Man Loses Life Savings Playing Carnival Game, Promptly Files Police Report

This is one of the sadder things I’ve seen in a while, but also one of the funnier things. This gentleman who is holding the stuffed banana in the video lost $2600 playing a carnival game called Tubs Of Fun.’ A few questions immediately arise, especially given that it was just $5 to play the game. One of those questions would be why he didn’t stop say after the first $2000 was lost? The man was so frustrated that he immediately filed a police report saying that he was conned out of the money.

Another question would be why didn’t he just use a fifth of this money to go buy his kids an X-BOX Kinect? Oh well, it makes for great Internet fodder.

The quote at the end is genius. “For ONCE in my life I happened to become that sucker.”
