  2. I thought I had seen (or owned!) most of that Wham-O stuff, but like Joe, don't remember this. I can almost hear Beavis saying "heh-heh - poke a bone"

  3. There are just so many things wrong with this on so many levels...

  4. Fact: This is the worst name for a product ever created... except maybe Aydes candy and 666 Cough Syrup (I'm not making these up).

    Fact: That boy has the grooviest shirt I've ever seen. I want that.

    Fact: Poking a bone is a fun skill (as the package states)... but it is not, I repeat NOT a game.

  5. Just to make matters slightly worse, why is that thing on the end a red fish?

    But that really is a REALLY groovy shirt.

  6. Hmmm. The red fish thing is an enigma. I'm afraid I can't even come up with a flimsy lie that would sound believable.

  8. Not to be confused with the girl's version of this game, Jam-A-Clam.

    I'm sorry. I'll show myself out...

  9. Keith, your mother probably sheltered you from this obscene toy. ;-)

    FilmFather - Hilarious.I was trying to think of a good one earlier, and the best I could come up with was "Smack-A-Crack" which just sounds... wrong.
