Hmm that's odd. This sounds more advanced than the standard door knob licker.

A Bronson garage-door-spring-2x4-with-rusty-nails thing that snaps down and slaps them in the temple.

A friend just got the Ring doorbell camera, and she posts videos of foxes, chickens, and other assorted wildlife walking by. I was gonna go over and make faces in it, but nowadays, you just wind up looking like a deviant...

Well, I guess I know now what a doorbell licker is...  and there is no hope for humanity.  None. At. All.

Makes me think of the magazine adds when I was young.  They would have "prank" stuff for kids.  One was a box with a button on it.  When you pressed the button, the needle in the button wouldn't move with the button.

Just a thought.

I'm sure somehow this shananigance is related to drug use.

The Johnson Smith catalog?

We bought everything from it.

(i told the story of the 11' hot-air balloon.  and'll do it again if i have to)

I don't know the button-box.

We never bought that one.

The Remote Control Surprise Ghost!...

was a white balloon with a garbage bag and some fishing string.

You blew up the balloon,  drew a scary face on it, tied it to the garbage bag with the fishing line tied to it,  threw it over a tree branch,  and when everyone walked by,  you pulled the string!

Remote Control!

We scared our friends!

HaHa!

Totally worth the 99¢.

They were scared ****less.

We didn't have the internet.

We blew the centrifugal clutch out of the mini-bike, before school was even out for the summer.

So....

you had to go to the store and find a magazine.  With some ads in the back.  And hoped you picked a good one.

And write them a letter for a catalog.

In six-to-eight weeks you'd get a catalog.

Like, the blue mimeographed ones.  Stapled together.

Pick out your clutch-part,  send in a check,....

In six-to-eight weeks you'd get your clutch.

By then, summer was over.

You never even got to ride your mini-bike.

When the clutch blew out,  you could sometimes find the two pieces and the springs and the shell.

you could never find the snap-ring that held it in place.

The snap-ring  was 4¢ at Busy Bee.  They had them.

They might even have the springs.

Hardware stores had mini-bike parts.

They were really tractor / farm parts, but that's where mini-bikes ccame from.

When the mini-bike blew a clutch...

you wanted to be the guy on the back.  Not the guy in the front.

Because it would blow the the two pieces and the springs into your leg.
