Once I heard a caller call Ping Pong Circulate 1 & 1/2. He wanted a Ping Pong Circulate followed by an Extend. In my opinion, this is a cute gimmick, but technically incorrect.

Single Ping Pong Circulate [C4]: From a Single 1/4 Tag. As one movement, Extend twice and the new Ends U-Turn Back. Ends in a Single 1/4 Tag. The direction toward which to do the U-Turn Back is undefined, hence it is inappropriate to follow this movement with a Roll.
