What Is It?


Guess what's in the jars. Hint it is a Guinness Book record. Answer in extended.(no fair blowing up the picture to read the labels)
It is Graham Barker's record making 22.1 gram collection of belly button lint. The 45 year old librarian has been collecting the stuff for 26 years. What ever happened to collecting stamps?

Sorry, Patty, it's well after coffee here in the land of financial ruin. This, however, wouldn't go too far in grossing me out as my best bud's dad used to ask people he'd just met to save their BBFuzz as he was making a pillow!

And, I guessed correctly. I figured it was either BBFuzz or gallstones.

I KNEW librarians were "picky", but picking your own navel lint and then SAVING it? Now I know why I have so much trouble getting MY librarian to weed the collection... They save EVERYTHING.

I wonder whether he used Dewey or Library of Congress to catalog it?

How do they prove it all came from a navel? Did it all have to come from the same navel?

Considering how strict they are about validating certain records, I hope this isn't allowed without very thorough documentation, otherwise Guinness might sully its name...

I'm sure they used fuzzy logic to prove the authenticity of the stuff.

ah expat, i should have known you would be much too worldly and experienced to be impressed by this! 😉
hey js! it all came from HIS navel. everyday for the last 26 years, while he waits for the water to warm up for his shower, f he cleans out his navel lint and puts it in a clay pot he has for just that purpose. At the end of the year he puts that year's fuzz in a jar and labels it. (which i assume is in chronological order kenneth) :cheese:

I can understand the red from a red shirt, it's the green jar that bothers me.

I was close but was thrown off by the Copyright notice and assumed it was Soylent Bellybutton Lint. "It's people! Soylent Bellybutton Lint is made out of people!"
