The Case Of The Exploding Bubble Gum
Bubble Gum Ad.jpg"Up next on Mythbusters..."

I will bet you my bag of Big League Chew that this odd tale will be on Mythbusters within the year. In the Ukraine, a student at the Kiev Polytechnic Institute was apparently murdered by an exploding stick of chewing gum.

A "loud pop" was heard on the poor lad's room. People went in, and the young scientist's face was blown off. Brought down in the prime of life by Bazooka.

Bits of chewing gum was found around the victim's face. The theory is that the kid was conducting an experiment and had dipped the gum in an "unidentified chemical substance", thought to be some type of explosive." Then there was a mixup of substances, the C4 coated gum was chewed a few times and ... you know, ka-pow.

Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, we need your brilliance to get to the bottom of this whodunit.

Apparently, he couldn't conduct experiments and chew gum at the same time.

Where can the original Hubba Bubba be bought?? NOT the new watermelon, island punch, tape or goddamned GLOP bullshit, but the real deal original recipe that was actually good and worked incredibly well for blowing head-sized bubbles. That stuff was the bomb!

Sounds like someone was trying to make that exploding gum from Mission: Impossible

I didn't know George Harrison did Hubba Bubba commercials.

Man, that does look like George. Probably a side project.
