My Favorite Photos: Carnival Basketball

I like to play carnival games even though (especially at the smaller ones) they're nearly impossible to win. This basketball game was pretty much like that. I would like to see Michael Jordan take a try at this, or even one of those NBA players nobody cares about.

  1. My kids never understand that they are impossible to win, and after spending over $25 to try to win a prize I find myself bribing the carnie for his rock bottom price on the stupid stuffed SpongeBob.

  8. They are as rigged as can be and the prizes have more germs on them than any public toilet seat

  9. They are VERY hard to win...and even harder? The claw. Even if you get the best grip possible on a toy, those things are so loose, it just slips right through.

  10. I remember when I was about 9...my daddy took my cousin and I to a little carnival.
    One game was tossing the plastic rings over the necks of coke bottles...by a fluke, I ringed every one and when I tried to pick out my prize, the man told me to "run along, little girl..." so I found my dad and he went over with me and after an up-in-his-face talk with the man, he asked me what prize I wanted. I picked a big clock with a horse statue on the side....I wish I still had it. :)
