What is snot?

Updated on November 29, 2011

The Question!

What is snot? That is the question asked by lmarsh1203. Here is the link if you are interested.

Naturally I'm not a doctor. However, not being a professional, or having any real knowledge of a subject, has never stopped me from answering a question. So let the BS flow through my fingers onto this page.

Boring Definition

According to Wikipedia, Second to only Google in answers, "Snot is slang for nasal mucus or dried nasal mucus".

From my research different color snot means different things.

Bacteria are usually to blame for green snot, but you may also see the color change to green from irritants like smoke or pollution.

If your snot is yellow, you may have a problem. Yellow mucus often signifies something damaged up in nose-land. You may have a sinus infection or something worse.

White mucus can be caused by certain dairy foods. If you are experiencing congestion and pressure in your sinuses and drink milk, you may see your mucus turn white.

If your boogers are clear, you're in good shape. Clear is the natural, healthy color of your mucus.


What To Do With Your Snot

If your nose is running or you are stuffed up, you might be wondering what to do with all this snot? I'm going to reveal my super secret list of what I do with mine.

Make Play Doh

Just collect enough snot for you to use as Play Doh. Let it sit for awhile until it dries out and gets the proper consistency. Then you can mold and shape your masterpieces.

Here's a helpful hint. Collect snot from sick fiends and family to make a greater quantity of Play Doh snot.

Hammer And Chisel

Like to make a statue? Collect the snot and put it into one big glob. Let it sit out until it hardens. Now you can chisel whatever you want. Don't make a big nose. It's too obvious and not the least bit funny.

Color Wheel

Do some research. Separate your snot into different colors. Try mixing them together to see what colors are formed. This will help you as you use snot in your artistic endeavors

Snot Fight

Who hasn't flung a booger at someone? Well, why not make an organized event? Have yourself a snot battle. Have winners and give out awards. You might want to have different groups. Hard snot group, squishy snot group. For the hard group you could shoot the snot out of straws. Let your imagination run wild.

Eat It

Like flinging boogers, we all have eaten snot before. You may not remember doing it, but I bet you did as a small child. Well, you might as well make use of that experience. Save your snot as a food source for the end of the world in 2012. It lasts forever. How many times have you found boogers under the school desk. Trust me those are old boogers.

You could write a review for a food site online. I'm sure different colors of snot all have a unique taste. Let the public know which color you find most enjoyable.

Create some recipes using snot. Publish a book or just use this site to pass on your creations. Who knows you may become the Rachel Ray of snot.

Booger Jokes

What's the difference between boogers and broccoli? Kids don't eat broccoli!

How do you get a hanky to dance? Put a little boogie in it.

What is another name for a snail?
A booger with a crash helmet.

Yo mamas so fat she sat on a quarter and a booger shot out of George Washington's nose!

My Job Is Done

This is the end. I've answered the question and provided you with bonus material. Go ahead and steal my ideas on using snot. I hope you make tons of money as well as total bliss.

Till the next question that peaks my interest, See Ya!
