Urban Legend or not?

The frisbee was a failed hand greande design as it had incredibly better accuracy and range than classic pienapple designs. However, it was too unstable and couldn't be handled easily. Whamo was formed by ex-designers who left the military and were able to convince brass that the idea be de-classified.

Heard this once and thought it made snese.
Well that explains the company name :O) nmLive Steam

The frisbee was originally the pie plates from the Frisbee pie company, which some inventive kids discovered could be thrown and caught.
