I wasn't expecting all the hoop-la

Richard Knerr, the man behind the Hula Hoop and the Frisbee, is dead.

It's a sad day. You know...for kids.

And I can think of no better way to mark it than watching this. Cinematic genius from start to finish. As one of the commenters on YouTube says - it's so perfect it makes you want to cry.

Alas! No Moses to stop the clock there. Sad day indeed.

Hula Hoop, Frisbee AND the SuperBall. God how I loved the SuperBall. No better toy than that to piss off one's mother.
