Frisbee

Wally might be part dog. What is it about man’s best friend that loves to run and retrieve stuff anyway?

Frisbee is one of those words like Kleenex where a brand name has become the recognized word. Nobody says flying disk or facial tissue. Flying disks have been thrown by people for centuries, in the form of cake pans, lids or any disk shaped objects. What we know as the plastic flying disks of today got their start as the “Flying-Saucer” invented by Fred Morrison in 1948. The idea didn’t really take off though until another model by Morrison came out in 1955 called the “Pluto Platter”. It was bought by Wham-O (gotta love that toy company’s name) and then marketed and sold as the “Frisbee” (which was most likely a play on the spelling of Frisbie from the Frisbie Pie Company, whose pie tins made good flying disks themselves).

Happy Feet

Yup, it got released today. Man, it’s been over a year since I first mentioned the film. They sure take a long time with animated films. I’m glad I just do comics, they take me long enough to get out. Anyway, Happy Feet looks really good, let’s all go see it. :)

    On the kleenex thing, I disagree. Myself and everyone I know just says “tissues”, is it really necessary to specify “facial”?

    Maybe it’s an australian thing…

  • Leonardo

    2nd comment yeah!
    funny stripe πŸ˜› keep going πŸ˜€

  • Ishmael

    Now Wally must be part dog πŸ˜€

  • Veranda

    I agree with Tim, nobody I know says Kleenex, we say facial tissue… maybe it is an australian thing… or maybe I’m just a little strange. Love osbourne’s face in the 2nd and 3rd panel:)

  • purple people eater

    I wonder if Wally can play dead?
    Orca fact
    Some Orcas Beach themselfs to scare animals into the water where hungry Orcas are waiting to eat them. Sad but true.

  • OrAnGe JuIcE

    I just got back from Dallas, Texas from my sister’s soccer tournament and we had watched Happy Feet on Friday at the Imax. Ramone (The adeline with the buzz cut) is just so funny. After the movie, I went to Build-a-bear workshop to buy the plushie. That’s right! For a limited time only they have mini Ramone, Lovelace, and baby Gloria plushies coming in sets of three. They also have bigger ones of Baby Mumble, the storybook, and the soundtrack. (Most of the soundtrack features the penguins singing their “heart songs”, Gloria singing Boogiewonderland, etc.)

    I don’t know… But I think it might just be that they like having their master happy! o-0 *Shrugs*

  • Amy

    I couldn’t understand some parts of this article Frisbee, but I guess I just need to check some more resources regarding this, because it sounds interesting.
