    Some British towns are considering a tax on chewing gum, to be used to

    clean the streets and public places people leave their gum..............

    Why now??? When in some places the steets are allready paved with

    gumstains...........

    It's one of those pollutions that allways amazed me......

    When i walk in front of a trainstation or one of the platforms i am allways

    baffled so many people just spit out their gum instead of throwing it away

    properly in a waistbin.

    I suggest not only a 50% tax on gum(instead of the one penny/pack

    suggested suggested in England........), but also a thousand dollar fine on

    gum littering!!!!


    Dissgum!!

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    according to Wikipedia, most modern gum uses petroleum based plastic instead of Chicle
