“What does gum and gun have in common?"/"Pull it out in class and everyone wants to be your friend”

"The similarity between a pack of gum and a gun is that people want to be your friend when you pull it out” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on February 8, 2020. “What do gum and gun have in common? You pull one out in school and everyone wants to be your friend” was posted on Twitter by jordan on August 2, 2020. “What does gum and a gun have in common?

The dark joke is based on school shootings. If you bring “gum” to school, everyone wants to be your friend to get a treat. If you bring a “gun” to school, everyone pretends to be your friend so they don’t get shot.
