“Boomerangs are just frisbees for lonely people”

"Boomerangs are just frisbees for lonely people” is a saying that has been printed on many images. Both boomerangs and frisbees are thrown, but a boomerang can be returned without the help of another person.

“Boomerangs are just frisbees for lonely people” was posted on Twitter on April 10, 2009.


Wikipedia: Boomerang
A boomerang is a tool, typically constructed as a flat airfoil that, when thrown, is designed to spin about an axis perpendicular to the direction of its flight. A returning boomerang is designed to return to the thrower. It is well known as a weapon used by Indigenous Australians for hunting.

Wikipedia: Frisbee
A frisbee (also called a flying disc or simply a disc) is a gliding toy or sporting item that is generally plastic and roughly 20 to 25 centimetres (8 to 10 in) in diameter with a lip, used recreationally and competitively for throwing and catching, for example, in flying disc games. The shape of the disc, an airfoil in cross-section, allows it to fly by generating lift as it moves through the air while spinning.
