    From CNN.com:

    *looks down toward navel*

    I'm not sure I wanna know.

    The Belly Button Biodiversity project - WTF? Wonder how many millions were spent on this. Is there a Toe Jam Biodiversity project?

    If there is, I do not want to visit their museum or their wildlife park.

    Your tongue is not an adequate swabbing medium.

    I'm in the clear. No BB since my bowel resection surgery. :p

    I wonder if their research shows that "innies" are dirtier?

    I think that's a given.

    Where do you think navel lint comes from? Certainly not 'outies'. :p

    No one need see the absent BB of a 71-year-old. :eek:

    Although, on the plus side, this might drive many from the "arms" of the church.

    While I was showering this morning, I deliberately washed my belly button thoroughly. It was actually a lot more filthy than I realised!! :eek:


    When I was a kid, my mum would tell me that I shouldn't play with my belly button because it would give me a stomach ache. Well.....great job, mum. Very effective, because I haven't gone anywhere near that thing for as long as I can remember. I never look there, let alone wash it!

    Anyway, I finally washed it (a very strange feeling indeed), and there was brown stuff stuck to the "button", and the skin around it. :eek: Pretty disgusting.

    I clean my belly button every shower. I sometimes even clean it in the bathroom (for obvious privacy reasons) for good measure. I discovered it's icky-ness a long time ago.

    It's like another world in there.

    I'm all for contributing further to the stunning biodiversity of our beautiful planet. Never washing this thing again.

    Save yourself potential future grief, and limit yourself to unknowns in the fridge. :D
