I'm shocked. Shocked!

...to learn that Bazooka Joe is still around. Seriously, people actually still buy that stuff?

I dunno, I think it's very sad. As a kid, stuff like Hostess products and Bazooka Joe strips were impossibly glamourous little nuggets of Americana, and I think the world is a little poorer for their passing.

Bazooka Joe was the most frustrating shit ever. You bought your 5 cent piece of gum and unwrapped it to find it had a sweet comic, only to find it was the most useless, pointless, and boring comic strip ever created. Never funny. Never interesting. For some reason, it seems I hate Bazooka Joe. :lol:

Hope you guys learned from that Hostess business- time to start stockpiling before they go for $300 a case.

It prospered during the economic bubble.

Whoever was in charge should get chewed out.
