The Power of Nightmares

Like in the advert for Virgin Red, I once dreamt that I blew a bubblegum bubble so big that I floated away.

That dream turned into a nightmare when a bird accidentally flew into it, popped it, and sent me falling. And then I woke up.

It did nothing to help ease my fear of heights, that’s for sure.

Big Babol – big blunder?

I was in a shop the other day when I came across a new brand of bubblegum. It was called Big Babol.  Yes, that was how it was spelt. I wondered whether it was actually meant to be spelt like that or whether it’s makers Chupa Chups had just wasted thousands of pounds on the product only to make one massive spelling error on the packaging.

My personal opinion was that it was, in the words of the cool internet kids, an epic  fail. But having said that, I suppose it’s something that will make the manufacturers a lot of money over time, so long as the bubblegum actually tastes decent and you can blow big babols with it.  Aargh- I mean bubbles!
