after a while, pogs caught on in mainstream US culture, so companies sold the discs minus the drink and bottle. the mass produced pogs were decorated with lil pictures.
pogs are utilized in a game in which they are stacked up in lil piles. the players throw heavy, thick discs of plastic or metal (about the diameter of the pogs) at them. when the pogs settle after being bashed, whichever ones land face up are kept by the thrower of the slammer. the one with the most pogs wins.
pogs are no longer popular. like furby they were simply a fad that died out.

"Did you see that AAFES in Bagram?", "Yes, it was filled with fat, ugly pogs."
"Why would any man be a pog when he could become an actual soldier, like a rough and tumble, bad ass infantryman?"
However, when asked, most people will go "Huh?" and walk away. I thought I was the only person who remembered pogs...
Idiot 1- "Huh?" (walks away)
