This is very out of character for twins. I dont know if they were identical or fraternal.That also makes a difference. You would think that this would result in A B C gum.

People need to have a little respect for the family!! How would you like reading people making a joke about something so tragic and something that hurts so deep. I DON'T and neither does MY family.
Let Blake rest in peace and let us deal with our grief in peace!

I like how the story saids the other twin is "remorseful" for doing it.....
Of course NOW he is going to say that.
But what I want to know is what kind of gum was worth stabbing someone in your family over......Maybe it was "DOUBLE BUBBLE".....
And maybe he was tired of always everything being the same!! Maybe he should of bought "Jolly Rancher" gum, and then he would of been too "happy" to stab him.....

Their jingle is....."double your pleasure....double your fun...." No, it cant be that. Maybe Hubba Bubba? It sounds like it was southern gum.
