The History of Wacky Packages by Jessica

Wacky packages are a Topps product that came out in 1973 with the first modern set. There are just a bizarre set of  cards that are parodies of famous brands.

The Beginning of Wacky Packages    

In September of 1961 a man by the name of Paul Laikini illustrated an article on Camel cigarettes in issue #21 of Cracked Magazine. It showed a picture of an upside down camel named after the egyptian president Gamel. Fast forward 6 years to 1967 when Art Spiegelman drew the first wacky packages, and so begins a trend deliberated by millions of children everywhere.

The First Set of Modern Wacky Packs Cards

In Spring of 1973 the first set of Wacky Packages cards came out. The peel and stick cards came out with a set of 30 to collect. Some were rarer than other because some of the cards only printed one per sheet while others printed 6 per sheet.

Wacky packages changed mostly stayed there until 2016 when MLB wacky series came out one example is Arizona diamondbacks.

Shape shifting frogs

Once upon a time there was a very silly frog. The frog goes ribbit and whenever the frog goes ribbit he becomes human. When the frog is human he works at a circus. His job at the circus is to be the ringmaster. The ringmaster is wearing a necklace hat and sunglasses . When he turns back into a frog he uses his long sticky tongue to catch flies. The frog thinks flies are very tasty. He accidentally said ribbit and ate a fly when he was a human. He said ew that’s disgusting. The frog can shapeshift back and forth between a human and frog.

I have been doing research on autism but I wanted to learn more because I was not in high school anymore. I was alone with nobody to give me inspiration. I wanted to make new friends and I wanted to meet people like me. With some help from Todd, I found what I was looking for. There was a place where people like me go to learn how to get a job and how to be a better person. That place is Seeds For Autism. At Seeds, I got to make some friends and I noticed a connection between my new friends and my friends from high school:  a strong sense of humor. People with autism are very funny and like to laugh. I’m practically the funnest guy in the world. I can make a joke about anything.
