Saving Millions

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!

I'm sure this idea although unhygienic isn't as mad as you think!
Chewing and bubble gum from what I recall is made from plastic or rubber, rather than gum. Surely that has recycle value, or a practicle use.

It just takes a visionary like yourself to blaze the trail.

What? You're implying that I think the idea is mad?!? How very dare you! I'm a genius, you hear. A GENIUS!

I hate to break it to you, but you just gave your idea away for free. Oops!
