This, but stuffed with gumballs.

http://www.gumballs.com/large-gumballs.html

Considering that box of 850 costs $29.99, I'm thinking of getting one now.

[EDIT] OH SHI~
http://www.gumball.com/8500-count-gumballs.aspx


That site is amazing.


That's it, my brother's getting a delivery in the mail. Hilarity will ensue.

EDIT:

Wait, I think I might go with 22,000 pieces of chicle gum instead.

...or maybe 21750 candy bananas...

SO MUCH CHOICE! :shock:

*awesome*

Run around chewing gum, plugging holes in dams and otherwise saving little below-sea-level villages.

And New Orleans.

You could always try to juggle all 850 at once. I'll give you $5 if you can.

Hmm, how heavy would 850 gumballs be, anyways? Something tells me not that heavy, but I have a hard time imagining out-of-the-ordinary things...

And I'm withdrawing that offer before the OP says anything.

Depending on if you are the type of person who could go through with it:

Get a van, and write "Free Candy" on the side, and give one gumball to every person you see. Hopefully, this will eventually attract the attention of a concerned parent/citizen. Now, at this point it's essential to make sure that you look trustworthy, the only thing out-of-place is that you're giving away candy. I'd suggest wearing a suit.

Anyways, escalate the situation until you're interviewed by a newspaper, at least. Claim the entire time that you just had 850 spare gumballs, and that you wanted to give back to your great community. You may also want to act incredulous that someone would even assume that you were a bad person, after all, who doesn't like candy?

This would even work better if you were the type of person who is well known as a community benefactor. Were you to do this plan, spend a few months beforehand volunteering and doing charity work. "That man is giving candy to children!" "I saw him the other week at the food kitchen."

We have a definite winner.
Just send me a self-addressed envelope with enough postage. You have to order a "Package" shipped from Albuquerque, NM, 87106 to wherever you are (the balls are 1" thick). For most of the US, this looks to be $1.17 in postage. I'll give you as many as reasonably fits in the envelope.
PM me to get the exact address.

I can juggle 2 12lb bowling balls, and 3 6lb ones.

How big is the box though?

In Australia, the term "marker" usually refers only to large-tip markers, and the term "felt-tip pen" usually refers only to fine-tip markers. Markers in Australia are sometimes called "texta". "Texta" is a brand name which has become generic.

Before today's comic I'd have said make a sculpture out of them and sell them on ebay. Now I'd say, build an air-pressure gun for them with a feeding hose linked to a backpack containing the gumballs and run around school, shooting people. They can hardly expell you for giving them candy. ^^

If we sell each gumball for a quarter we can make around $2000...

8500*.25=2125
Subtract cost and shipping and you get: 2125-(49.99+15)=2060.01

I'd either halve your prices or double your serving size; the 8500 box is < .5 inch diameter gumballs, the kind that toy stores sell in their tiny novelty gumball machines. In other news, my crate should be here tomorrow.

Also, good news: This thread is the top google result for "8500 gumballs" (with AND without quotes).

But my teef hurt.

They really do. I'm not really a fan of gumballs, anyway. Maybe you should make weird contests and give handfuls of gumballs as prizes.

Re: I Have 850 Gumballs (FREE GUMBALLS, P. 2!!)

I would be really tempted to try and string them together and then start whipping them at candy kids at the bar
then watch them dance
and get sticky...

THAT'LL TEACH YOU CANDY KIDS!!! STOP TRYING TO FOOL ME WITH YOUR PLASTIC BEADS!!!

Sorry.
Sidetracked.

How hard do you think it would be to drill holes in gumballs?

Seriously, with that many of them, you could probably manage to do a few of these ideas on smaller scales.

Or just go golfing.

Yeah, I'm more of a jawbreaker person...even though I shouldn't eat those either. >.<

You should just leave them somewhere in your car (if you have one) or somewhere your friends can see them, and people will randomly take them whenever you're driving. I used to always save peppermints from the Sonic drive-through, and my friends would ask if they could have them.

There's no stopping people and their need for candy I guess.

Also, good news: This thread is the top google result for "8500 gumballs" (with AND without quotes).

I've always been interested in how many of those can one person fit in their anal passage, but who's asking me?

I'd ask for free gumballs, but I don't chew gum.
