I just saw on tv how gum doesnt digest and just comes out the way it went in.
So Ce-Ce, Peggy and I were talking.   And i asked them, do you think that the gum would come out still sticky?
And we werent sure, what do ya'll think?
And then Ce-Ce asked if our stomas could blow bubbles with it!!!  now surely that isnt possible but that would be hilarious!!!
 
Any thoughts?

LOL - too funny! Although, my stoma (Sybil) could probably blow bubbles if she was in the mood! [hee hee]

I don't think it would come out sticky, though. I haven't chewed gum in years, but I know if I chewed it too long, it kinda started to get yucky and fall apart 'cause I think it got too much moisture in it. My jaw would get sore before the flavor was gone, though. ;) I think all the acid in our stomachs would really do a number on it.
