"A perfectly silly, genius idea" -- David Letterman

The FanGum Gallery

After a few hundred CelebriGum photos, I realized that gum photography was too much fun to keep to myself.  I began soliciting FanGum photos, and in doing so I unleashed a tidal wave of gum creativity.  It soon became apparent that window ledges are only the beginning.  Here are some entries from the February 2013 FanGum Photo Contest, judged by Paul Shaffer:

Mark Gentle's winning entry, taken at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, Huntsville, Alabama.  That's a Lockheed A-12 spy plane from the 60's.

Paul gave honorable mention to this pair by Catherine Huggins, taken in the Iowa Governor's Mansion.  Catherine used little glass bases for her family of gum wads, so as not to deface the historic 1869 home.

I especially appreciate Jack O'Brien's Lego recreation of a CelebriGum photo, titled "The Bashful Astronaut."
