The phrase "That gum you like is going to come back in style" (I know
it's not precisely that..) has been nagging at the back of my brain.
I've been trying to think what sort of gum that would be, because I
can't accept that it's Wrigley's Doublemint.  That's too obvious.

I was thinking about the other types of gum that we know of...

...such as Guar Gum?  Nope, haven't seen any Guars recently on the
show, however, I'm not going to preclude the idea that we'll be seeing
some Guar at the Veterinary clinic, so we'll have to wait and see.
Maybe they'll be adding it to the menu at the diner (and maybe that
explains the fish head in the coffee pot!!!).

Then again, it could be Gum Arabic.  This makes more sense when you
consider the connection between Norwegians and Arabs.  Both are
interested in oil (Norwegians in the North Sea, and Arabs in, well,
their back yards).  Consider that the Norwegians are interested in
buying the mill (which as you all can predict is going to be burned to
the ground in a future episode) because what's-ername (the evil
red-headed woman) there let some outsiders conduct oil-presence
studies (don't know what they're called).  The Norwegians expected to
make a killing, but left because they heard that Arabs were coming to
outbid them.

Of course, all the secret dealings took place in the (how you say)
convenience store?
