      Well, Beverly, I suppose the gum was good at one time, but now? Ah, not so much. I have a new summer school post up that you might enjoy. Come on over!

  2. This looks like a painting … it is chewed gum on a window? A creative creation.

      After I read your comment, Leora, I looked at the photo again. It DOES look like a painting. Thanks for pointing that out!

  3. Eww do they make a wall from all the gummy that is once a yummy?? Happy RT!

    Just cutie

  4. I’m curious to know where this is. 🙂

    • magicalmysticalteacher

      Click “Gum Wall” under the photo. It’ll take you to a descriptive article on Wikipedia. The Gum Wall really exists in Seattle–and I’ll bet you thought I just made this up, right? 😉

  5. Does this stuff seal as well as caulk??

    • magicalmysticalteacher

      I imagine it does, Ralph! 🙂 It’s probably great for sealing cavities. Oh, wait! I think it CAUSES cavities. Never mind.

  6. I was a senior
    she was a novice teacher
    you chew –give me some

    Really my English teacher said, “if you chew gum in class you have to offer me some.” That wouldn’t fit my five syllables.

    Happy RT! Knowing where that gum came from, those students weren’t as lucky as I was.
    BTW, I was the only one whom she told that. I always felt I was her teacher’s pet.

  7. I hope nobody would attempt to touch that wall 🙂 would be icky hehehe! colorful though.

  8. A place to put your gun and call it art… Now that’s a Ruby find! I need to have one in my yard for all those kids used gum.

  15. Jackson Pollok chew your heart out! Chewing gum is supposed to be good for the brain.

  16. hahahahaha teacher!
    ABC gum was the ONLY gum that the golden kids could afford.
    big deal if it was Aready Been Chewed!..we used to scrape it up from the sidewalks or anywhere else that others had thrown it and it WAS yum yum yum!
    this window of already been chewed gun would have been a real treasure for sure!
    boy, with all the germs nowadays, i guess there would have been nine little indians that would have got some sick and left the scenes of earth!

    thanks for your visit to me and thanks for leaving your ruby tuesday link!…… terry

    chew it in the classroom
