Saving The Euro By Making Less Sticky Chewing Gum
Whether you follow the financial news closely or not, you’ll probably be aware that Spain, along with a few other countries in Europe, have serious financial problems that need addressing fast.
A sticky situation? Definitely.
The Spanish Government has acted fast and decisively.
A Cabinet Meeting decided last week to bring in a regulation to make the country’s chewing gum less sticky. This act is hoped to save hundreds of thousands of Euros in street cleaning costs.
You can read more on this story in this week’s Confectionery News.
Now don’t get me wrong, I dislike discarded chewing gum as much as anyone else (by the way, if you sit on it, put your clothes in the freezer… you can just break the chewing gum off then).
But I can’t help thinking that Spain’s government has a strange order of priorities when it comes to their current financial plight.
