Dynamite magazine used to have a page called "Bummers" where kids could write in and say what they hated. Six bummers were picked each month and little illustrations were added by the cartoonist/artist Jared Lee. This was one of my favorite sections of the magazine. As a kid in the third grade, you'd read one, slap your forehead and think "Oh, I hate that!".

Actual Example Bummers:
("ripped from the headlines" as it were)

  • "Don't you hate having an itch down your back, and when you reach to scratch it the teacher thinks you're raising your hand so she calls on you!" — Kim Buckman, New Orleans, LA
  • "Don't you hate it when your dog gets to stay up late and watch TV when you have to go to bed!"
The promise of fame aside, if you had one of your bummers published, they sent you $5.00 — these were five 1980 dollars! (When candy bars only cost maybe 25 cents.)
