Dumbest Man Alive
Let me tell you a story about the stupidest man alive. He is not, surprisingly from Crawford, Texas, but instead was spotted in Barcelona, Spain.
In Barcelona there is a large pedestrian stree called "Las Ramblas". On this street are a variety of little shops: Florists, Newstands, Bird Sellers... there are also alot of buskers and human statues trying to get your attention. Finally, there are the shell games. You all know this game well, a guy has three little boxes, one of which has a ball underneath it... "find the ball, win double your money", and then he quickly moves the boxes around to deke you out.
In theory, this game would be kinda fun. Except its a total con. The guys work in teams of 5. One person runs the game, while the other 4 pretend to play. Its obvious which guys are his associates. When his buddy's are playing, the ball is really obvious. Oh, I should also say its a 50 euro minimum bet... Anyways so this guy is watching these fake players and thinks "Oh, 50 euros, easy money". So he steps up and points to one box, the 5 con men quickly swarm him as he counts out the 50 euros, and one guy obviously switches the boxes while he is distracted. He flips the box, nothing there...
Final Score: Crooks 1... Moron 0
The funiest thing is that there are these giant posters on the street with pictures of the shell game and which say "Warning!!! This is not a game"
