I thought toboggans were all cool too until once at a ski resort I saw some special ed kids all crammed into some weird toboggan-like contraption on a field trip. As the toboggan took off the kids, crammed into the log-like sled with their goggled heads poking out like they were sitting in some wacky 6 seater world war one bi-plane, were all screaming bloody murder, obviously not enjoying their "winter escapade" nearly as much as they were supposed to and certainly not to the extent their teacher's "lesson plan" had foreseen.
Well anyway the inevitable happened and just after the toboggan had gained some steam it tipped over and the kids barreled down the slope plowing a groove into the snow with their ball capped heads... most of them screaming and flailing in winter glee/horror, although one memorable Asian kid smiled strangely in stoic determination to ride out the kamikaze run without so much as a whimper. Finally after about 40 yards the drag caused by their snow-plowing heads and wildly gesticulating arms caused the tobaggan to grind to a merciful halt and the special ed teachers were able to extricate the joyriders from their log ride.
Needless to say, it was very very very difficult not to laugh. I pretended to be coughing.
