Step Right Up, Try Your Luck!

“That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, it’s the old cups and ball game, step right up! A game of chance, a game of skill, just keep your eye on the little red pill! For just ten sunflower seeds, you heard me right folks, just ten sunflower seeds gets you a chance to guess where the ball is! So easy even a child can do it, how about you sir? Why no, this game isn’t rigged, it’s totally on the level — in fact, the last player to play against me did extremely well … for a while.”

    It’s a scam, even if you win a gerbil will grab your winnings and run off.

      We used to have public service radio commercials here in NYC that would say “you can’t win at three card monty” referring to the street cons with card games.

        I was raised in semi-rural Arkansas and even *I* know you can’t win!
