What a cool idea! A poetry publisher that not only puts out an online journal, but also distributes poems via gumball machines. As of now there's only 7 Gumball Poetry machines worldwide, mostly in the Western US, but they're ready to make more. Next time you've got a quarter jinglin' in your jeans skip the gum and get some free verse instead.

I agree. Great idea. I thought the web site was pretty awful though, nav-wise. Thanks for the link!

Yeah, I noticed that when I was buliding the post, dobbs. But the concept was so amazing I decided to post it anyway. I wish my grocery had one of these.

there's been a gumball poetry machine in the park at Sandpoint in Seattle for about two years. between the soundgarden and the former home of the monolith if you want to visit

Hmm, what would Homer Simpson do?

Hmm... seems like an easily copyable, and completely un-patentable (unless the US Government, well, acts like it usually does) idea.
