CollegeHumor, Facebook Likes, And A Stuffed Banana With Dreadlocks

The story of Henry Gribbohm, a 30-year-old New Hampshire man who lost his life savings of $2,600 on a carnival game, walking away with only a stuffed banana with dreadlocks, went viral earlier this week, and CollegeHumor was quick with a response.

CollegeHumor launched a campaign to get Facebook users to like its post on the story, saying that if the post gets 26,000 likes, the humor site will buy the stuffed banana from Gribbohm for $2,600, and if it tops 30,000, CollegeHumor will kick in the Xbox Kinect he was originally trying to win.
