Here is another gum story that's kinda funny and pretty painful. Yesterday, I grabbed a pair of bike shorts from the dryer, got dressed and went out for 15 mile ride. Barely into the ride I noticed an irritation in my backside. The longer I rode the more annoying it became, then it started to really hurt. No matter how much tugging and rearranging of my shorts helped. Well, I got home and went upstairs to change and take a shower. As I pulled off the shorts I discovered a piece of gum stuck in the shorts, and elsewhere. I can only assume someone left gum in their pockets that ended up in my shorts during the wash or dry.
Moral. Always check you shorts for UFOs (unidentified foreign objects).
