“How do you repair a damaged Toll Booth?"/"Toll Gate Booth Paste.”

A toll booth joke is:

Q: How do you repair a damaged Toll Booth?
A: Toll Gate Booth Paste.


The pun on “Colgate toothpaste” has been cited in print since at least 1999.

A truck driver is driving his rig down the highway - and he loses control and crashes into an empty toll gate! The truck jack knifes off the side of the road and comes to rest with the pieces of the toll booth shattered all over the place! The driver of the truck climbs out and surveys the damage.

He’s about to get on his CB to call for help when a van pulls up and four men get out and start gathering up the tiny pieces that were once the toll booth.

They collect them up and start putting them together like a jigsaw puzzle using this white creamy stuff from big tubes in the van.The truck driver watches in amazement! In less than half an hour the booth is back on site as good as new! The driver is totally amazed and approaches one of the men!

“That was incredible! I’ve never seen anything like it! What was that white stuff you were using?”

The man looks at him and says: “Toll Gate Booth Paste.”

Hopefully they would have to have an emergency repair kit on hand containing, most importantly, “toll gate booth paste”.
