8 Good Universe Moments And What They Might Mean

Running into an old crush. Thinking about a friend and getting a text from them 30 seconds later. Receiving an unexpected check in the mail (that’s the exact amount needed to cover an overdue bill). We like to call these lovely experiences Good Universe Moments (GUMs, for short), and we’ve all had them, whether or…

Violet Beauregarde Would Be Happy: Dinner Gumballs Are Here

In “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory,” Violet Beauregarde met her sad end when she chewed a piece of Wonka’s Three-Course-Dinner Gum. The most amazing, sensational piece of gum in the world included tomato soup, roast beef and a baked potato. But it was the dessert course that went all wrong. The blueberry pie made…

Be My Boyfriend: Guy Who Made The World’s Largest Gumball Out Of ABC Nicorette

Look at what we got here. This fine gentleman, 50-year-old Barry Chappell, has been collecting more than 95,000 pieces of already been chewed Nicorette gum for the last six years and fashioning them into one giant gumball. He keeps this 175 pound nicotine blob in his sauna, where the gum stays moist and supple for…

Chew On This, Pervs

I’m assuming this only works on people who can’t chew gum and jerk off at the same time. [The Clearly Dope]…

Willy Wonka Fantasy Gum About To Be A Reality!

Since I was a kid obsessed with “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” I’ve been fantasizing about Ever-Lasting Gobstoppers, Lickable Wallpaper, Wonkavision, and Three-Course-Dinner Gum. The Three-Course-Dinner Gum would have been the world’s most perfect invention in Wonka’s factory had it not turned Violet Beauregarde into a blueberry prompting her dad to scream,…

Dentyne Says Practice Safe Breath, Not Safe Sex

So last night as I was wasting my time watching “The Price of Beauty,” I was beaten over the head with this new Dentyne Ice commercial during every single break. According to this advertisement, it’s the guy’s responsibility to provide protection against bad breath when the loving heats up. The concept might seem…

Crave: Blue Q Gum

What better way to say all the inappropriate things that you’re thinking than with gum and mints? We love the “Does this gum make my butt look big” gum almost as much as the “Wanna hook up?” gum. They’re a great way to break the ice … or build some up. [$1.25, Blue Q]…

Miracle Birth Control Gum

If you thought the blond Orbitz girl cornered the market on bizarre gum marketing, you clearly have not stumbled across the wonderful absurdity that is Miracle Birth Control Gum. I suppose it was only really a matter of time until someone figured out a way to sweeten breath while simultaneously preventing pregnancy. Though the product…

Is It Still Gum If It’s Not Sticky?

It’s the worst when you’re sitting at a restaurant, usually outside, and your hand grazes the bottom of the table. And it touches a hunk of old, hard gum. Gross. Pretty soon this could be an obsolete problem. A British company is developing a non-stick chewing gum that can be easily removed from surfaces. Clea…
