"The Best Guests Come Bearing Gifts"...We Met On Facebook Gum

by HANNAH LAWRENCE · March 31, 2010

    We Met On Facebook Gum:This happens to everyone -- you make the decision to accept a friend request from a person you don't know or have ever met, and then you bump into them in a checkout line at Whole Foods. It's unpleasant. But it doesn't have to be if you offer them a piece of this gum.

    The beauty of Facebook gum is it takes the paleolithic ice breaker and reinvents it by poking fun at social networking. So when you offer it the someone you only know by their alma mater, you'll feel like less of a pawn in the Facebook abyss, and remember what it was like to say real words into a person's real ear.  (Also: beavers!)
