Best of Boston

1979 Best Practical Joke

Little Jack Horner’s Joke Shop

Either the squirting ketchup bottle or the disappearing ink from Little Jack Horner’s Joke Shop, 169 Tremont St., Boston. The ketchup shoots out red string and is amusing; the ink stains for about fifteen minutes, then disappears, and is anxiety-provoking. Warning: The victim may forgive the ketchup joke, but will probably take revenge for the ink.
