Photo of the Day: The Wall of Gum

Jun 20, 2021 at 09:27 am by WGNS

The infamous bubble gum wall in Seattle, Washington is a site to see. It is full of ABC (Already Been Chewed) gum of all colors – some faded and some nice, bright and wet (gross).

It is in a dimly lit walkway lined with an old brick road. Reports indicate only a few pieces of neatly placed gum started the tradition in about 1993. In other words, some of the gum is 25 years old.

In 2009, the wall had the honor of being named one of the 5 most germy tourist attractions in the world. As you can see, the germs do not prevent tourist from leaning their yellow rented bikes against the wall.

In case you're curious, the tourist attraction with ranked at number 4 germiest is said to be the Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle, Blarney – a few miles from Cork, Ireland. People from all over lean backwards and over an edge to kiss the bottom of the stone in hopes of receiving the gift of gab. Some people should probably refrain from that kiss.

I know, germy and germiest are not real words.
