I’ll take two please…

Posted by: Dave In: Weird

Hey Larry, can you loan me fifty cents? I want to buy a pasty white kid. They’re on sale today. Thanks!

From USA Today

A toddler who went fishing for a stuffed cartoon character in a vending machine wound up sharing space with the toy inside the game’s plastic cubicle.

Three-year-old Robert Moore tried to scoop out a stuffed replica of SpongeBob SquarePants with the vending machine’s plastic crane on Saturday, but had no luck on his first attempt.

While his grandmother, Fredricka Bierdemann, turned her back to get another dollar for a second try, Robert took off his coat and squeezed through an opening in the machine. He landed in the stuffed animal cube.

I would have used the little crane-arm to fish him out. I think if you caught an ear or a nose, you could pull him out easily.

As seen on BoingBoing.
