Get the hang of what?  Spelling words that are in the headline of the article you just linked to?

So...uh...subby did you read the article?  

"On this day in 1963, the Hula-Hoop, a hip-swiveling toy that became a huge fad across America when it was first marketed by Wham-O in 1958, is patented. "

It was five years old when it was born?   I guess you couldn't get the hang of reading either.

I never lost weight faster and kept it off longer than I have since I started hula hooping (been about 6 or 7 years now).

It's super low impact and tons of fun. :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HULA HOOP!  Here's to 50 more years of hip thrusting fun!

We have someone at wok I call hooper. She always has one or more and can do the waist and both arms in different directions at the same time. Pretty talented gal.

That is so unfair.  Our secretary at wok could have doubled for Linda Blair in The Exorcist sans make up.

that is very cool. my niece in college uses a rather heavy hula hoop to keep trim.

It's amazing.  The Hooters we used to go to for trivia night closed years ago, but you say "hula hoop" and I still think of the waitress there who kneeled and stood up while hula hooping.

Same,

I'll be in my bunk.

My favorite one is the cute girl hooping at the little redneck music festival while some cover band plays in the background.
 
2013-03-05 08:39:31 PM
I could never get the skinny plastic ones to work, though the sturdy ones like these

 www.circusmafia.com

are a whole lot of fun to work out with.
 
2013-03-05 08:53:05 PM
DarkJohnson is correct: article/headline is misleading, 'cause the big "fad year" was 1958. Maybe it took until 1963 for Wham-O to get patent approval (for what, I wonder?), but History Channel is providing an unfortunate factoid.

1958 = Hula Hoop, Davy Crockett (Disney) coonskin hats, recession, etc.

/yes, I remember

So, one question - did Alvin ever get his hula hoop?

/maybe not - he was a little flat
