First off I apologize for probably making a possible duplicate thread but I don’t really want to necro a past one…actually, perhaps a thread like this can be sticky’d since I’m sure people will be adding to it on their yoyo adventures.
Ok, so about the thread. Pretty much post/share funny things non yoyoers (or the general public as I like to refer them as) say. Hoping to see some unique/funny ones besides ‘walk the dog.’
So earlier I was messing with my modded Flying Panda and trying to land on the string. A kid watches me as I miss a catch and the yoyo takes off behind me. He then asks me “Hey, why don’t you just tie your string on that thing?” I go to make a second attempt and land it and do a couple of barrel rolls/orbits and binded. He was shocked and I explained to him that it was an offstring yoyo, meant for being flung up and catching it on the string.
I heard other comments referring to the 4A yoyo such as “Ooh, Chinese yoyo!” and “Is that even a yoyo?”
I just love how this one kid I constantly run into at my niece’s softball games just comes up with random names of tricks. He comes up and asks me if I learned anything new this past week (he saw me last weekend and the weekend before). I go and show him “Gondola” when he says “Ooh…Ooh…CARGO BOAT!” (Probably referring to a crane when they load cargo ships). Doing the same trick, my younger niece says “That’s like that one ride at Great America!” (Referring to those cable gondola things at my local amusement park).
And the one that wins the prize: my youngest niece comes running out of my room when she was over, holding my FHZ Pulse and excitedly saying “Wo-wo! Wo-wo!” (Yup, that’s how she says 'yo-yo!)
