Do you know what a bubbler is?

It's a very common thing, you've ALL used one, but I've heard that only people where I live call it a "bubbler." (I'm from Wisconsin, grew up in Green Bay.) So, I was wondering how many of you would know what I was talking about if I asked you where a bubbler was?



What if I asked you where the nearest Tyme (pronounced Time) Machine was? Would you think I was nuts? (My BFF from Texas did the first time she heard me talk about going to the "Time Machine!")

  • Yes I'm from Wisconsin too! I lived in Mequon, and Milwaukee for a while. A bubbler is a water fountain *wink*.. and the tyme machine is the ATM.. but it's a type of ATM.. like the brand of the bank or whatever.. but it says TYME on it.. I forgot about them.. thanks for the memories! And enjoy your snow.. I'm in Florida now and I miss it SO much :( !

  • I'm from WI, too. So yes, I know what youre talking about. When I moved to VT several years ago, it took me a few weeks to realize that everyone thought I was insane whenever I mentioned needing to find a tyme machine. Lol...

  • Where I come from a bubbler is a device used to smoke pot.

  • Never heard of a tyme machine, the only thing I've ever heard referred to as a bubbler is a marijuana pipe that passes the smoke through water.

  • Now that's funny. Where I come from, a pot pipe with water in it is either called a bong or a water pipe. A bubbler is something VERY different.

  • Wow! I NEVER heard of a bubbler being drug paraphenalia! (Maybe I don't have enough fun! LOL!) I assure you all, a bubbler is completely legal to use all over the country!
