Thrill's Big Brown Blog Is As Shocked As You Are

February 14, 2017


This is one of those stories that makes me cringe. We go to Fort Pence, Florida where first graders at St. Lucie Elementary School like to play a game at recess that they made up. I remember doing the same thing as a kid. But here's where my experience and these Floridian kids' experience go down decidedly different paths:

In their case, the game is to find as many chewed pieces of gum as they can and stuff it into their mouths. The 'winner' is the kid with the biggest 'wad' of gum in their mouth. 

And that is f**king disgusting, but it gets worse.

One of the kids playing the game was the DEFINITIVE winner of having the biggest 'wad' in his mouth...because it wasn't gum in his mouth. 

It RHYMES with 'gum'.

This kid (unknowingly) was chewing on a USED CONDOM! And yea, I know that 'used condom' doesn't rhyme with gum. 

Kid was rushed to the hospital as a precaution. No idea what the doctor's discovered. 

Anyway, this squishy story inspired today's question: WHAT WAS YOUR SHOCKING DISCOVERY?

We had plenty of 'good' answers (well, 'good' is relative) but none of them topped the above story...and I'm kinda happy about that. The idea of a little kid chewing a used condom just makes my skin crawl.

I'm all for some outside action. I appreciate that the anonymous offenders practiced safe sex. But, if you're gonna bump uglies in the great outdoors, can you NOT leave your sticky sleeve on a kids' playground?!? At least until my kids are outta school!

I'm outta here. Until tomorrow, do what you do best and STAY BEAUTIFUL!
