    He's not dead.



    He's just stuck on the roof.

    Can't tell you how much of my childhood was spent tossing Frisbees around... R.I.P., Mr. Morrison.

    man i haven't even seen a frisbee, or any other throwing disc for a looooong time. i know i've still got 4-5 around here somewhere (no they're not on the roof. lol), i guess i'll have to dig them out and pry the nephews away from the xbox for awhile this summer.

    No no...that's his soul...he's a Frisbitarian.

    He was the inventor of the perfect toy. I used to play a lot of disc related sports in college...Ultimate, Disc Golf, you name it we loved it.

    Sad, but it sounds like he had a good run. RIP Mr. Morrison. I can't count the number of Frisbees I've thrown and had. Growing up on a beach kind of made it inevitable. Obie likes chasing them and I've bought him a couple. Trouble is he doesn't bring them back but runs off and destroys them.
