"Every once in a while, somebody with an engineering degree tries to 'remake' skateboarding and we end up with another action sports novelty item."

Mister Markman has proven himself chock full of gems relating to our childhood today, first with the heads-up regarding what's undoubtedly one of the most brilliant ad spots ever created, and now with a bit on the PUMGO, which eather sounds like a brand of knockoff soccer-clothing produced in Brazilian sweatshops or some sort of absurdist porn series. Maybe both. In actuality, it's a skateboard powered by the rider's back and forth motion. In an even more harsh actuality, even the Christian Science Monitor seems to think it's lame. Somewhere, a geek weeps.
