    Before magazine quizzes, people chewed their gum in ignorant bliss.

    I wonder if the magazine mentions a world record for biggest bubble blown?

    Please. Back in the day, I bought baseball cards solely for the rock-like gum.

    More importantly, does it lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?

    Hobbes doesn’t look like he is being sarcastic! Or is he just plain hopeless?

    Hobbes, you better take this ‘Are you getting enough out of your magazine quizzes?’ quiz.

    Does it have the consistency of melted rubber? Then it’s probably already been chewed by your friend Hobbes.

    If you want to waste 15 – 20 minutes in sticky anger, chew gum with dentures!

    And now we have the internet to tell us what to think. With magazines, you used to have to wait a whole week or month to get your misinformation. Now you can get it instantly and in surround sound.

    Before magazine quizzes there were IQ and common sense. Since then there is no way to prove either.

    Oh, oh… Calvin is already becoming ‘entitled’ at his early age. Hobbes needs to step in with a reality check.

    There’s something especially fascinating about when popular culture satirizes something that doesn’t exist anymore, or at least isn’t big the way it was. Like the old song “Doin’ the Raccoon”, a catchy ditty from the 1920s about how everybody was wearing raccoon coats.

    The Chewing magazine riffs may be Waterson satirizing smoking aficionado magazines supported by the tobacco industry along with a few pokes at big tobacco’s marketing to kids.

    So here’s a funny story involving lists: Back in my younger years, I was a skateboarding aficionado, and semi-regularly bought magazines related to such. One such magazine had a section showing responses to a reader poll, and at the bottom of a list of various demographics was the following response:


    “I’m a hermaphrodite and I like to sk8”


    So now, decades later, whenever I’m putting together some sort of list, I have to resist the urge to make the final choice “I’m a hermaphrodite and I like to sk8”.

    The quiz Calvin took 70 years later was very similar. “How hard is your - at the beginning”. He had to pick “C”.

    Today the “clickbait” would be “10 different ways your gum is affecting your sex life”. :)

    Good point Hobbes. To think how much dumber we could have been all these years… Oh! The things we’ve missed out on. It just astounds the mind.

    Bazooka bubble gum was always rock hard but you had to buy it if only for the superior bubbles it could produce and for the Bazooka Joe comics.

    I’ve been chewing the same gum back to high school. I guess I’m just fine with my gun.
