So, we're having some roofing work done on my building at UCSC this summer,
a nasty, smelly process. As part of this process, the school sent around a
pamphlet with information about the health effects of asphalt. One item
caught my eye:

"Chewing asphalt is a common practice among construction workers and has no
apparent ill effect, except for potential intestinal obstruction if
swallowed."

Wow, Wrigley's is missing out on a huge opportunity here! :-)
