Gary Dahl, R. I. P.

Gary Dahl, Inventor of the Pet Rock, Dies at 78: It was a craze to rival the Hula-Hoop, and even less explicable. For a mere three dollars and 95 cents, a consumer could buy ... a rock — a plain, ordinary, egg-shaped rock of the kind one could dig up in almost any backyard.

Another idea stolen from me. I had a pet rock years before this clown came along.
