Damn, what an odd fellow. (my wife strikes again)
Graham Barker’s Navel Fluff Page
In the beginning…
It was on the 17th of January 1984 that I found myself under-occupied in a youth hostel in Brisbane. The night was steamy and stormy – too wet outside and too hot inside to do very much, and my attention drifted to my belly button. There it was … fluff! I must have seen it before that night, but this occasion was the first time I ever picked it out and wondered about it. I thought if I started collecting it, I’d eventually have enough to stuff a cushion, and so I stored my first piece of navel fluff in an empty film canister. The collection had begun.
Lookee here at what my wife found:
Mutter Museum, Philadelphia. Roadside America The Big Colon
One highlight is a giant colon that looks like a sand worm from Frank Herbert’s Dune � arranged with one end rearing up from the tastefully underlit display. Doctors were applauded for being able to correctly diagnose this whopper a gross enlargement of the colon and not as a tumor � without using X-rays. This digestive distension serves as an inspiration to new generations of doctors, and a warning to those of us who sometimes feel a little backed up.
