    Would've forgotten about those.

    Anybody else remember when these got banned in school? At least around me. I guess because they were metal, and some kid got his wrist cut slapping them on because the plastic wore away from the side. Probably an urban legend but you know how kids are. It just made them cooler - prohibited and potentially dangerous!

    I remember them. But yo, what about the Fabulous Rougeau Brothers? I thought the militant French Canadian bit was hilarious. But on the real, there never will be a greater heel than The Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase. Remember that shit when he told the kid he'd give him $500 if he could bounce a ball 50 times, then kicked the ball away from the kid on the 49th bounce? CLASSIC!

    Props to Boobby Heenan for providing me with a quote I have repurposed a bazillion times in my life: "It'll take a great man to beat Tito Santana...but it won't take him long."

    Ted DiBiase's brother was my high school counselor. Well, half-brother but still..

    It was a public television game show with Greg Lee and Lynn Thigpen. The final round involved a kid being asked to locate several obscure countries in under a couple of minutes with light poles on a giant world map. If s/he won, they would go to space camp or something similar

    Hahha.

    If you got ouuta hand as a kid another adult could smack you.

  • hey guys, great thread.

    I used to dive off my bed onto piles of pillows/blankets while wearing these things, I'm lucky I didn't break my neck

  • anyone remember the "no fitty" break yo neck game?

    if you looked at someone else's hand with a circle shape they get to call "no fitty" and they got to rub the skin off of your neck.

    shit sucked, but in junior high it was the game that everyone had no choice but to play.

    Back in high school my group of friends would 'crown' each other whenever somebody said something corny/stupid. Getting 'crowned' just meant getting rapped on the head with the knuckles. Depending on the day and the current standing of the transgressor, this ranged from a friendly admonishment to a brutal show of force.

    Of note to SoulStrut rap fans may be that a key progenitor of this game was up-and-coming ATL rapper Willie the Kid of Aphiliates/Gangsta Grillz fame.

    No doubt! I got his tape. I can send you a copy w/ your records (probably in early '08) in case you dont have it yet.

    But man, I know we really killed the Supersoaker shit. I mean, I still have distinct memories of blasting unsuspecting people with the HUUUUGE ones. Too funny.

    Haha. Yeah, I was hoping you'd see this! Didn't Amanda knock some dude off his bike with one of those? All the coffee shops with outdoor seating were prime targets. People in Mall/Movie parking lots, runners, anybody wearing leather. I miss those days.

    Going to florists to buy big clay flower pots for the sole purpose of smashing them on the ground.

    Remember when you hit that lady in the convertible with a head of lettuce? Wait, that was only a couple years ago.

    Huh. We did play a schoolwide version of that game in seventh grade, but we had slightly different rules:

    1. The punishment was a punch on the arm/shoulder a la Punch Buggy (remember that?)

    2. The thumb-and-forefinger circle had to be held below the waist--it was way too easy to just hold it up in front of somebody's face and get in a free punch

    3. If you managed to stick your finger into the thumb-and-forefinger circle (AYO!), then you got to give the other person three punches

    That game got way out of control. We would be in science class fucking with Bunsen burners and chemical reactions and whatnot, and fools would be beating the hell out of each other.
