I bought a box of Bazooka Joe bubble gum today and I am very, very, very happy to report that although they have revamped Bazooka Joe's group of friends to be a bit more modern it hasn't lost a few key elements. Namely? It still has comics with little fortunes on them. Beyond that the fortunes are still borderline insane (example- "It's a dog-eat-dog world, unless you find something better to eat"...what?) and the comics very rarely have anything approaching a real punchline. It is great. If I had the time I would totally film a documentary about the person who writes and draws these comics. It essentially follows one formula-
Frame 1: Somebody asks Bazooka Joe (how old is he? why does he have an eyepatch?) some random question no person would ever ask another person and Bazooka Joe answers vaguely.
Frame 2: Closeup on person who asked the question and they are all like "What could he possibly mean?" or "Are you talking about your dog?"
Frame 3: The dog is saying something almost wholly unrelated to what is going on in frames 1 and 2. Either that or a closeup of Bazooka Joe saying something really insanely obvious.
I want to wallpaper my new office with Bazooka Joe comics. In no way am I kidding about that.
BLOGS! Today we only have 1. But it is from Leo so it is worth at least two. His specialty is making cheaper versions of things that already exist so you can have finer luxuries such as couches or Halloween when you are broke. Today he tackles "sauce."
