big buckets of gum!


You’re never really finished a piece of gum.

… that’s somehow unsatisfying.


note: everyone quits gum eventually.

double note: “You’re not leaving this dinner table until you finish all your gum Mister!”

triple note: sometimes I’m too lazy to chew gum … and other times I don’t even think about it.

quadruple note:double note” actually uttered by Kelly Pettit … before I thought of it. I was probably thinking about things that rhyme with “gum” … other than “rubber bum”.

quintuple note: people without teeth are gum chewers too!


No thanks. I’ve got my own.

  1. Did you find out where gum comes from?

  2. Kelly Pettit: Nope. Some things should remain a mystery … like how much bear is in a gummy bear; how much elasticity is in my underwear; and how much plasm is in an ectoplasm.

  3. I was a big gum chewer, back in the day. Now I have problems with TMJ, so I pass on it. I will stick with the ones in my mouth only, no other choice! LOL

  4. I think it’s made from the leftovers of what the bloke in “The Fly” movie turned into…

  5. Hey, we use Xylitol gum and mints, too. Good stuff — just have to keep it away from the dogs.

    Thinking of gum
    was a man who played drum
    he was always a bit numb
    and he always drank a whole lot of rum

    4/10, but it was the best gum rhyme I came up with

  7. Thanks for all the comments.

    Doraz: I now understand why you just said TMJ: Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome makes my mouth sore just saying it.
    They should invent non-chewy gum.

    Tony: I’m not hungry for gum anymore.

    Dennis the Vizsla: I still don’t know how to pronounce that name. I think it’s said “keshlitol” over here.

    Cynical Scribble: don’t beat yourself up, Shakespeare didn’t even do a gum poem!

    how about …

    Whether glass or grass
    it’s the same outcomes
    When chewed in the mouth
    leaves you with sorghums.
