I can't help it.

They are right next to the register.


Like when I was a kid and I would beg. Sometimes I'd get them. Sometimes I'd get a smack.

So, I grab a couple. $1 a pack. Even if I spend five bucks and get one good joke or blog from them it's worth it.

I got this Bruce Wayne card. Couple of chuckles come time mind. Secret life? Him and Robin hiding things in the 'batcave.' Those glasses. The sweater/shirt combo with the gheri-permed helmet that could protect his skull better than anything connected to the bat suit.

Oh crap it's got gum!

Quick math.

Batman released in 1989. This is...check the cell phone...2009. Twenty years old.

I won't swallow it.

I'll just chew it. See what happens.

Is there still flavor? Will it still taste like gum? Will it make me sick? What is the emergency medical number? Just in case.

How the hell would I explain it?

"So, let me get this straight, you bought a pack of two decade old trading cards from a flea market and decided it would be a good idea to eat the gum? I refuse to pump your stomach. You should die for being so dumb."

It's gum. What could go wrong? If it tastes like crap I'll spit it out and grind some Rolaids in my mouth.
