One man never imagined he would spend his life savings on a giant stuffed banana with dreadlocks.

Henry Gribbohm, 30, lost $2600 – his entire savings – on a game called Tubs of Fun at a Manchester, NH., carnival. He wanted to win an Xbox Kinect (retail value of around $100), but quickly lost $300 on the game when the balls he tossed, bounced out of the tubs. Instead of cutting his losses, he went home to get the rest of his savings, which he lost as well in a few rounds of double or nothing.

What's worse, betting your life savings, or that your life's savings is $2600?
What's worse coming to the conclusion that the game is rigged or thinking they can't adjust it so that it is no longer rigged before inspected?
