    Default Traca Traca

    Here is a pair of the famous 'traca-traca' toys, annually popular in Nicaragua during the months of April and May. You'll here the loud clackety-clack almost where ever you go and where ever there are kids and young people. The pair cost C$8 ($0.38) and make about 10x as much noise.

    Clackers. I hate them. Yesterday my 16 month old neice was in her playpen doing a reasonable job clacking away. A perfect toy for this culture. Cheap, mindless, and noisy.

    We had 'em in about 1972. The grownups who hated them started a rumor that if you clack them too hard they break and release radioactive material.

    The only time one can be annoying is when one has been called down by your parents two or three times.

    The rest of the world has to practice Tolerance. and if one steps over the line of this as do the Radicals, THERE WILL BE A FIGHT
