I remember browsing channels in the 70's sometime, while I was living in New York City, on a Saturday morning. For several weeks in a row, this game was advertised during children's television shows, and then it stopped (Gee, I wonder why?). I told some co-workers, and they didn't believe me. One actually watched Saturday morning cartoons, in the hope to see it. By that time the commercial was pulled, so he thought that I was lying. The game was called Ball Buster. Yes, that's right. It was for the entire family. In the commercial, the man doing the voice over says, "You try to bust your opponent's balls." I kid you not. I went to several department store's toy department, but no one had the game in stock. Once again, I wonder why?


Up on Cripple Creek, she sends me
If I spring a leak, she mends me
I don't have to speak, she defends me
A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one.
