Burn Yourself With Big Red Gum




This is a neat trick that will cause severe pain, and a red mark. You don't really need much for this, a stick of Big Red, some saliva, and a high tolerance to pain.
You'll need:
-A stick of Big Red Brand chewing gum
-The wrapper from the gum

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Unwrap the Gum

Very easy, simply unfold the tabs on the wrapper and remove the stick of gum

Step 2: Chew the Gum

Take the stick of gum you removed from the wrapper (Don't place the wrapper in your mouth), place it in your mouth, and chew. Don't do this in any other order no matter how funny it may seem.

Step 3: Chew the Gum for 3 Minutes

Move your lower jaw up and down, with the gum in your mouth for three minutes. Enjoy the flavour, it is good gum.

Step 4: Lick the Wrapper

Take the wrapper (you saved it didn't you?) Lick it then stick it to your forehead.

Step 5: It's Gonna Hurt

It won't hurt right away. Give it about 30 seconds.

Use it how ever you see fit, but remember, it's only funny when it hurts your friend, not you.

    I have trouble with this step. Every time when I try to unfold the wrapper the gum falls on the bathroom floor. What do I do? Should I fashion a netting system out of toilet paper? That way after it falls, if I'm lucky, the gum will land safely in the netting system. You should really have been more descriptive with your instructions.

    The netting system could work, but in the long run it might hurt you. My theory is that if you're stupid enough to not open a peice of gum, you'll forget to take it off your forehead and get a serious chemical burn and come sue me. So you're responsible for your own fate.

     could you also use a winter fresh wrapper or would it do the opposite?
