dont swallow gum, it will stick to your stomach , your whole life.
When I was about 5 years old, I had a bad habit of swallowing gum. One day my grandmother told me if I swallowed too much gum, it would stick my "poopers" together and I would never be able to go to the bathroom again. I was so terrified of accidentaly swallowing another piece that I didn't chew gum again until I was about 12.
I used to believe that chewing gum stayed in your stomach for seven years. At thirteen I decided I needed to loose weight and started swallowing gum to fill up my stomach so I'd feel full all the time and wouldnt want to eat food.
I swallowed gum once when I was little, and I told my dad about it so he'd give me another piece. He told me that when I tried to poop later, I'd blow a bubble out my butt! I totally believed him! Now I tell my friends' kids the same thing, and they swallow it on purpose to see if it's true. :-) Hee hee!
When I believed that if you swallowed too much gum, then a gum tree will form in your stomach. Once it gets too many leaves, you explode.
When i was younger i once swallowed chewing gum and didnt think much of it until i told my mum, she told to that because i had swallowed it, next time i would go to the toilet to do a number 2 i would blow bubbles out of my bottom! I was so upset and wanted her to get the chewy out of my stomich! It stoped me from having Chewing gum until i was alot older
When I was 4 years old, I asked my baby-sitter why she didn't chew gum in bed at night, and she said that it was because when she woke up, it would end up in her hair, and from then until I was 11, I thought that if you slept with gum in your mouth, it somehow fell to the back of your head and came out through your hair follicles (though I obviously didn't know that word at such a young age).
I was told that Hubba Bubba and Bubbalicious contained spider's eggs and that's what made it so crackly and poppable. EW- I still hate gum.
I would calculate how old I would be before the gum I just swallowed would go through my system, since it took seven years
When I was about five and learning how to chew gum, I thought that every time I accidently swallowed it that my parent would ge a message in their head saying that I did. Since I thought they already new i swalled it, I'd tug on my dad's pant leg and just say, "Sorry Dad".
I used to believe that gum was made outta pig fat becuase of what my dad told me. I believed him for years.
I used to belive that if you swallowed gum then it will stick to your butt and your butt will stick together which will not let you poop! I always used to swallow my gum and my mom told me that so I wont choke!
I believed chewing gum was made out of the eyes of deer.
i used to believe that if you swallowed gum, when you breathed in, your stomach would stick to your back
My dad use to tell me that if I swallowed gum it would plug up my bum hole and eventually I would explode,
of course my well meaning parents told me that swallowing chewing gum would make it stick to the insides of my tummy and i wouldn't poo properly. so i stuck it behind my ear one day for later (saw it on tv)- my best friends mum ended up chopping out a HUGE chunk of my 'crowning glory' and we all had to keep it from mum cos i wasn't supposed to chew gum. i think i cried
My mother told me chewing gum was made from horses hooves!
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.
Someone told me that Chewing Gum, if swollowed, would stay in your digestive track for up to seven years. But after asking 4 different doctors and 2 dentists I have come to the conclusion that is not true.
It is unhealthy to swollow it though.
when I was younger, my cousins gran told me that gum was made from horse-hair and I believed her, I always wondered why they didn't put it on the packet and used to look for it in the ingredients every time.
