Many years from now the parents of the little girl in the stroller will tell her, "You were there the day Kaley Cuoco of "The Big Bang Theory" was photographed for CelebriGum!"
"Wait, you mean CelebriGum used to be, like, photos of celebrities with gum?"
"Yes, before Steve Young built it into today's multi-trillion-dollar empire encompassing gambling, space tourism, fashions for the elderly, casual dining, replacement organs, and lawn care, CelebriGum was literally about celebrities and a piece of old gum."
"I never even thought of that. It's one of those words you just grow up hearing all the time, and it never occurs to you to wonder what it actually means. So when did Mr. Young stop taking the pictures of stars with the gum?"
"Stop? He hasn't stopped. He's still going strong at age 79."
