Throwback Thursday: “Hitchhikers!”

This popped up on Twitter the other day.  Behold one of the biggest pains-in-the-ass of my childhood.

As you can see from my response, we called these “hitchhikers” on my native Long Island.  A lot of people from the northeast chimed in that they likewise remember the appellation.

People elsewhere know them as “travelers,” “stickers,” “bindies” and (drum roll please) “Satan’s Spurs.”  That last one is truly inspired.
