He should just list the banana for $2600 on Ebay and get his money back. I'd consider it at that price...only if the shipping is free though.

Love that the anchors couldn't even fake sympathy for more than a second or two.


I was just waiting for them to laugh at the moron for wasting that much money. These are the same types of morons that get a PS3/X360 system from rent-to-own places that end up costing $1,200 once it's paid off.

IMO this guy is less of a loser of his life savings of $2600, and more of a winner of a giant rasta dreadlocked banana.

SPLASH!

I too saw the banana and legitimately thought it looked pretty sweet. Not 2 grand sweet but hey, it's something, it's cool.

It doesn't make sense because he went from trying to win a Kinect to then trying to win his money back on double or nothings? Did the game prize suddenly change?

If anyone gets in contact with him, please let him know I have a bridge to sell. :)

You're too late. He already spent his $2600 life savings (:lol::lol::lol:) on an awesome rastabanana. No doubt he'd be willing to trade that baby though, if you're in the market for one...

I am surprised nobody has made a GIF of the banana saying "Peanut Butter Jelly Time!" yet.

Also, are we sure it is an actual Kinect and not a Konect or something?

To play the Devil's advocate, most everyone knows carny games are rigged and whereas gambling is more about chance, this is perhaps theft. I think most of us can vouch for getting caught up when we were younger, piling quarters into arcade machines trying to beat the game and this is similar psychologically. More importantly, why would the operator allow this guy to drop that kind of cash on his rigged game?

I keep thinking about when the guy went back the next day, and they offered him $600 back, and his reply being "Fine, I'll take it, but I want that fucking banana, too"

Depending on how people are paid, the operators for the games get a piece of the pie sometimes. After being a carnie for a few years, you might get desensitized to that kind of thing and let the fool separate themselves from their money. I hope I never become that dead inside.:cry:

Even disregarding the money, the fact that he wanted a Kinect - in mid-2013 - is all the evidence I need that the guy is not just a sucker, but a frequent one.

Based on his behavior with the carnival game and the fact that that amount was his "life savings" I'd guess he's got some kind of issues with gambling. Well, either that or his IQ half that of the carny's.

A couple weeks ago I was playing roulette ($5 minimum) in an "Indian" casino up in Black Hawk for a couple of hours. As one might expect I "lost" the $100 I took with me for playing table games, which are always a losing proposition, but since a bunch of completely unrelated Asian dudes lost about $50,000 while I was at the table I prefer to think of it as the cost for witnessing that particular spectacle. For whatever it's worth one guy in particular not only kept running through all his cash and then coming back, he actually started playing another, higher minimum, table because ours got so full he just couldn't gamble his money away fast enough anymore.

The only sad part was that even after witnessing all that I couldn't bring myself to cash out when I got up to $300 only to lose it all the one time nobody played 0...

Wow. Calling him a moron would be the understatement of the year. That guy is the biggest sucker in the world. He deserves to lose the $2600 for being so incredibly, amazingly, and ridiculously stupid. I hope for the sake of the United States, and the world for that matter, that he does not have any kids. By him not procreating he is raising the average IQ in the USA (and probably the world for that matter) by at least a few points by not diluting the gene pool with his mentally deficient genes.

This is the reason why human evolution has ceased. The morons no longer die. Instead they have more kids than the educated individuals. We as a species are ed-evolving. The movie Idiocracy has more truth to it than many realize I am sure. Seeing this kind of stuff just makes me realize that our species is doomed..heh.

Evolution doesn't "cease" and there's not really such thing as "devolution". I hope Mike Judge's next film is about smug people misunderstanding science and using to trendy pop-culture cynicism to back up their arrogance.
