NASA Presents CelebriGum From Space!

During the recent space shuttle Discovery mission, one of the astronauts leaned out an International Space Station window to snap this dramatic photo.

Now don't start with "there's no celebrity in the picture, it doesn't count, wah wah wah."  There are plenty of celebrities on that continent.

The crew of shuttle mission STS-133 dropped off spare parts, delivered and installed a storage module, and did some repointing work on the space station's brick facade.

    I haven't seen that many celebrities in one place since I left rehab. *RIM SHOT*

    "Open the pod bay door, Gum."

    ♫ Does your chewing Gum lose its flavor on the spacecraft overnight? ♫

    (See, I just KNEW the Gum was Beemans!)

  2. I'm weeping at the beauty of this.

    "Captain, there are cling-ons off the port ledge."

  4. In space, nobody can hear your rim shot.

  5. I wonder if Celebrigum will someday voyage to Uranus?

    Steve: Your "AliGum" quote has earned you one of these: http://www.ilovewavs.com/Effects/Music/Sound%20Effect%20-%20Rimshot.wav
    (You might not be able to hear it until re-entry.)

    "Alien Gum form...Looks like it's been dead a long time...Fossilized...Looks like it's growing out of the window ledge."

    Karl: Taint beyond the realm of possibility.
