The Extruded Plastic Dingus

Van was obsessed with hula-hoops all weekend. This picture of Aaron with Captain Jack Sparrow and his tools in the background made me giggle, and I know it will set her off on another tirade.

Questions: What if you tire before it's done? Does it have rules? Can more than one play? What makes you think it's a game? Is it a game? Will it break? It better break eventually! Is there an object? What if you tire before it's done? Does it come with batteries? We could charge extra for them. Is it safe for toddlers? How can you tell when you're finished? How do you make it stop? Is that a boy's model? Can a parent assemble it? Is there a larger model for the obese? What if you tire before it's done? What the hell is it?

Answer: It's the The Extruded Plastic Dingus. You know, for kids!

Those damn hula hoops!!!! What the hell do grown 'people' need with those things. And WHY do they seem to think that a jostling, crowded festival is exactly the sort of place to engage in that sort of activity?? Can't they just use what the good Lord gave them and DANCE? What a useless piece of machinery to cart around and take up space! They know it doesn't make them look cool, don't they? DON'T THEY?? Ref, can we have a special card for dance-pit fouls or infringing-on-my-personal-space fouls? Stupid pirates, too, though at least that weirdo was funny to look at. FYI, captain "tractor" jack, a North Saskatchewan pirate is only cool in an Arrogant Worms song - and that's a stretch. You might want to think about that before you invest in more bandanas and eyeliner.
