A week ago, Henry Gribbohm was mocked as a loser for blowing his $2,600 life savings on a carnival game — only to receive a large stuffed banana with dreadlocks as a consolation prize.

“I felt a little bad for that guy,’’ said Streeter Seidell, editor-in-chief of the humor outlet.
The stuffed banana is now a welcome member of the site’s team, which posted a series of photos of the toy’s office interactions. Above: “Getting the girls as well?”
