We've seen celebrity portraits made of jelly beans, and even out of ABC (already been chewed) gum, but now Obama has been forever immortalized in a multi-colored gum ball mosaic. Thanks to Ripley's Believe It Or Not, you can now look at a delicious Obama portrait made of 12,784 gumballs -- that's worth a lot of quarters!
"When Ripleys Believe It or Not! asked artist Franz Spohn if he could create a portrait of Barack Obama from thousands of gumballs, the artist, along with a bunch of kids from Ohio said, 'Yes, we can!'" the Ripley's Newsroom says.
Now that's a sticky idea!
