Only a cynic would believe that this was not a true breakthrough in modern education. *pop*

Einstein always had it stuck in his hair.

You'd be surprised how much information can be crammed onto cheat-sheets written on gum wrappers.

Hang on.

I can't post and chew gum at the same time.

Silly me, I kept telling my kid to study harder!

Without improvement on the Woodcock Johnson Test, this result just doesn't stand up. It's just not very firm.

My teachers always made us spit our gum out if we got caught chewing it in class. Little did they know how much they were damaging our education by doing this. I feel the need to sue somebody.

I used to chew on my bottom lip whenever I saw those double-mint twins, is that related?

This is what Jack Bauer contributed to the study.
