mmm, mmm...envelope

POST #    440

i'm in the process of licking a lot of envelopes and i'm hungry at the same time. i wonder if i will satiate my hunger by licking a lot of envelopes. is that even possible? will i get some sort of glue rush or anything? maybe i'll make a game out of it like principal skinner once told bart. and why hasn't anyone made flavored envelopes...or have they?

On Seinfeld, didn't George's wife/fiance die from licking too many envelopes! Wasn't George too cheap to buy the self-sealing ones! LOL.

I think those envelopes had cheap glue or something.

I seem to remember the post office saying that licking a regular stamp causes you to ingest 3 calories. So maybe an envelope is more? Some of that adhesive is sweetend, so maybe one day the'll come out with sugar-free envelopes.

why are you licking them? when i was an intern.. like 12 years ago.. i used to have to mail a lot of shit.. but i never licked it.. we used those water bottle thingies with the sponge top.

i don't think we have one of those bottle things. i guess i could use glue, but i'm only doing it in spurts and i'm too lazy to find anything like that. although, i sport some small paper cuts on my cheeks and one on my arm right now (not sure how the arm one got there).

There are about 17 calories in the glue strip of an envelope.

I cant believe that there are calories in an envelope. I want to know if there is carbs? I have been starving myself on this diet and now i find out that i have been taking in alot more calories than i thought i cant believe this! They should put a warning on the boxes!!!!!!

I am doing a school project and we have to invent something and i thought i was the one who came up the flavored evnelope idea. Well dang, I really want to know also if they really do have calories if so that is hularious!

Most envelope adhesives are made from food starch (mostly corn, potato, tapioca, or sago) -- so yes they have calories from carbohydrate. The other thing to keep in mind is that if you have a problem with the food the adhesive is made from, licking those envelopes can cause the same problems. For example, if you have difficulty with nightshade toxins, envelope adhesives containing potato starch can mess you up.
