Brain Gum ?

Have any of you seen the commercial for this gum that is supposed to improve your memory,and make you think faster, as well as make it easier to learn ?

It is one thing for marketers to say, oh chew our gum, you will have freash breath and get more sex.

But, chew our gum and it will make you smarter ? Give me a break, please !

You sound reasonable. Must be time to up my medication.

Does that mean one can actually walk and chew gum at the same time now?

Whoops, crap…sorry :wink:

Probably has caffeine in it. Caffeine is already known to help short-term memory.

And now, for my next trick, I will talk in spooky half-references.


Anyone who tries this gum will become addicted, and controlling the world supply will be our first step towards global domination!

Pinky, are you pondering what I’m pondering?

I don’t know about the gum, but my husband just bought some “Blitz Power” frozen dessert. I’m assuming (since it’s all in German) that it’s supposed to be an energy booster. It contains Guarana and caffeine. Tastes kind of like pineapple sherbert.

Sigh. What’s next, wrinkle reducing doughnuts?

Shall I call it the $1,000,000,000 Bar
or O Hippie?

Am I ruling the world yet?

Let’s not forget our friend Mr. Placebo. Does anyone know what they use to create this gum?

Gum that raises the IQ?
Heck of a marketing concept, and it actually makes a weird sort of sense.
Anyone who would buy chewing gum to get smarter only has one way to go.


Of course it works.

Once you’ve chewed the whole bloody pack, and you realize you’ve just pissed your money away, you’ll feel smarter…

You say “cheesy” like that’s a BAD thing.

I don’t know if it works, but wouldn’t it work best if you stuck it behind your ears? :slight_smile:

Yer pal,

Maybe you’re supposed to plug the hole after you get trepaned. :slight_smile:

You say “cheesy” like that’s a BAD thing.

Guys, a package of this damn gum runs between $10.00 & $20.00,that is per package.

I think I’ll just stay stupid ! I would rather spend my money at the craft store !

I don’t want to say this might be a fraud, especially as I know next to nothing about this fine product, but it sounds like one of those deals where you send a guy $50 for a book entitled “How to Get People to Send You $50.00 for a Book”.

Imagine the Marketing group working on this one -
Marketeer 1: “Buy this gum and it’ll make us look smart.”
Marketeer 2: “I love it.”
