Barry Chappell’s Nicorette gum collection weighs 175 pounds. He’s been collecting it for six years, carefully adding new pieces to his giant gum ball measuring 62 inches in circumference. So big it’s actually registered as the world’s largest medicated gum ball by Ripley’s, Pop Candy reports.
It’s nice to know some people still follow their dreams. Chappell has elaborate instructions for adding to his gum ball. Here’s a nice, weird and gross behind-the-scenes graphic below. Like all Ripley’s warnings: Please do not try this at home. It’s not dangerous — just unsanitary. Seriously, who wants to use their sauna to heat chewed Nicorette gum?
