    How many of you can still remember when you could take $0.05 and run down to your local neighborhood grocery store to purchase 5 pieces of gum? Everyone used to love the jokes that were printed on the wrapper. This is one of my favorites:

    When is a door NOT a door?

    Do you have a favorite joke that you'd like to share.

      Those were the days...Back then our parents weren't scared to death to let us play outside.

        This is so true ... as long as I got home before sundown!

      Are you trying to make us reveal our age?  I just realized that it was spelled "Dubble", and always thought I should be able to blow two bubbles at a time.
      Oh, also (when it's ajar).

          and... How do you get into a building that has NO windows or doors? You run around it until you are ALL IN....

        So true ... I am extremely happy to have lived as long as I have and enjoyed so many things. Yes, there were hard times as well but things were cheaper and of better quality.

      I would love to tell you the joke about the roof ... but it would probably be over your head.

        or the joke about the well, but it's a deep subject.

        This reminds me of a roof joke -though probably not Dubble Bubble.

        A man and his dog walk into a bar and the man says," I would like a drink, but don't have any money. Will you give me a beer if I can prove my dog can talk?"
        "Sure," says the bartender.
        So the man asks his dog a question: "What is the cover on the top of a house called?"
        "Roof, roof, roof,' says the dog.
        The bartender shakes his head.
        "Wait," says the man, "I'll ask another question."
        He asks,"How does sandpaper feel?"
        "Ruff, ruff, ruff," says the dog.
        "Get outta here!", says the bartender.
        "Wait a minute", says the man, " give me one more try.
        He asks the dog,"Who was the best baseball player of all time?"
        "Ruth, ruth, ruth'" says the dog.--- and the bartender kicks the man and his dog out.
        They are sitting on the curb and the dog asks the man,"Should I have said DiMaggio?"

        I know, it's an old joke.

          This reminds me of a joke that also wasn't on the bubble gum wrapper.
          A man goes to an acting audition.  "What can you do? the producer asked him.
          "I imitate birds," he answered.
          "Are you kidding?" sneered the producer.  "People like you are a dime a dozen."
          "Well, I guess that's that," answered the aspiring actor.  He spread his arms and flew out the window.

      Oh I remember the gum but I can't remember the jokes. There was another gum that had a comic strip inside the wrapper but can't remember the name of that gum.And did the gum get smaller, or did our mouths get bigger?

      You can still get "individual" Dubble Bubble if you know where to look. The tobacco shop I frequented before I quit using smokeless tobacco had big jars of Bazooka and Dubble Bubble on the counter so I'd always grab a couple for my kids. They prefer Bazooka, apparently Dubble Bubble "loses its flavor too fast," haha.

      The comics on "Dubble Bubble" wrappers were simply copying Bazooka's trademark "Bazooka Joe" strips (which are still included with each piece of Bazooka, at least the last time I checked.) ...as much as I love comics, neither of them were never particularly funny....haha

      I know when I was a kid there was always some sort of "special offer" in the lower right hand corner of each Bazooka Joe comic, where you could save up a certain # of comics and send them in for some cheap piece of junk prize.

      What did the stamp say to the letter?

      Stick with me and we'll go places! (I know ... but it was funny way back then!)

      Bazooka Joe was the funny looking guy in a turtle neck I was thinking of in the comic strip. Thanks.

      Jacqueline, keep up the funnies, you crack me up. tee hee

      Why did the man throw the clock out the window?

      Because he wanted to see time fly!
