This is not the first time that I’ve posted about the idiosyncracies in Singapore. Hell, it’s not even the second time. What astounds me, however, is that stories like this keep popping up. Now don’t get me wrong: I’m all about celebrating our global diversity. It’s just really fascinating (in a good way) to me that one culture can reject something that another culture (and 4 out of 5 dentists) deems as completely harmless. Go figure.
This, on the other hand, is just dumb.

    You know… that thing about Singapore giving in to allow gum because of pressure from the U.S. really rubs me the wrong way. I think it’s because I would rather they lighten the ban because their own people want gum rather than because the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee and the Wrigley lobbyists want to send gum over there. Sheesh.

    Yeah. It’s a global conspiracy – first we’re going to rot their teeth, then we’re going to sell them dentures. ((evil laugh)) HA! HA! HA!
