I had to read that twice. :)

Does a bubble sort use a sticky bit? Or, is it just full of hot air?

    *giggle* I reckon it's implemented using a stack. No matter how many pieces of gum you push() in your mouth, you always end with a pop().

      Kudos on a nice pun. Smooth and all that.

      Um, maybe i should chomp() some and take a crack at it.

        *applause* Wonderful! :-}

        Here's something more on topic. Cinnamon's been mentioned as a chewing gum flavor, but what about other spices? The first commercial chewing gum was Adams' "Black Jack" anise-seed gum, with a flavor similar to licorice. It's still made in very small quantities as a nostalgia item. In that same 1898 product line were clove-flavored gum (which I think was intended to be a more genteel alternative to chewing whole cloves) and a true oddity, (Doctor) Beeman's Pepsin gum, which contained a stomach enzyme which was supposed to aid the digestion.

        None of these are favorites of mine, nor to be truthful is chewing gum; I prefer chocolate and other candies. I mention them for trivia's sake.
