That’s not the case everywhere. When my kids played the arcade at Universal Studios, it was clear that after a certain number of times trying, the guy running the game would actually throw the game in order to give the kid a prize, but he did it in a very clever way so it was not obvious. My son still has his giant Simpsons doughnut plushie he won that day.
Chocolate is a terrible choice for an arcade prize. It will melt in the sun.
@Valka: Some games are winnable. I won a stuffed dog one year, and my cousin won me a dog and a snake (the snake was made of fun fur).
But the real question is: What were you wearing when you won?
Maybe in order to win a prize, you have to wear odd clothing:
Panel 1 guy has studded pants and a vest over no shirt, with his pants pulled up to his belly button.
Panel 4 guy has shorts with strange designs on them and bright yellow shoes.
I remember when women’s mud-wrestling used to be a thing.
Lynn Johnston’s notes yesterday said the roller coaster was based on the Pacific National Exhibition wooden roller coaster which is a permanent roller coaster on the exhibition grounds still in existence since 1958.
That roller coaster is listed on-line as:
Ride Type: Extreme
Minimum Rider Height: 48" & Taller
it’s a test not only for Elly’s temper but Elly’s laundry skills. My guess is this is the last time Lizzie will wear that shirt. Of course, since she apparently wears nothing but purple, she probably has plenty of purple shirts to replace it.
Once you smell poodle, you never go back.
But it’s her first time with Puddles.
summerdog86 said, “A coaster that size, would never appear, let alone be able to be set up, in a temporary carnival.”
summerdog86 appears to be correct judging from Lynn Johnston’s own notes. The roller coaster in the comic strip is based on the Pacific National Exhibition wooden roller coaster in Vancouver which is not temporary, but stays intact year round.
Sometimes people who live in Canada, just assume they know all about the rest of the country.
