Genevieve Marie: caddisfly: The face of pure, unadulterated avarice and rapacity:[media.cmgdigital.com image 400x300]Let's hope he goes away for a long, long time. For the children's sake.Oh god, that breaks my heart. That poor dude. Probably making minimum wage or even less, and just trying to do his job.It takes a scary authoritarian personality to look at that dude and decide to entrap him into doing something that's technically not legal but really not that big a deal. I seriously doubt that dude knew it was illegal.
Louisiana_Sitar_Club: If the guy owns the booth, didn't he just sell one of his Hello Kitty dolls for forty bucks?
SupersonicII: Oklahoma is insane about carnival games.Scroll down the comments on this article: http://www.artofmanliness.com/2011/09/26/how-to-win-state-fair-games/ for some comments from the guy who is largely responsible for this.
IRQ12: Where's the fraud? I would think had he *not* given him the hello kitty there would be an arrest for fraud.I could see a charge of theft if it's not an independently operated booth and his employers wanted him charged.
ReapTheChaos: How is this fraud? Fraud would be if the game was rigged so you could never win. $40 for a Hello Kitty doll might be a little high, but two people agreeing on a price for an item is anything but fraud.
