I received, for Christmas, some Bonkin' Booger Ball plushy toys, as
gag gift, that doubled as my main gift. This is a running joke
between myself and Ms. Christ, since we heard that some scientist

A bakery that advertises baked boogers for lonely people might

Play with them in our associated maker space where we have
dough 3D printers.
Booger Bakery will actually bake or let you bake and play with real
bread dough, but the theme and advertising will state that you are
eating and playing with boogers. Pretty gross, but that's what
invention is: outside strategies for diversifying your microbiome.
