Super slammer

If you want to hold onto your pogs and marbles, just don't bring them to class! It's not that difficult, kids, come on!

What am I going to do with all these damn pogs? It's not my fault my room's a mess.

What are pogs? Am I horribly uncool for not knowing this, or is this a Korean thing?

pogs are the cardboard bit on the inside of a milk bottle cap that kids used to throw around and try to flip over by banging their pog on someone else's. eventually a company caught on, manufactured these things in north america and there was a crazy pog phase in the mid 90's....colourful pogs with pictures of cartoon characters...where people were paying hundreds of dollars for single 'collectors pogs' until it crashed and nobody wanted them anymore...

in korea, it's called dakji and they use rubbery plastic japanimation characters instead...and it's still really big!

It was 1996 and I was in the sixth grade. I had a rockin' pog collection including a metal slammer and a bunch of really cool monster pogs, plus some cheap ones I got free from circuit city. I'd only ever play with the cheap commercial ones, obviously, and later taped all the nice ones onto an old chair back. I still have my pog collection to this day, stored in a Christmas container that once held soap.

Ah, I guess the problem is that in 1996 I was graduating from college. :)

Ohh, I wasn't in the sixth grade in '96.. I was in the eighth grade! That makes all the difference! :) Pog's were '94.
