Chewing Gum Tax

I tried for a while to come up with a clever title, like "Chewing the Fat" or "Chew on This" or something chewing related. I got nothing. I give up. So I'm just calling this "Chewing Gum Tax." Intrigued?

Mexico City is considering a tax on chewing gum, or "chicle," as they call it, to help defray the hefty costs associated with its cleanup. You ever notice all of the small circular black spots on the pavement as you walk down a sidewalk? Gum.
