CO is trying to sell me a 1:20 connection in EWR on at itinerary that would be LGW-EWR-ORD. With Customs and the terminal change, is that even close to being possible? I am a US citizen, so that will help, but it seems real tight.
I can't decide whether I miss the tulip or the bowling shoe more

Why risk it and make your whole trip more stressful? You'd be worried about any delay out of LGW, nervous when the bags don't come out right away for your flight despite later flights coming out, etc.
I've learned after many years of connections that the saved 40 minutes is not worth the stress involved unless your trip is extremely time critical. Not having close connections looming over your head makes your whole trip more relaxing.
Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

I agree with this. Even if you miss your first connection, CO runs flights EWR-ORD every 2 hours. What time does your flight into EWR arrive? Current timetable shows flights arriving at 13:30 and 15:45, giving you plenty of time to catch a later flight if you miss your connection. I would check with reservations though, to check on their mis-connect policy.

Even though EWR-ORD departs from Terminal A, it may not be that much of an issue. When are you considering traveling? According to info published in the CO forum on FlyerTalk, CO is going to be adding a Terminal A-Terminal C shuttle by this summer, which should make your connection much easier to do.
