This is a question Conned

Have you carried out a successful con? Perhaps you hustled a few quid off a stranger, or defrauded a multi-national company. Or have you been taken for the wide-eyed, naive rube that you are?

Being a Blackpool lad
The promenade is full of cons. Here is one of my favorite con game.

There are people who hand out these little laminated business cards who often say to me "You look like a tourist" which annoys me immediatly as that is incorrect.

If you talk to them, they send you in the general direction of the stall they work for, where there is a game, which consists of four balls, and a slanted piece of wood, with pins in it, where you put the balls at the top, and they fall to the bottom into seperate areas, all numbered... with all odd numbers.

This is when it starts to become quite suspicious.

You look at the prizes at the top, and all of the good prizes are numbered with odd numbers, and crappy prizes are numbered with even ones and the number of the prize you win, is made from the total from where the balls fall into (if you follow what I mean)

There is no way in a game, with an even amount of balls, which choose only odd numbers, to have a total which is an odd number.

But hey, you win a prize every time! So roll up, roll up, to my favorite seafront scam!

Ah, about 3 freaks tried this on me in one day.
I was almost fooled by one sweaty cunt.

Before they said anything, they said 'Don't worry, I'm not a weirdo'.

Yeah. Course you're not, fatty.
