Jack's Joke Shop is a store in Elwood City that sells prank and gag items such as whoopee cushions and fake piles of vomit. It is located next to the Ice Cream Shop. In "Buster's Sweet Success", Buster begins working there to pay the band back for the chocolate he ate that he was supposed to sell because Jack, the owner, is a longtime supporter of the school band. Buster, with his bad chocolate recipe, sells them at the store and names them Buster Clusters. The store is also called "Bill's Joke Shop", an example of this can be seen in "How the Cookie Crumbles" on a snake float during the parade. "Jack's Joke Shop" is a reference to Jack's Joke Shop on Tremont Street, Boston - of which closed down in 2008.
