Inventor of Frisbee and Hula Hoop gone to the great toy store in the sky.

So this over at

Arthur “Spud” Melin, co-founder of the toy company that introduced the world to the Frisbee, Hula Hoop and other faddish gems of American pop culture, has died. He was 77 and had Alzheimer’s disease.

I was surprised to learn he was still around in the first place. Still, he leaves behind one hell of a legacy on the roofs of houses everywhere. Which is where my Frisbees usually ended up.

  1. It needs much more info on the inventor and the company where it was placed and shyt.

  2. Again I say, reviving 4 year old threads should be illegal and punishable by castration.  And btw, he’s actually agnostic.

  3. I’m pretty sure that Les is actually a full-fledged atheist (although agnosticism and atheism just represent different degrees on the same continuum). I’ll let him comment if I am incorrect in stating this.

  4. I’m neither Jewish in race or religion, though I suspect the moron who made the comment meant it more to be an insult than a literal statement.

    MoP, I don’t have a problem with old threads being revived, but I wouldn’t call moron-boy’s comment as reviving the thread. Just another drive-by idiot with too much time on his hands.
