The Bottle Uppers start going "NO NO NO" but Stamps already paid them my money and I've got the pole in my hands. I'm going forward. I hear them over the speakers saying "Oh, they're trying to finesse us! Everybody, watch these guys trying to finesse us right here!"

The pressure's on in a bigger way now: carnival workers are throwing mad shade, friends are watching, I was thrust into a new gameplan, and they've got the audience watching. I crack and missed the first time.

The announcer then says "You only get one more try for your $5 and then you're outta here!" Ffffffffff, I'm nervous now, but it gets a little easier when I see the dude trying to stand it up during this time and he's messing it up too.

I try again -- MISSED AGAIN. Laughs surround me -- shut up, the four people I care about right now.

The guy running it comes up to me and had a cool moment though. He was like "Hey...how many times you wanna play tonight? I'll just let you." I appreciated that, but I told him I'm happy to pay my part and play by the rules. I throw down another five dollars, effectively agreeing to the rules as they exist...including the rule we haven't talked about yet: ONE PRIZE PER PERSON PER DAY that's clearly up at that game still.

I try it a third time and stand it the third time. Finally. The tepid applause returns while the game-runners repeat the word WINNER a bunch. Stamps and Robert go wild.

They ask me what prize I want. I was originally going to get my brother's kids a different prize each, but after seeing the bear my brother didn't know he could fit any of them into his car. We agree that I'll get the kids a giant snake as a group prize -- that's his best chance to fit something in a car trunk, as huge as it is.

The woman running the game was mad I picked the snake. Remember what I said about short people running these games? Yeah, she couldn't get the snake down by herself. She went to get her step-ladder to grab the snake, and she still couldn't get it down. She walks away for a bit and gets a bigger ladder to finally get it down. Robert dubbed the second ladder as "the winner's ladder."

Carrying this snake back was a b****. Stamps and I wore it on our shoulders back to my vehicle, plus I had it wrapped around my neck like a scarf in our hot weather. I was pretty hot and tired when we finished carrying this.

Security came up to me as I was walking out and said "Hey, where's my prize?" I turned my head as much as my new snake let me and didn't miss a beat: "Where's my sponsorship?"

This is such a fun story - keep it coming! I wish our fairs had this game, because I can't think of ever having seen it...

You're HaRRicH! How Many Oversized Stuffed Animals Can You Strap to Your Car Before the Fair Ends?


These anime titles keep getting weirder and weirder.
Advokaiser picked Cloud in Guru and rained on my bracket.
At least I finished 20th overall!

Sorry for the delay, the game-runner just told me to come back a little later when they have a bigger crowd.

I've had that question for a long time, trying to figure out if I've become my dad or a carnival worker more...but I can still piss them off, so I don't think I've crossed that line.

Yet.
