Nose snob screw

A small foam screw to push up your nose

What do you think of this:

Forget about picking your nose for boogers and use a nose-picking screw.

It would have to be motorised. Possibly be best suited as an attatchment to one of those AA hand-held fans.

The screw could be made of a soft(ish) foam screw, which could even be wetted for the dry hard ones.

Sounds disgusting, but I feel nose picking is a long neglected bodily function!

       Not neglected in this category. (I love the fact that the header category is 'science').   

       Presumably rotational speed would be quite slow?

       Also suitable for ear cleaning...

       You'll need two speeds: insertion and removal.

       [Voice] maybe you would reverse for removal...

       It should be pedal-powered.

       I would buy one in a heart beat. Might I suggest that the foam screws be disposable, though?   

       Not that I care. I could just as easily wash and reuse, but if you want this to sell in the states, it's going to have to have a disposable head. It's all the rage right now ... that and being earth friendly ...

       What about those dangly ones? I suggest a vacuum head that continually sweeps the air from under the brush, you know to catch all that... you know... all those..   

       hhehe..   

       all that stu....   

       AHHhhh!! Gross! +

       Disgusting and yet I want one. Or a pack of disposables.

       Think I should put a patent on this?   

       Am I looking at becoming the next Howard Hughes?   

       Instead of drilling for Oil, I'll make money from drilling for boogers.
GarJE, Jul 12 2008
  

       Some people think it's funny but...   

       2 bogies shy of a happy meal surely.

       Wait, this idea has nothing to do with automatically turning up your nose at people? I'm disappointed.

       Will there be a left hand drive model?
