The world's most disgusting tourist attraction -- no, not Times Square -- is getting a facelift. No, the famed Gum Wall in Post Alley, near Pike Place Market in Seattle, has endured 20 years of gum-sticking without a single cleaning. But, all that's about to change, as cleaners are going to strip the 54ft wall of its gooey additions, with the sugar being deemed destructive. No word on whether a dentist is behind the proceedings.
The cleaning will no doubt prove to be one of the stickier jobs around, beginning November, 10, and after the wall is steam cleaned, people will again be able to affix gum to it. Inevitably, someone will probably have likely have to clean it again 20 years later, but, well, that's someone else's problem down the road.
