Couldn't not not share the pain, double negatives be damned.

Oh, thank you. I would have missed this if you hadn't pointed it out.


Bastard! *vomits into filthy toilet* Toenail clipping crisps- smegma 'n' dandruff pierogis with a frothy Cool Whip topping-- Scab-Batticals, the Lunchables for divinity students.... I hate you, Milkman Loquacious.

Having athlete's foot is a negative. Eating it is a double negative.

But what of the triple-distilled variety? Those are hard to parse without a lime.

Whatever — the grossest thing is people who bite their nails.

Wow. The word "grossest" looks really weird in print...
posted by Brittanie at 3:34 AM on January 10, 2007


I didn't really think this was all that gross, but then I guess that just makes me gross.

I think you just achieved the verbal equalivalent of tubgirling/lemonpartying/goatsecxing us all.

My vomit filled hat is off to you, loquacious.

Why? Is he outing himself as the anonymous Asker? I just don't understand you young people any more.

Nah. The guy whose girlfriend wanted him to take a dump on her, mainly the ensuing vivid discussion of textures and content and positions, was worse.

Yuck. I saw this on AskMe yesterday and didn't open it because I knew it wasn't going to be pretty. Now I've opened it and, since I can read a lot of text at a glance, have almost read it. THANKS A LOT, LOQUACIOUS.

BLAST HER.

I haven't even clicked it yet and I'm laughing.

But anyway, I'll be the judge of what's gross around here.
posted by Brittanie at 5:12 AM on January 10, 2007


Straightener, thanks for reminding me of that classy comment. Now I'm pissing myself at work where everyone is supposed to be serious and stressed out.
posted by slimepuppy at 5:17 AM on January 10, 2007


What slimepuppy said.

Otherwise, I dunno. It isn't my cup of tea, but neither posts in question have me writhing in horror.
posted by Brittanie at 5:18 AM on January 10, 2007


The one that did, though, was the guy asking about the small pin-sized hole in his head, by his ear — the one he stuck an unfolded paper clip into.
posted by Brittanie at 5:19 AM on January 10, 2007


....and there was white gunk in there, right? Bleah. To think I'd just managed to forget that one. Thanks Brittanie.

There's probably an Secreto-phagia fetish community on the internet waiting for him. Although, if they had a meetup, I'd be really scared of the buffet.

Where is that paperclip one? I remember laughing at someone suggesting it was the reset button.

I was going to say not even close but that was a front page post not AskMe Question.

Ugh, Mitheral, why?

In that thread, someone says "i'm going to go look at pictures of bunnies now", and links to Google Image Search for bunnies. Amusingly, on first page of results, there's a cartoon of a worm busting Alien-style out of someone's chest. What do you do when even Google wants to make you vomit?

I have a hole in my head.

Reminds me of the Steven King story, Survivor Type, possibly the most horrifying thing I've ever read.

Until that thread, of course.

This is the only post that ever made me almost throw up. Though the worms from the butt picture was close.

Dear AskMe, I like to chew on worms that fall out of my anus when pooping on my girlfriend. Is this weird?

Ps. THERE ARE WORMS IN MY HEAD-HOLE.

I sound like a candy ass here (and I love your contributions, loquacious, I really do), but it seems a bit insensitive to make fun of anonymous question-askers, even if their questions are stupendously gross. But the subjects are usually embarrassing enough as they are--why the extra shaming? These are fellow mefites, after all--if you prick them (or peel off their toe caluses, as the case may be) do they not bleed?

I'm being overly sensitive. OK, you can all line up to give me melvins now.

Great, I'm laughing out loud at work and no one understands why the thought of "Metafilter: There are worms in my head-hole." made me spit tea all over my monitor.

Worth repeating:

cuticles- fine. delicious and entertaining.
blisters and calluses from hands- acceptable.
nails- grosser, but ok. i do it sometimes.
boogers- gross for adults, understandable for kids, mmm, salty. i won't hold it against that quarterback.
nose hairs- a necessary evil if you allow boogers. not worth looking for, but not problematic.
eye gunk- has no taste, i see no point, but, ok.
earwax- gross, that stuff is bitter.
scab- bordeline grossing me out. too crunchy.
anything off your feet- eeeeew gross gross gross. toe cheese? oh HELL no.

Which since you were all so kind as to distill that AskMe and the other contenders into summaries of the grossest AskMe's ever, makes this - *drum roll* - the grossest MeTa ever!

Yeah, see, that's why I posted this. I knew someone would try to one-up me, and that they'd probably succeed.
posted by loquacious at 12:20 PM on January 10, 2007


Except now I've just spent almost an hour poking and prodding my head with a paper clip looking for a reset button. I know it's here somewhere. Probably right next to the "turbo" button. Hey!! BRB.

I'm guessing someone with that problem would have really bad breath.

Is this really the best way to start that comment, given the context?..
posted by clevershark at 3:20 PM on January 10, 2007


Sounds like a programmer.

Years ago we had a bunch of ASP programmers work out of our small Tokyo office. They guzzled coke and subsisted on Japanese McDonalds for 4 weeks, spent all their time at Electric City and only washed periodically. Nice enough guys. Several days after they'd left, I needed to use one of their workstations. On sitting down I felt around for the height adjustment lever beneath the seat, but instead grabbed 4 weeks worth of nostril excreta like stalagtites, caked about the underside of the chair.

There is something particularly unpleasant about crusty snot - especially when it's not yours. I think this guy is doing everyone a service by eating his.
