Booger Ball

Amos Avery had a very good reason for making a booger ball.
When my daughter Ellen was four I started teasing her that I was saving all of my boogers in a big booger ball. I don’t know why I told her that except that it was fun to watch her make that “grossed-out” face that kids make when they smell something bad or see a squished cat on the road. She always begged to see it so finally I told her that she couldn’t see it now but I would give it to her for her eighteenth birthday. Well, guess what – she’s turning eighteen and I’ve got to come through with a booger ball!

And he did! Not only that, but he photographed the process and posted it with instructions so we can all make our own booger balls. Link -via the Presurfer

What a friggin' riot. And the instructions are even funnier!
I'm home sick with the flu (could be's what I get for bragging about dodging all the previous flus this year) and immediately wondered if I had enough "supply" to make a decent ball!

Ha Ha, I actually did something like this once as a joke.

In high school,I would make some smaller sized fake boogers in art class. Then later in the day I'd leave them on the top of a desk just before I left the room or if I got in early prior to a student showing up to see the reaction.
I did not color them though and sometimes I did add a little spittle to make it look more fresh.

My brother used to save the rubbery adhesive gunk that they use to attach shampoo samples to magazines and stuff like that, and called it his booger collection. His wife made him throw out his collection when they got married.

Boogers and snot are the only things that physically digust me to the point of nausea. I will never recover from this, I really hoped it was fake!

I can stomach poop, pee, roadkill, maggots on rotting things and a host of other foul disgusting things... but the one thing in the world that grosses me right out is boogers. That just about made me vomit all over the school keyboard. I am holding down my gag reflex barely... WHY?!

I just discovered why hits for my story have gone off the charts. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I've added a little update - a note my daughter gave me after she received the ball. Enjoy! -Amos
