I have google “Rolly Backpacks” to discover that even when you google “Rolly Backpacks are awesome” all you get are hate messages! It seems as though the world hates them! Well you know what? I like them. They save your back from being sore, you can lean on the handle, you can have “kick the backpack” wars with friends….
Look at this video….
and read this facebook group’s letter….
Letters to the Editor, March 29, 2005.
There is an element of BYU life that fills my soul with rage. Every time it presents itself before my eyes, find that I loathe it with an unquenchable fiery passion. This bane of my existence, this blight on my otherwise happy horizons, is the rolly backpack. There is something about that incessant click-click-click of the wheels over pavement, leisurely blocking my way to class, which makes me want to throw the offending object into a bottomless pit full of hungry, plastic-eating dinosaurs. From 1999 to 2000, the University of Michigan performed a study on backpack injuries in the United States, and do you know what they found? More than twice the number of children injured by carrying ordinary backpacks was actually hurt by tripping over a rolling backpack!
Folks, you’re not doing anyone any favors with your wheel-covered boxes of doom. So you’ve got a bad back, that’s rough, but there are alternatives to the rolly backpack. Get a locker on campus. Drop any classes requiring texts weighing more than three pounds. Raise an orphaned pack mule to carry your load. But please, please remove this dark plague from our shining campus. Unite against the rolly backpack!
Lighting it on fire! Listen, I love lighting things on fire, explosions, experiments, WRITING POETRY, etc but when there are so many youtube videos and facebook groups showing hate, then I need to make up for it ^_^.
ODE TO THE ROLLY BACKPACK
(to Row Row Row your Boat)
Roll, Roll, roll your bag
Loudly down the hall,
People kick it from behind,
You’ll try not to fall.
Roll, Roll, Roll your bag
and sing a Hogwarts song!
Catching the bag in the door
Isn’t a large price at all
(normal voice) BECAUSE THEY’RE AWESOME!!!!!!
Rolly back packs are worth it, I think. If you need something to do, google them and witness my discovery. Please also read the Urban Dictionary definition of a “Rolley Bagger”
