Tree gum

A gum-covered tree in a New York State park is proof that some people heed the sage advice about not daring to swallow chewing gum, because it will stick in your innards for 17 years and will contribute to climate change, or something like that.

That's what we should do! Have a "gum tree" so that you could stick your gum to it (instead of swallowing it)!!

I can see the future now: the tree will go back to nature, but the gum will linger forever!
Anthropologist will try to figure out what role did gum play in the growth of the forest.
The photograph, however, is ART and I love it.
