Now, for all of us who enjoys playing with a freakin' frisbee, here is some light hearted trivia:

How did the Frisbee get its name?

The Frisbee got its name from William Frisbie, who never intended to invent a popular plaything. William Frisbie was the owner of a bakeshop in Connecticut. His pies were sold in metal pans with his last name stamped on them. Eventually, some Yale college students started throwing his pie pans around like a discus, yelling "Frisbie!" as a warning. In the 1950s, when UFOs were a top topic, Walter Morrison made a flying UFO toy out of plastic (his prototype was tin) and got the Wham-O company to sell it under the name "Flyin' Saucer." On a promotional tour in Connecticut, the sales rep was shocked to discover that Yale students were ALREADY playing with a similar toy. The Yale students liked the new, plastic, more aerodynamic, disc better, but the sales rep liked the name of the metal pie tin: Frisbie. In 1959, Wham-O changed the name of its product from "Flyin' Saucer" to "Frisbee."
