Flashback to the 80s...

Does anyone remember this thing?

The Nerf Boomerang.  I woke up this morning thinking about this thing...It crosses my mind every now and again, and when I send it away, a month or so later, it's back.  Damn thing...

Did anyone else extract a HUGE amount of pleasure from biting this thing?  No?  Just me?  God...I always wanted to just take a big bite out of was the perfect density and texture and...unh.  It still makes my mouth water.

But you're reading the blog of the kid who used to get in trouble for trying to eat sponges.  

Maybe you didn't know that...please stay.

But seriously...did anyone ever get this thing to actually work?  I think ours was designed to get stuck in trees and on roofs and not to come back.

The television commercials were all lies. I recall never being able to get it to work as a kid.

Don't remember biting it though. I wasn't much of a biter until I got to adulthood. ;-)

LOL That's dirty. See...a kid I knew who had one could make it work every time...but he was 5 years or so older than me, so I attributed it to age, then.
