Happy 51st birthday to the Frisbee!
Watch out, onlookers, what those naked athletes are throwing around was produced exactly 51 years ago today!
After all, Ultimate Frisbee wouldn’t be ultimate, heck, it just plain wouldn’t be without the plate-shaped plaything. The Frisbee was produced today way back when by Wham-O, inspired by the shape of a popcorn tin lid and using the name of a pie manufacturer (I wonder what Frisbee pie tasted like…)
Today, the Frisbee is best known for being chewed and slobbered on by hyperactive dogs, being thrown around on vacation, or competitively used in the game, Ultimate Frisbee (traditionally played by serious teams in the nude).
Thanks for all the good times, Wham-O.
