SEATTLE (AP) — Chewing gum once again adorns Seattle's famed gum wall less than a week after it was steamed clean of 20 years' worth of old chewing gum. reports ( )a flash mob met Saturday to leave their gum behind on the wall in the city's Pike Place Market. The group made a peace sign with the Eiffel Tower in the middle to honor Paris after Friday's terror attacks.

Last Tuesday powerful steam cleaners melted off an estimated 1 million pieces of gum from the wall, which hadn't been cleaned in 20 years. Market officials said they had expected people to continue leaving their gum after the cleaning.
