Was just browsing around and came upon this recall of a hammock:

You get what you paid for.... Maybe the maker should replace the rod with heavy steel pipe?

Ouch. I don't think I ever tried one of those.

Nothing to do with this, but for some reason it brought up the memory....

I once had a canvas hammock try pretending it was a Hennessy right in the middle of my nap.

All the sudden my rear was on the ground, having slipped through the new horizontal opening in the floor of the hammock. (My feet and head were still in the hammock)

My family thought it was hilarious.

Had a canvas sling chair do the same thing some years later.

Another version/way for " Cotton Kills".....Do bet that was funny.... Is it the origins of "Dropkick"?

Actually the nickname Dropkick came from the rugby playing days (prop).
One day a bunch of us were at the movies and I offered to dropkick a noisy kid.
The name stuck.
(It was actually much funnier than it sounds.)
