The gum thread

Wrigley's Doublemint for me, although occasionally I'll go crazy and get Spearmint.

And you?

One night McMurphy finds Chief Bromden awake and talks to him. He wonders where he gets his chewing gum, for Chief Bromden never visits the canteen, but then realizes that the Chief chews already-used gum.

Chuck Yeager and I agree: It has to be Beamans.

I like the foosball-sized gumballs in the 25 cent machines. It's a little bit of a gamble, could be semi-fresh and chewable, could be from the 80's. Orange or red for me. Getting a green or white is like a kid getting socks for Xmas. I like blue too, but then you can't smile at anyone for awhile.

I haven't tried bubble gum for a long long time.

I always loved fruit stripes, but it tends to lose it's flavor after about 6 chews.

With Andy Griffith in the news the past couple days that is an understandable typo.


A friend's kid had some Big League Chew the other day and offered to share it with me. I didn't know, until after the first bite, that it comes in different flavors.

That's it, I'm breaking the bonds of Wrigley oppression TODAY!

Big league chew and Beemans, here I come.

What? No Black Jack? You got something against consuming coal tar derivatives? They're organic--they have to be good.

Gum is older than gun.

Well, it does show up earlier in the dictionary--so it must've gotten there first.

My kids loved Bubblicious Grape. Me, once in a blue moon, I like Spearmint or Bazooka regular.
