Food-related curiosities don't faze Gut Check as a rule. Brain sandwich? Bring it on! But one thing that does gross us out the door is when we accidentally touch a wad of chewed gum some knuckle-dragger has deposited on the underside of a piece of furniture. Vile-O-Rama!

And then there's the Webster Groves Gum Wall.
Never heard of the Webster Groves Gum Wall? Neither had Gut Check, until a certain eleven-year-old graduate of Bristol Elementary tipped it to us.
The tipping went something like this:
Gut Check: [pointing across Lockwood Avenue at narrow passageway between between the former Webster Records location and Lockwood Chiropractic] What's on that brick wall over there? Some sort of weird graffiti?
Eleven-year-old: [scornfully; adults are clueless] It's not graffiti. It's gum. You don't know about the Gum Wall?!
We did not. But we do now, and we're here to tell you it's a sight to behold.More »
