Today while turning Archer upside down and swinging him around my his feet like a helicopter I noticed that he's packing a pair of black back-gums where his molars are supposed to be coming in.
Just in time for Halloween, Archer's gone dark.
I've never seen black gums before but I'm not too happy with them because frankly, they scare me. It's unnatural and clearly causing Archer discomfort. Which makes me sad. And frustrated.
I googled "black gums" and found a lot of information on trees and this black chewing gum, which apparently has a cult-like following and is quoted as having "Hi-Technical Taste" (Jean-Claude Van Damme did the commercials if you can believe it). Otherwise, I found practically nothing online about babies with black and blue gums.
So since Google has failed me, perhaps one or several of you have experience with this black-gum phenomenon. Is Archer marked by the devil or is this just routine teething bullshit?
Oh and in case you were wondering, the "black gum" is some kind of magical chewing experience, complete with caffeine and a million vitamins. Apparently it's all the rage with the kids these days.
The shit you find on the internet, man.
