Most people realize that carnival games are not the place to invest your life savings. According to CBS News, Henry Gribbohm is not like most people. He dropped his entire life savings, which amounted to about $2,600, on a bucket toss type game and ended up with just a stuffed banana.

"For once in my life, I happened to become that sucker," said Mr. Gribbohm.

Yes, he seriously said that. The guy who spent $2,600 trying to win a couple hundred dollar Xbox connect has never been a sucker before now. This is, according to him, the first time he's ever been taken.

Now, it may well be that it's practically impossible to actually win the big prize Mr. Gribbohm was shooting for. But, how is it possible he didn't figure that out after the first $300 he wasted?

And, who would withdraw his entire life savings to head back and play the same game again?

Wow. I mean, seriously, wow.
