Date: Tue, 24 May 1994 10:34:49 EDT From: Larry Horn Subject: King of the Hill My recollection from New York City in the early and mid fifties jibes with Wayne's (and with Randy Roberts's); K of the H involved a mound and a horseless joust/push-off, not a simple pile-on. --Larry ----------------------------Original message---------------------------- Robert Kelly wrote: >kids pile on top of each other = king of the hill --In my neighborood in San Antonio in the late fifties and early sixites, "king of the hill" actually required some sort of mound. The king was able to push everybody off but himself. As a medieval accounts of Fortune's wheel demonstrate, no one can be king of the hill for long.
