want to see a tissue dance?

mona-lisa-picking-nose

Put a little boogie in it!  Ha-that one will never get old.  Unless, of course, you pick your nose so much that you bleed to death.  Which is exactly what happened to Ian Bothwell who passed away in September at the age of 63 as a result of too much nose-picking.  I imagine that booger jokes lose their appeal at that point–for a variety of reasons.

The Manchester, England coroner who examined Bothwell determined that, “”There is no explanation for this death other than he died from a nose-bleed, consistent with picking his nose. I do not think for a moment he knew what he was doing was going to cause his death.”  According to the UK Telegraph, the death was recorded as a “misadventure.” 

I have to lay off the snark a little here because it’s actually quite a sad story.  Poor Ian Bothwell fell into a life of alcoholism after suffering a brain hemorrhagewhen he was 20.  He couldn’t keep a job and had only one living relative, a sister who he had only seen once in 30 years.  And then . . . he died from picking his nose.  So let’s all do Ian Bothwell a favor.  Let’s learn from his mistake and memorialize him by blowing more often than not.  If you absolutely cannot fight the urge then please, pick with caution–it could be a matter of life and death.

    Nose bleeds are mostly caused by too much heat. Most of the time it can be remedied by cold compress. `,.”;
