Stuffed banana with dreadlocks grobbohm

HENRY Gribbohm, 30, swapped his life savings ($2,600) for a huge stuffed banana with dreadlocks. He’s gone with $300 cash and his daughter to a Manchester,  New Hampshire, carnival. He played Tubs of Fun in hope of winning an Xbox Kinect. He had to toss balls into a tub. Make the ball stay in the tub and win. Simple.

But it wasn’t. He lost $300. Then he went home to get the rest of his cash. He then set about losing it all.

“You’re expecting the kids to win a few things, let the kids have a good time. It just didn’t turn out that way . It’s not possible that it wasn’t rigged.”

Next day, Mr Gribbohm returned to the carnival to complain. The stall holder gave him $600 and huge stuffed banana with dreadlocks.

Which is priceless.
