What, Only 10 Minutes?

Normally we do not report trivial news stories, but this is exceptionally trivial, so it stands out. A Canadian news source,, has this amazing tale:

Edmonton senior sues over gum mishap
Mark Strashok Sep 23, 2011

An Edmonton senior is suing Kraft Canada for $100-thousand after getting gum stuck in her dentures.

The Edmonton Sun reports the statement of claim was filed a couple of weeks ago by Elsie Pawlow, who says the incident caused her to suffer depression.

The allegation is that Elsie bought five packages of Stride gum, but then had to dig it out of her dentures after it broke up into little pieces.

She then went into a bout of depression that lasted about 10 minutes.
