What is a booger made of?

  1. What is a booger made of?


    Its 100 degrees outside so I am bored. And was sitting here wondering what a booger is made out of. So for all of wondering the same here it is HAHAHAHAH




    Main Entry: boog·er
    Pronunciation: /BOO - grr/
    Function: noun
    Etymology: alteration of English dialect buggard, boggart, from 1bug + -ard Date: 1866
    1 : BOGEYMAN
    2 : a piece of dried nasal mucus

    Boogers are mucus (myoo-kuss). Mucus is the thin, slippery material that is found inside your nose. Many people call mucus snot. Your nose makes nearly a cupful of snot every day. Snot is produced by the mucous membranes in the nose, which it moistens and protects.

    When you inhale air through your nose, it contains lots of tiny particles, like dust, dirt, germs, and pollen. If these particles made it all the way to the lungs, the lungs could get damaged and it would be difficult to breathe. Snot works by trapping the particles and keeping them in the nose.

    After these particles get stuck inside the nose, the mucus surrounds them along with some of the tiny hairs inside the nose called cilia. The mucus dries around the particles. When the particles and dried-out mucus clump together, you're left with a booger!

    Boogers can be squishy and slimy or tough and crumbly. In fact, boogers are a sign that your nose is working properly.
