How many calories does licking an envelope give you?

I have heard that every time you lick an envelope to seal it, you consume 8 calories. Is this true or a load of old tosh?

Surely it would depend on size and make of envelope and glue used.

    Some suggest there’s about 17 calories in the average one. It’s 3 calories for licking a stamp!

    Who licks envelopes these days. They have envelope sealer and besides I saw a news story several years ago that a woman licked an envelope and got a small paper cut on her tongue and then it got infected with a bunch of baby cock roaches. Envelope factories are very dirty and bugs can lay their eggs on the glue and then when you lick it you are licking bug droppings.

    Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any assistance is very much appreciated.
