Frisbee

Oh dear. Yet another giant among us has passed. Walter Morrison, who invented the Frisbee, has kicked it. Frisbees are much beloved as sports alternatives by those of us so very be-sissified that we are completely incapable of throwing a ball.


Mrpeenee has a personal interest in the fine Frisbee; I am the only person in universe who has ever been injured by one. I was smacked in the nose by a special Glow-in-the-dark one and the tip of my nose broke off. I’m not making this up, I don’t have to. To this day, I have a little gobbet of cartilage floating under the skin right at the very end of my schnoz, ruining its delicate line and giving me a decided hook to the starboard.


I wonder if it’s too late to sue?

  3. Did you save the tip of your nose?

    Inquiring minds want to know!
