I had a great idea this morning, while walking to the office from the car park. I was chewing gum and looking for somewhere to dispose of it. Then it struck me...
If all gum-chewers threw their used gum into potholes in the roads or pavements, then very soon we would have filled all the holes. And anyone who has every tried to remove gum from under a desk, or chair, will know how hard it can set.
This could save a fortune in road repair bills and will lead to fewer people turning up to local A&E departments with twisted, or broken, ankles.
Now all I need to do is wait for someone in power (Gordon Brown or Boris Johnson, maybe) to notice this brainwave of mine and then I will be rich beyond the imagining of the rest of you mere mortals. Soon, the world will be mine! Bwah-hah-hah-hah-hah!
