Bazooka Bubble Gum

by Artist Orla Walsh


Acrylic Painting 10 x 12 inches

Bazooka Joe was made in Ballincolig Co. Cork!! I could not believe that when I discovered that.  The taste disappeared after about a minute and the chewing made my jaws ache. Then I would lick my arm and stick the cartoon to it and make a tattoo but we called them transfers back then.

  1. Joe is 60 years old
  2. There is nothing wrong with his right eye. He just wares an eye patch to... be "more interesting".
  3. I thought that this explanation was much more interesting… Bazooka Joseph lost sight in his left eye after being tragically kicked in the head by the Fruit Stripe zebra, who was at the time dying of rabies, and has worn an eyepatch ever since.
  4. To get the flavour of the Gum, which they just call original: Add 10 ml Irish Cream Liqueur, 10 ml Banana Liqueur, 10 ml Blue Curacao and you have it!.
