NH Man Henry Gribbohm Loses Life Savings On Carnival Game in Manchester, NH


And to further prove the point that there is a sucker born every minute comes  Henry Gribbohm … In the immortal words of Dr. Ruth Westheimer , “sometimes a banana is just a banana.”

Henry Gribbohm claims he lost his life savings, $2,600, on a game at a carnival he attended in Manchester, NH and all he has to show for it is a stuffed banana with dreadlocks. said Gribbohm says, “It’s not possible that it wasn’t rigged.” Actually, it’s not possible that this dude has issues. Yup, ever the victim.  Who in their right mind says that something is rigged then continues to play the game. Gribbohm claims he even went home, got more cash and came back to the carnival and lost even more money. GOOD GRIEF. What is the definition of crazy, doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result? C’mon man, who loses their life savings on a friggin carnival game?

The 30-year-old from Epsom says he kept trying to win back his money by going double or nothing. He dropped $300 in just a few minutes, then says he went home to get $2,300 more and soon lost all of that as well.

“You just get caught up in the whole ‘I’ve got to win my money back.’”

HOLD THE PHONE, OR THE BANANA. The guy claims he was trying to win an X-box. As stated at The Daily Caller, how much could one of these cost, $300? So this dude spends $2600? Oh yea, way to mitigate your damages. News flash to this fool, I bet you could have got one on sale at Walmart, rather than rolling the nice at a carnival to try and win it on the cheep. You made your banana, now embrace it.

Of course what was  Gribbohm’s response to his ignorant actions … to file a police report of course. How many times must we say this … STEP AWAY FROM THE CARNY GAME!!!
