Q:
Who invented the Frisbee?
A:

The Frisbee was invented in 1957 by a Californian UFO enthusiast named Walter Frederick. But he didn’t call it a Frisbee. The Wham-O company bought his idea for a toy saucer, and later named it after a popular pie restaurant in Bridgeport, Connecticut. William Frisbie’s pies were very popular with kids who liked to throw the tins around after they ate the pie! Hence, the Frisbee!
