Booger #F0091: "Seahorses in Love"

I like this booger a lot, or should I say boogers? They look like happy seahorses playing in the ocean because they love each other!

Door Booger Says: Seldom does a boogerologist see two individual boogers formed so alike, in color, shape, and consistency. What a remarkable discovery!

Pick of the Week: Booger # C0104: "Fetus"

I call this booger "Fetus" because it reminds me of a fertilized baby in the tummy. If I knew what stems cells look like I bet they would look like this.

Dr Booger Says: What a runny booger! Note the swirling nebula, air bubbles, and rounded shape. The swirl of blood almost looks like veins, doesn't it?

Booger #A0018: "Rocky"

I call this booger "Rocky" because it looks like the rocky mountains or a rock monster from the river. It has many parts that stick out.

Dr. Booger Says: This is an odd shape for a booger, but not unheard of. It has three tips pointing in three different directions. These types of formations usually form during the picking process, in which multiple boogers collapse and become embedded in each other.

Booger #A0023: "Raspberry"

I call this booger "Raspberry" because of the deep rich red patch of blood looks ripe like fresh Hi-C juice.

Dr Booger Says: This is a fairly bloody booger. The blood has no dark spots and is clearly fresh. People often blame nose-pickers for booger-blood, saying that it is caused by fingernails abrading the mucus membrane. In truth, the membrane is covered with tiny veins that often dilate and leak small amounts of blood for all sorts of reasons.

Booger # A0001: "Flibnabber"

I call this booger the "Flibnabber" because it has a long flibby part that looks like it could stretch out and nab you. One side is fresh and clean and still bubbly, but the other end is old and dry. The complete spectrum of one booger!

Dr Booger Says: I agree with the above statement. This booger shows the complete spectrum, from the clear liquid mucus on one end to the dried-out crust on the other. It is interesting to see the swirling cloud pattern of impurities dissolving into the clear mucus.

Booger # A0002 "Rip Torn"

I call this booger Rip Torn because it looks like it has a gash in it. I will pretend that he is a rough and tumble booger that has been in fights before like the actor he is named after!

Dr. Booger Says: Open vein of blood on the surface. Outer layer is fluid mucus, milky white. Consistency of center unknown. Yellow tones suggest oxidization.

Pick of the Week: Booger #C0203 "Booger Party"

I call this picture "Booger party" because all the different boogers are gathered together for a happy time.

Dr Booger Says: Three main sections of crystallized booger interconnected by a shared body of clear mucus. Visible fluid inclusions: blood; air. Nose hair preserved in booger crystals. Coloration ranges from clear to yellowish-brown.
