Wait, what was the first reason again?

Paul in San Diego says this note showed up above both urinals at his office last week.

If you are not the person in the picture then you are not allowed to pick your nose and then put your freshly picked booger on the wall. And another reason for not wiping boogers on this wall is because it is disgusting.

    THE SECOND PARAGRAPH IS MY FAVORITE. IT IS AN AFTERTHOUGHT OF PURE GENIUS.

    ANOTHER REASON I LIKE IT IS THE CAPITAL LETTERS.

    Why does the little kid in the picture get a free pass to wipe his boogers on the wall?

    paper is much easier to wipe a booger on than painted cinderblock. this poster would be a goner with my allergies the way they are.

    Why does the child pictured on the sign get special treatment? Are his boogies better than the rest? Do they have magical cleansing powers?

    People should just rub them between their fingers and flick them on the floor like I do….

    My sister in-law recently discovered my nephew and a friend wiping bogies on the wall behind the sofa while they watched TV. She told them if they hadn’t a handkerchief to wipe them on it would be more hygenic, not to mention, pleasant for everyone if they just ate them.

    Cheers

    The kid gets a special pass because he’s never actually going to make an appearance in that particular bathroom.

    At least I should hope.

    How do they know those are boogers pasted on the wall? If so, couldn’t a simple DNA analysis solve all of their troubles?

    Maybe the picture is of the sign’s author as a young child?

    Does the “it” in the last paragraph refer to the wall? A little vague…

    my friend had an orange velvet recliner in the living room when he was growing up where his extremely overweight brother used to sit.

    when they went to move it after about a decade, they found layers and layers crusty boogers on the back of it.

    I say, anytime you get the chance to tag one of your entries with “nose-picking” … GO FOR IT!!!

    I’ve never been much of a wiper. I’m more of a flicker slash launcher myself.

    I like how the note seems to apply only to “freshly picked” boogers. Like, if you’ve been storing boogers in a humidor, feel free to bring those in and do a variation of Van Gogh’s Starry Night.

    Helvetica, HA! My sister wiped her boogers on the wall of her childhood room. When I went to college, she moved in to my booger-free room, while I was forced to store my belongings (that wouldn’t fit in the dorm) in her boogie-gold painted room. Gross.

    I chaperoned a field trip for my son’s “summer camp”–a group of 5 year olds that start Kindergarten this coming school year. Two of the kids in the van were picking their noses, but they had the good sense to eat the findings rather than share them with the next riders.

    Geez. I thought the booger picking/wiping it on the wall was exclusive to the Ragstock warehouse in Minneapolis. Glad to know it is something that goes on everywhere!

    Why is ‘this wall’ specified in the last paragraph? Is it ok to boogerize other walls?

    And another reason could be it’s ok to wipe other things on this wall (although, this sign being in a bathroom, it’s not a pretty mental image).

    Someone does this in one of the bathroom stalls where I work. It’s quite puzzling since there is toilet paper right there to wipe it on and disgusting because, well, it’s just disgusting.
