I used to belive (after my mother warned me) that if you swallowed chewing gum, it would stick to your ribs.

My mom told me that when I chewed gum, little men in my mouth ran down into my stomach and told the little men down there to start disgesting. And then when no food came (since it was just gum), instead they'd start digesting my stomach. So I believed there were small creatures inside my body, who governed all my bodily actions. Imagine it, it's more traumatizing than it sounds.

I used to think that Chewing Gum grew under the tables and chairs at the Pub where my Mum worked. I can remeber picking massive wads of it and eating it along with my friend. Never swallowed it though because my mother told me that it would stick my heart to my chest so it couldnt beat. Never asked me where I got the Gum from though................

When I was a child, I used to chew a lot of gum. When my mother would
tell me to get rid of it, I would swallow it. That upset her very much so she
told me that if I kept swallowing my gum, it would all end up in my
appendix and it would eventually explode. (Which it did, but obviously not
from the gum - I think.)

When I was little, I sometimes swallowed the chewing gum accidentally. When I told my mother about this, she said my intestine would be stuck into a mess. What my mother said often made me worried for a few days.

At school we all believed that if you swallowed chewing gum instead of spitting it out, every piece wedged in your lungs and eventually you could not breathe anymore. I never swallow gum, thirty years later!

when i was wee my mum told me that if u swallowed chewing gum u'd grow a rabbits tail so i didn't ever ever do it until one day i was too curious that i hid under a desk in my bedroom to swallow it so she wouldnt see me and the tail never came. quite disappointing after the excitement that i could grow a tail had built up!

I used to belive that birds might be able to blow a bubble. I thought when someone spits thier gum out the bird would try to eat it but get it stuck on thier beak and when they tried to sing they could blow a bubble, or I thought. I thought a lot of things.

I used to believe that if you swallowed bubble gum and then hiccuped, you would slowly fill up with bubbles on the inside until they came out your mouth and nose and ears

I noticed that chewing gum came in packs of 5 sticks of gum, making it hard to share gum evenly with your friends. I concluded it was part of a conspiracy to force kids to learn how to do fractions and division! This conclusion was reinforced when I observed that the big gum packs came with 17 sticks of gum!
