Gum Wall

Something I pass on a regular basis. I admit I didn't pay it much mind as it's a wall and it's not my focus of attention, just an alley between A to B. From parking lot to post office out to the main road. Until one day, when the wall took on a whole real, full frontal assault of my attentions and made its true presence known.

You can see that at some time, rather than remove the gum, someone just painted over all the gum. That did nothing to deter the gum stickers.

I'm most concerned by the ones proclaiming love. In chewed gum. Applied on an alley wall.

That is disgustingly hilarious. Or hilariously disgusting. I'm not sure which.

Yuck! Oh my, that's gross! Did you put your gum on it? Would you?

I did not add to the gum wall and think to steer well clear of it at all cause.

Wow, I've never seen anything like it! How bizarre.

When the pictures are cropped, they are kind of beautiful. But then you pan out and it is really gross.

But it could be worse. They could be proclaiming their love in pee.

When you are in love you just have to let the whole world know....but sticking your used chewing gum to the wall!

Apparently it works for some people. I am told that my standards are too high, and here is yet another example.

Disgustingly hilarious, but isn't it interesting how they almost look like some have been measured and placed at just the right distance apart

I noticed that too, Jomamma. This is not random walking down the alley stick my gum on the wall shenanigans. It's like ABC art!

Sy - the quote "Do not cross the streams. Crossing the streams would be bad." comes to mind.

Marg - I'm worried about personal ads spelled out in gum appearing on the wall, someday. "If you like Juicy Fruit too, call me!"

Juicy Fruit
Bwahahahahahha
Might have to rename the Bat Sh-t Bitches Club to the Juicy Fruit Bitches Club.

We'll still get special jackets made, charge dues and become millionaires, right JoMama ?

Can't quite come up with a Logo as good as the nymph with Batwings and Medusa Snake hair.
Back to the drawing board ;))

GEW (Gross and Ew combined)!!! That is NASTY!!!

They just painted over it? Now that's a whole new level of gross. :-)

I think someone once told me of a wall like this is Seattle. It appears to be a worldwide tradition. :-)~
