Coconut Shy

:icondavid-essex:
David-Essex Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012
I recently visited my local fairground and couldn't resist having a go on the Coconut Shy. The man running it looked honest and I had a few pounds to spare.

Anyway, with each throw, I clearly hit every coconut hard enough for it to fall from it's stand. Yet they did not.

I could clearly see that the coconuts were in fact bricks that had been sculpted into a coconut shape and had brown carpet and dog hair stuck to them. Now I understand why the tennis balls were coming back at me after every throw.

How come? Do I have rights with this?

All carnival games are rigged, that's how they make their money in the first place. :iconfacehoofplz:

I only won one once. I got a giant stuffed pikachu.
I should have gotten the Charizard.

After losing my ass in a carnival fishing game, I decided that it would be better if I just bought the giant stuffed octopus online instead.

I asked him in advance if it was rigged and he said ' You wouldn't believe how rigged it is' . Like a fool, I thought he was kidding.

Wow... talk about shameless.

I think Barnum himself said that "There's a sucker born every minute." Sorry you ended up being one of them.

OMG a fair game fucked you over. Isn't that their purpose in life?

Unless you were emasculated in front of your girl friend, cry my a fucking river jack off. Should've thrown it harder.

I played a similar game but with bottles. they were metal and I don't know how thick, but I didn't realize they'd be that hard to knock over! Needless to say, it's the fair's game, they set the rules. Anything short of gluing them to the table is still fair game I think (no pun intended).
But yup. Fair games are rip off scams and the one giant prize toy you want is better off bought online, it'll be cheaper that way.

you can't possibly expect to win a fair ground game without playing the game properly, i advise you, before you visit again, to craft some metallic spheres and cover them with green felt, when the shys owner isn't looking switch them with the regular balls and hurl those metallic nut crackers as hard as you can. now you can laugh as those concrete coconuts are disintegrated before your very eyes. for fair measure 'accidentally' throw your last ball at the man running the shy and while he's unconscious you can claim your just rewards.

If you have sex with a coconut tree without it consenting, is it rape? And if it's not because rape is a construct which does not apply to trees, then does it for animals, provided they do not actively struggle?

Think long and hard about this one.
