September 6 - International Nose Pickers Day

On this day, Sept. 6, 1776, Founding Father Benjamin Franklin, author of "A stitch in time saves nine", topped himself with, "You can pick your friends and you can pick your nose, but you cannot pick your friend's nose."

That's right, ol' Ben was wise in the ways of nostril mining. He also invented the world's first Press On nail. (Guess what he used it for?) Scientist that he was, he proved that booger fishing improves blood flow to the brain, increasing the IQ by up to 50 points. And as a diplomat, Franklin put the snot in "snotty French people."

So celebrate your international heritage today! Flick one at the car in the next lane, smear one under a co-worker's desk, or feed your inner child and eat it yourself.

My brothers and I have a story about "Herman the Flying Booger" that leaves us in stitches every time we tell it. Yes, it's a family thing, but what a way to bond....

Welcome, Rick - nicely done!
