Powdered artificial mucus

Rheology!

Mucus is useful stuff. The body generates it to trap and move particles. But is mucus really optimal for its use? It is what evolution has provided us, but can we do better with some intelligent design?

BUNGCO says yes! Putting the art back in artificial, Powdered Artificial Mucus is a synthetic, non microbe-supporting powder (thus the name) intended to be inhaled, ingested, inserted or otherwise applied to all the places your body already has mucus. The PAM will rehydrated in place, and then outdo your own possibly mutant and ineffective mucus in a bionic tour de force. Expel those bong hit remnants and airway colonists! Clear your sinuses! Conceive that baby! And you will come back for more, because you will miss it when its gone.

Available in strawberry, dill and mince.

       I can always hoark the biggest loogies after guzzling a glass of milk, ad often a McD's milkshake.

       Thank you for that colorful and altogether disgusting annotation. As for the idea, I think it needs to come in fluid form. We don't want our membranes insta- dehydrated...

       I thought it was relevant because those substances somehow generate loogies.

       I discovered some time ago that mucus makes an excellent cutting lubricant for copper. In the privacy of my own workshop, this is fine, but I could never work out how to commercialise the principal.   

       Perhaps this is the answer.   

       Is the synthetic product cheaper than employing child labour in the far east to fill the jars?

       PAM is already available in a spray can (link).

Assuming you didn't mean the head of an educational establishment (that would be a pricey commodity), you could perhaps gainfully employ people from what my employers describe as "emerging markets" to contribute their secretions.

       Strawberry and dill scent sounds nice. Not so sure about mice.

       We thought that the HB had plumbed the depths with <link>.   

       Of course, we were wrong.   

       Humans are very odd.
