Although this is a popular story, and I’ve always taken it to be another bizarre yet true part of the legend of General Santa Anna, upon researching it further for this comic, I’ll admit that I can’t find any solid proof that he actually inadvertently introduced chewing gum to the United States. A lot of articles about it and even some claiming of first hand accounts, but without seeing the documentary evidence, I can’t confirm it myself.

So although today’s comic doesn’t hold up to my standards of historical accuracy for Two Party Opera, I still wanted to retell it since General Santa Anna is ridiculous. Does anyone else want to weigh in on the history of this?

And thank you for the patience with the sporadic comics lately – for those not in the know, for the last few months, I’ve been re-enrolled in college after all these years to finally finish my degree. But the good news is, I’ve only got a month left to go!
