B.J. Novak

Look at all those splotches on the sidewalk.  So many discarded pieces of gum that aren't famous, that don't have their own website.  Meanwhile, a few yards above, there's another discarded wad of gum that's now the most famous and beloved piece of gum in the world.

The next time you're about to throw away your gum, stop and think.  Do you want to annoy pedestrians, or do you want to change history?  

Third option: dispose of your gum properly in a waste receptacle.  Thank you.

    "Be not afraid of greatness: some wads of Gum are born great, some achieve greatness and some are thrust upon a window ledge."

  2. Just think of all the gum that's been manufactured and discarded since gum was invented. Can't they make it recyclable? It could be re-used wherever cushioning or softness is needed. Perhaps it could be used by the army to better armor vehicles against IED's in Iraq? Just sayin.

    I'm also concerned about Mr. Novak's initials.

  5. Don't forget the spammers and trolls who comment on the Beth Ostrosky Stern entry!

    Maybe I should delete those.
