Default disc golf on the simpsons

Hey I'm watching the Simpsons and they're having a town hall meeting about what sport the kids should play now that pee wee football has been deemed too dangerous and the rich Texan yells out "Frisbee golf". That's it. I see references to DG all the time and I always wanna post about em but this is the first time I have. Maybe I'll do it more often.

See? To the rest of the non-discing public, it'll always be "frolf".

There is less and less non-discing public every day.

Only if the birth rate slows down---10,800 per day in the US. I doubt that many start playing dg for the first time every day.

While I prefer "disc golf," I don't have a problem with "Frisbee golf."
However, "frolf" just sounds stupid... IMHO.

Plus whenever I hear non-players refer to it, it's always Frisbee golf... I've only seen/heard the term "frolf" on the interwebz.


I hope they continue the story line with Mr. Burns' decision to enter the growing market with product of his own.... only to have him continuously tweak various molds and call them the same name.

No.


He said "Frisbee Golf". He did not say the contracted abomination, "frolf"

I like how Ultimate is not called Disc Rugbee or Disc Football or anything like that...

I wish Disc Golf was called something like that... maybe, Hurl or whatever... honestly, I only gave it a second to come up with that so...

I've never heard/seen "Frolf" in real life either; but my first introduction to the sport was in the early 80s at a water park in K.C., MO where they had a course and they called it a "Folf" course, specifically: "Par None Folf"
