But it's doctor's orders!

(Thanks to many people, none of whom we wish to shake hands with)

I can see the market opening now. Booger vitamins.

Hallelujah! Justification at last.

In the words of Dave ... KEY QUOTE:

"I would recommend a new approach where children are encouraged to pick their nose. It is a completely natural response..."

It IS?!??!???

It's really funny when someone picks their nose and they don't think that anyones watching.

Has anybody done any research to check out this "top doctor." Top of what?

Correction: "They think it's candy but it'snot."

I know, sad that I remember that.

hahaha... nice rhyme!

I believe that the last line is

"But really its snot"

Not to get, well, picky.

Sorry, didn't refresh and see that one had already been done.

Punky, you already lost your breakfast. In the interests of your health, I think you might try to hang on to lunch.

When I was in third grade my teacher told me I should only pick my nose if I was going to pick enough to share.
At the time I thought he was just embarassing me for a laugh. Now I know he was actually concerned with the immunodeficencies of the class.

If the next blog post is about toe jam, i'm leaving for good!

I knew I didn't have to stop my deplorable habit.

I wonder if those of us (and us knows who us are) who regularly pick other (read: "lower") areas will be benefitted by some sort of miracle weight loss, or perhaps a cure for baldness; we'll have to ask the doc.

"With a finger you can get to places you just can't reach with a handkerchief." Gee, Doc, thanks for that lovely image. Doctor of What?

This still leaves the dilemma of what to do with all those klingons sitting on your desk at the end of a busy day?

Public Service Blog Announcement

It has recently come to my attention that "Blogchik" carries more of the meaning that I was originally going for with "Blognik." Plus, it has the added meaning of "Blog Chick," which I like, and which is accurate. Therefore, I am changing my nickname to "Blogchik" for the purposes of this blog.

This has been a Public Service Blog Announcement. Please return to your regularly scheduled wisecracking.

...or on second thought, maybe not. Opinions of the peanut gallery?

`Blogchicknik' isn't that a Ukrainian cabbage fritter?

Look, Mommy! Treasure!

That doctor thinks he's hot snot on fine china, but really he's just a cold booger on a paper plate.

Wow, the kids I grew up with must have had some GREAT immune systems.

No wonder mine has always been about as good as that boy in a bubble.

ew ew ew ew ew. I STILL think my weird cousin is nuts, I don't care what this supposed expert thinks.

I always wondered why people were so disgusted with the thought of picking one's nose.

Mucous lines much of your respiratory tract: your sinuses, your lungs, etc. It's there to catch dust and germs and other foreign materials from getting into the sensitive tissue of your respiratory system. After it's been there a while, cilia (think little tails) whip back and forth, pushing the mucous up from the lungs and into the back of your mouth, at which point you either spit it out or (more frequently) simply unconciously swallow it down. Your stomach digests it, and you make more mucous to replace it. So, really, it doesn't matter whether you pick your nose or not: it all ends up in the same place anyway!

The Bob: Well, it wasn't the NEXT post, it was the next post after that ("dumber than toe dirt.") So I guess you can stay.

You can pick your friends. You can pick your nose. But you can't pick your friends' noses.

I knew it! But they laughed at me!

Anyway, as long as you wash your hands, it's okay, right?

Hey, I heard a little song about nose picking on the radio the other day, but can't remember the words. Now my kids think I'm nuts, because I can only remember a few key words. I think it's the same one that A Rhyme from Younger Times wrote, but is that the whole thing? Anyone know??
