hoped to win from a game called Tubs of Fun, which requires players to toss bouncy balls into buckets.
    Like all carnival games, it’s a lot harder than it looks. Rather than do the sensible thing after botching a few throws — chuckle, shrug and go ride Tilt-a-Whirl — Gribbohm kept playing, determined to win back his money, and the Xbox peripheral, with a series of increasingly dunderheaded double-or-nothing attempts.
    The game was rigged, he insists.
    “Ya think?!†responds anyone who’s ever been to a carnival.

    What this article doesn't mention is the fact that he spent $300, then went home to get more money. He left the carnival and went to get more money.

    He could have had the kinetic for less than half of the first $300 he lost.

    How does he remember to breath?

    It's funny that he is such a dope but even funnier that he chose to draw the worlds attention to what a moron he is. Even if he won after say $1000, he'd still be out a lot of money had he just purchased it outright.
