On March 5, 1963, the patent was granted to Mr. Arthur “Spud” Melin for the Hula Hoop, a toy which he and his partner, Mr. Richard Knerr had ‘invented’ in 1958. It was derived from a piece of exercise equipment popular in Australia.
Rhinos do not own exercise equipment, but our enjoyment of Hula Hoops is not dimmed. We can appreciate them just the same.
What else is an imagination for?
