Silly Sunday: Wacky Packages

Fright Guard
When I was a kid, we dashed to the candy store, paid our nickels, and got packs of Wacky Packages. I had a thick stack of stickers after collecting for awhile, but somehow they've disappeared over the years. I wish I still had them because these vintage cards are going for several dollars a piece on Ebay. Some for a several lot of dollars.

It's funny to reflect on the goofy topics that appeal to kids. At my ten year high school reunion, my grade school classmates and I reminisced about how easy it was to make our sixth grade selves laugh. All we had to do was whisper, "Underwear," and everyone within hearing distance would laugh so hard they'd have to cross legs to keep from peeing.

Why don't these things make us laugh anymore? Adults take life too seriously. 
Does anyone else remember these?

Sorry I don't remember these. I didn't have much of a childhood though so that's probably why.

Have a terrific Silly Sunday. :)

LOL I love your little stories, although being in UK I don't know these, we had similar though.

Have a fantasmagorical Sunday :-)

I do remember some of those. It is amazing what makes kids laugh. If we could all just keep laughing all through life at the mere mention of underwear what a happier world we would all live in!

I don't remember those, but I do remember Garbage Pail Kids trading cards. Those always cracked us up with their gross humor!

Bless you! Just last week I thought of these and could not remember what they were called. I loved them and thought every single one was funnier than the one before. As for the onset of mad giggles at our house, it's bodily functions every time. Just when I think I am grown up, someone does something that starts the giggling and it turns out I'm just immature enough. Wonderful thoughts!
