Big League Chew’s Hidden Phallus Invades Target Stores!

Big League Chew t-shirts at Target with classic phallus-faced baseball player art! Certainly gives 'play ball!' a whole new meaning.

I've written about Big League Chew here on I-Mockery quite a few times in the past. As a bubblegum that comes in tasty man size wads, Big League Chew stands apart from all traditional forms of the treat. I've also discussed how the original cartoon mascot on packages of Big League Chew had a semi-hidden phallic component.

Well, you can imagine my surprise when I was in Target the other day and stumbled on a Big League Chew t-shirt featuring the original psycho baseball player art instead of their modern package design. Maybe when I had a boatload of people email Wrigley about switching back to the original art, they decided to placate us with this t-shirt release instead of changing the actual packages. Well, it's a start, but I still want them to switch the packages back to the original design. And now is the perfect time to do it since everything from Lucky Charms to Doritos has been releasing limited-time retro packaging for their products. We want our vintage man size wads! You hear me, Wrigley!?

Anyway, I love that Target is unknowingly carrying a t-shirt with a phallus on it right there in plain daylight. Sure, it's not something everybody would notice at first glance since it's sitting next to other innocent t-shirt designs for Icee drinks 'n all, but make no mistake about it...

What penis? I see no penis! I only see Big League Chew!'s right there. The hidden image in this classic Big League Chew art is about as subtle as a brass knuckles punch to the throat. I may not care about baseball, but I'll be proudly wearing this shirt around town to show support for phallus-faced baseball players with scoundrel moustaches. I suggest you do the same.

While we're on the subject, what were some of your favorite childhood bubblegum brands & flavors?

So funny! I spent $18 on Big League Chew for my class during state testing and the kids were going home phallus-faced!

I saw that shirt the other day when I was at Target with a friend of mine. I didn't notice the wang-jaw. It actually looks more like balls than a dong. Anyway she asked me what Big League Chew was and I responded by giving her an open handed slap.

When I was in junior-high the product “Bubble-Tape” was just becoming popular. Many of the school teachers were ready to handout a detention, because the packaging looked like a can of Copenhagen when it was in your blue jeans pocket. To their surprise, when you pulled out of your pocket a Pink case filled with bubble gum they didn’t know what to say (or do)... It stopped them and their power-trip right in their tracks.

man, I dunno what kinda crazy dicks YOU'VE been looking at.. but that looks like a toe with a hole in the end..
I never had big league chew, but I like the idea of gum you can portion out.. that, bubble tape, tiny-gumballs... etc.

I remember Zebra Gum was very tasty along with Bubble Tape. Also, I don't know of any school that didn't confiscate your gum because "kids were putting chewed wads under the desk tables".

Are you saying the bulging cheek looks like a dong-head? Because with the placement of his hands, I see him chawin' down on a huge invisible pecker!

Wetstereorebel: Thats the beauty of clever vulgarity. If youre clever enough no one can ever actually be certain of what they saw.

when I was little, my mom would buy us peach flavoured gum at the grocery store if we were good. It was wrigley brand too, I think. I don't think it exists anymore, at least, not where I live, but it was the best tasting gum I'd ever had!

I remember bubble gum cigars when I was a kid. Loved the "Pink Owl" personally, though I seem to remember it also came in blue and yellow (can't remember what they were called.)

Bubble Tape, it's 6 feet of bubble gum for you, not them

The Target by my house no longer has the BLC shirt. Either it was a hot item or someone caught on. It could have been both, I guess.

i didnt see the phallic symbol the way you pointed it out. i thoguht the way he was holding his bat made him look like he was performing fellatio, and the wad was the um.... tip.

Ahhh...Big League Chew...banned in my parents house due to the huge wads that got magically stuck in the green shag rug. Here's a good one, anyone remember the Freshen-Up gum with flavors like, 7-up, Dr. Pepper, & A&W Root beer with the liquid centers from like the mid-80's...Razzles were also just awesome!! First it's candy, then it's gum!!!

SewnonSmile - Razzles rule! I wish more places carried 'em these days, because more people should try them.

As for Freshen-Up gum, wow... I haven't thought about that brand in ages. Great stuff:

Hmmm...let's see, Phallus faced baseball players & "The gum that goes Squirt!" nuff said


James (Guest) on 07/08/2011 3:06 pm

I love that outrageous, in your face art style. We used to get Hubba Bubba in weird flavors like watermelon and practice cracking the gum as loudly as possible to annoy adults. Fruit Stripe was good, too.

The only thing I can take from this is that if any of you really think that looks like a dick, you must have a very bizarre-looking dick.

his hands & his cheek KINDA look like the gesture one makes when indicating a bj (slide of hand & tongue against cheek). Hope the pitcher doesn't throw a spitball, hehehehe.
