This was an article that appeared about the challenge to Chewsy Suzy and why there was no respnse to it from either her, Grace Samuels or Bobby “BOOM BOOM” Bickerson.
The Blowing Unbelievable Bubbles League (BUBL) expresses confusion over the response to a challenge they made to the blower of the world’s largest bubblegum bubble.
“BUBL has issued a challenge to Susan Montgomery Williams, the blower of a 23 inch bubble gum bubble which has been proclaimed by Guinness as the largest bubblegum bubble blown” said Dr. Enaught T. Wiseham, co-founder of BUBL. “We want to know what her thoughts are about bubbles that have been blown that are larger than 23 inches.”
“All we have found in response is a press release from her spokesman, a Bobby “Boom Boom” Bickerson, who seems more intent on putting us down rather than answering our question. He says she has nothing to prove and he’s right. But that doesn’t address the point we are making.” said Earl “The Gum Bubble Coach” Hartwell, co-founder of
“Coach, what did you say his name was? Bobby “Big Mouth” Bickerson? That’s what he sounded like to me” Wiseham continued. “Anyway, he’s right. She has nothing to prove. She’s the most famous bubble blower ever. But that doesn’t answer our question. This whole refusal to talk about it is pretty curious.”
“I’ll say” said Hartwell. “A little research on Chewsy Suzy shows some pretty astounding facts. Now we know for sure that bigger bubbles than 23 inches have been blown, and not just because we’ve blown them. How do we know? Because, apparently, she herself has blown them! Just look at some examples of her TV appearances. She said on the Johnny Carson show that she has blown bigger bubbles. Then there was her appearance at Bubblegum Alley on the “Call To Greatness” show on MTV, where a graphic said she blew a bubble 24 inches during filming. Finally there is the youtube video from Spanish TV. Just look at the measuring stick that says “28″ on it! (A video that can be seen at http://youtube.com/watch?v=62HjZ1-LGDo&feature=related). And that’s just from a few of her TV appearances. And if that’s not enough, just look at the picture of her mammoth bubble in the July 1990 issue of Smithsonian Magazine, the one where her picture is next to a picture of bubblegum’s inventor, Walter Deimer. No telling how big she has blown other bubbles!”
“If you don’t believe it when I tell you that the Coach and I know bubbles bigger than 23 inches can be blown because we’ve done it lots of times, then just look at the videos. Of course she’s blown bigger bubbles. The videos prove it! And she won’t even say anything to us about it!” said Wiseham.
“While I’ve looked up to Chewsy Suzy for a long time, she’s also the source of years of frustration. But this is the capper. It’s time BUBL corrects this situation, and does it for the benefit of everyone who blows or even dreams of blowing big bubbles!”
“So Chewsy Suzy, Joyce Samuels (Guinness World Record Holder for blowing the largest bubblegum bubble from the nose), and Bobby ‘Boom Boom’ Bickerson, there’s nothing to be evasive about. You know by your own experience that bigger bubbles have been blown than your world record bubble, and now it’s time for BUBL to break open the world of blowing big bubbles for good. Be warned!”
“That’s right” said Hartwell. “This is a great day ever for big bubble blowers and bubblegum worldwide. Chewsy Suzy has had a stranglehold on the World Record for over 28 years, but now that the secret is out about bubbles larger than her record, it’s time for us to give her the “GUMpetition” she’s been asking for all this time!”
