Summit Up

Special to the Daily

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column thinking about doing a little butt-bobbing.

We recently received a press release proclaiming the greatness of a new invention, the Butt Bobber:

“The invention of the Butt Bobber offers a creative concept, changing forever a water enthusiasts ability to have fun and enjoyment in the water! There is no other flotation device on the market that has the capabilities of the Butt Bobber.

“Designed to be worn around the waist and upper legs like a pair of shorts, it will support anyone who wishes to float completely upright in a seated position.

“It will prove to be the most effective flotation device for extreme active aquatic games and sports, and is equally valuable for those wishing to relax in an upright and hands-free position without a flotation device around the upper body, shoulders, arms and neck.”

We’re frankly intrigued by any flotation device called the Butt Bobber. It brings to our mind images of people floating down the river, (with very large) rear ends up, even people up-side-down with only their bottoms peaking above the water currents. We’d like to hear about this device a little more, so anyone in possession of the Butt Bobber, please e-mail photos and stories to

In completely unrelated news, we wanted to say good luck to all those Summit County students returning to school tomorrow. It’s a big day, and no offense, and it makes us really, really happy that we aren’t in school anymore.

The time we spent in high school was good and we have some great memories, but they definitely were not the “best years of our lives” as many people like to say.

How did that saying even come about? Can anyone truly say that the awkward, uncomfortable high school years were actually the best years they have ever had?

Those who can say that is true either had an amazing high school or haven’t had much fun since then. Well, high school sure was not the best years of our lives and we wouldn’t relive those days for a million bucks.

We sure don’t miss the homework, cramming for a math test the night before and constantly stressing out. We still get stressed from time to time but at least its not over the SAT.

Yes, we wish all of you luck tomorrow, but sure are glad we’re not in your shoes.

We out, searching online for the best deal on a brand new butt bobber.
