Two Chainz You've Found in Hotels

Murder Hotel rebranding.  Incidentally this happens more often or not when said crime happens in a hotel.  This happened to a Comfort Inn I used to stay at in Alamogordo, NM.

I'm pretty sure we'll never see multiple threads about gum.

Oh, wait.....



Anyone remember when they used to make over-the-counter or prescription drugs in chewing gum form? I think it was inspired by the chewing gum craze of the '70s and '80s.

I was in a motel room munching on an Arby's sandwich, when I realized it was so chewy I could probably blow a bubble with it. I don't think it was the meat that was so chewy. It was the bun. Just like it was gum or something.

Has anyone here ever bubbled (blown bubbles with bubble gum) while Roads Scholaring?

A friend was chewing bubble gum a couple weeks ago, and somehow she got hair stuck in her gum.

Have any of you ever gotten your wallet ruined by a chewed wad of bubble gum?

And.... we've got another.

Have you ever ruined a book by blowing a bubble with bubble gum and closing the book on it? I have a very, very vague recollection of somebody doing this once. I think it was a library book.
