Stride Gum: A Funny Story

3 06 2009

A few weeks ago, I entered a contest to rename Stride Gum´s mint-flavored gum. So, I went a little crazy submitting names with the hope that one of my names would be in the top ten. Fortunately, this is precisely what has happened. The winner gets $10,000.

I know that at least one of my names is in the top ten– everlasting mint (in fourth place at the moment). I feel like my other names might be in the running, but I completely forgot what other names I submitted. Regardless if I win or not, it feels pretty good to be recognized.

On another note, Stride  has paid for Matt (from wherethehellismatt.com) to go around the world dancing. I think it´s only fair that Matt has a female counterpart. After all, it´s the twenty-first century, and women should be sharing the stage with men, to say the least.

I sent Stride an inquiry on their ¨contact us¨page letting them know that I think I´m their lady for the job. Let´s hope I get a response!

More updates to come soon. I have tons!

The only reason I care is because my told my friend and then my teacher asked me what I was talking about so I told her and she emailed the whole entire school staff and if its not my name that is very very very embarrassing

also, finalists were supposed to be notified by mail or phone, so it´s possible that people submitted the same ideas before we did…
