About a week or so ago, my friend, Ron opened up his comments section for readers to ask him questions. Any question.
Well, being the 12 year old boy (mentally, inside) that I am, I asked if he would eat a booger for $100. His answer was basically, "No, but maybe if you added a few zeroes."
Now, I, for one, do not think $100 is just chump change. Sure, it's not a lot. It's not a fortune. But, it's $100 clams more than I had a minute ago, right?
Here's the way I look at it: Yes, it is gross and no, I wouldn't just do it on a whim, but how many times in life has "sinus drainage" been mentioned. Oh, my sinuses are draining really bad, so my throat hurts. I have a sinus infection!
Let's take a closer look at this: "sinus drainage" is just a nicer way of saying "liquid boogers" or more well known as "snot".
It goes right on down your gullet while you sleep, while you work and try to stifle a runny nose, when the pressure behind your nose is killing you and you just have to try to relieve that pressure.
Sure, it could turn into a "loogie", but that's even nastier than the behind the scenes "sinus drainage".
So, yeah, I'd eat a booger for $100. But, I would make sure there was no photographic or video evidence of the dare, where it might end up on YouTube.
This poor dood didn't even get a hundred bucks:
But, he DID gain instant fame by eating a booger and being featured on the Jumbotron! Woot!
And, in the spirit of things, I'm also going to open the floor for questions. Ask me anything - I promise to answer honestly. I'll answer in order received. As usual, if you'd like to ask anonymously or email me, you can do that at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll keep your identity under wraps.
