You can pick your friends…

…you can pick your nose,

but you can’t pick your friend’s nose
or…can you? [shifty eyes]


Appears like it may be possible after all, Krissi D.



  1. Perhaps this might be an entry into the new “Cute, or Gross?” category?

  2. Ouch. I’ll pick my own nose, thank you very much.

  3. Woof! Can’t decide… Cute? or Gross?… Hmmm…. Thinking….

  4. Ooh, this is the closest I’ve ever come to bleening!

    As for the picture…yeah, I agree with AmyH–that looks like it might hurt! (Though the sheep looks like he’s smiling.)

  5. Hahahaha!! That’s great! I hope the birdie is gentle though. That could hurt.

  6. Cassandra says:

    I’m all for cute, look at the happy faces! A little boogie never hurt anyone (claims backed up by 4-year-olds worldwide)

  7. frau_im_mond says:

    Educational tidbit:
    “The female sheep nose bot fly deposits living larvae (maggots) in the nostrils of sheep. The larvae migrate to the head sinuses and, after development, migrate back down the nasal passages, dropping to the ground where they complete development to the adult form.”

    Now that’s JUST GROSS!

  8. Shouldn’t this also be included in Interspecies Snorgling?

  9. That’s what happens when you don’t have fingers, people.

  10. EWWWW!!!!

  11. have to agree with Amy! A beak up the nose might hurt, but obvy this sheep is all for it!!

  12. The bird is obviously a Ewe, Nose and Throat specialist…

    & covered by the flock’s HMO.

  13. sheepie be smilin’ and thinkin’….”ahhhhhhh, better than decongestants, nose drops, those adhesive strip thingys….”

  14. Awww man, Hobbit said it first….oh wells.


  15. ThreeCatNight says:

    Eeew! Ewe!
    Lamb cooties!
    What’s next — lamb belly lint photos? Have you no decency at all? (must get out the Pepto Bismol; my stomach can’t take it!)

  16. Ewe got a cliffhanger there… GOT IT!

  17. Cutles: That’s what happens when you don’t have fingers, people.

    That made me LOL!!! Sad but true.

  18. Holy Crow!!!

  19. zomg, I had no idea that people remembered this SNL skit! as usual, brilliant referencing, Megsters.

  20. Candace says:

    That was hilarious! Ewe, nose and throat. Ha.

  21. zeldapie says:

    This picture made me sneeze!

    (dang capslock)here’s some sheep, Check it:
    Loves me some sheep!
    As for the crow, where are the nuffers to go on about nasal cruelty and the like?

  23. I’m pretty sure this is a symbiotic relationship, peoples — the sheep gets rid of some parasites, and the crow gets din-din. 🙂

  24. Deanna McDonald says:

    I’m glad I’m not a bird!

  25. what the heck!
    Cow’s eat road kill!
    then crow sticks road kill beak up sheepie nose and….. i threw up a little there. Cant look at the photo again.
    i may lose my pop-tart lunch. weak stomach.

  26. You guys think that maybe the crow is putting something in there, instead of removing?

    Maybe some money. Jewelry. Baby photos. Yknow, valuables.

    Cuz really, who’s gonna look in a sheep’s nose? I won’t. And I’m DESPERATE to steal from crows.


  28. uh…do we have that cute or gross category yet??

  29. Theress says:

    I can hear my Mom’s voice: “Going mining for gold in there? Find anything valuable?”

  30. Hilarious, Angela.
    “And I’m DESPERATE to steal from crows”
    They DO like shiny things…their nests are probably treasure troves. But I think Theress is right. He’s minin in there. For some tasty gold 🙂

  31. Q: cute or groos?
    A: eets gross!

  32. Manda’s comment reminds me of Bob & Doug MacKenzie’s Great White North album.

    “I’m in your nose”
    “Yeah, he’s mining for booger nuggets”

  33. Crow: Mmmmm, sheep boogers. That’s some mighty fine, I said, mighty fine eatin’, chirren!

  34. *stares*

    ew. ew. ew. ew. ew. ew. ew. ew.

    pass the kleenex.

  35. Angela and Trin have the funniest comments I’ve read on CO. nice work!

  36. I’m in ur nose
    stashing mah valubls.

  37. one of my cats has a pink/buff/white(depends on mood) nose. i pick her nose. and then she eats what i take out. of course my other one loves dirty Qtips.

  38. ok pansypoo, oversharing!

  39. That is hilarious!

  40. Theress, that’s what my Gramps used to ask me when I had my index finger in up to the second knuckle: Digging for gold?

    It still makes me cringe.

  41. Leilani says:

    You may find it hard to believe; but birdy beaks, when a bird is allopreening (taking care of someone else’s cooties), are remarkably delicate and gentle tools. My cockatoo can find and remove the smallest piece of lint or fuzz from my hair and never pull a single hair.

  42. Yea but Leilani, we’re talkin about booggers, here?! There’s a whopin big difference btwn fuzz & what he’s minin for in that ther schnozzicle.

    Sheesh. Weird, just weird. (Not that I’m complainin, mind you. A little weirdness once in a while can’t hurt anybody, right? Right?)

  43. Angela, you keel me. And I think you are on to something. Clearly crow is implanting a microchip so his alien overlords can read the sheep’s mind.

  44. CuteAddict says:

    lol Pheas…

    *starts humming X-files theme*

    The pic is hilarious. The sheep is obviously enjoying it. It’s probably ticklish…

  45. Angela, you totally made me snicker out loud. Also, symbiotic relationship, valuables, or no, I’m still voting for the “Cute or Gross” category. Emphasis on the latter.

  46. pupidog says:


  47. I tell ya, that sheep would look 15 years younger if he just go rid of those crow´s feet around his nose.

  48. Everybody now,
    I love Ewe!

    I love Ewe!

    I love Ewe in the morning
    and in the afternoon
    I love you in the evening
    and …
    Hold on you gots somethin in your nose….there!
    …And underneath the Mooooooooooon!
    Ohhhhh Skinamarinkadink
    I love Ewe!

  49. The Honourable Gladys Anstruther says:

    Snot a bad picture.

  50. Hon. G: LMAO that reminds me of a book my daughter read recently.
    “Snot Stew”
    and no, it wasn’t.
    Is Not!
    Is too

  51. Poopy, just noticed I messed up my song!

    *clears throat*
    I love Ewe in the evening…and…hold on Ewe gots somethin in your nose…there
    (and you know the rest)
    everybody now!
    *crickets chirping*

  52. Definitely gross. Way gross.

    I’m not sure this counts as “Interspecies Snorgling…” Snorgle is cuddly and that’s kind of… uh… not.

    [Hehehe. – Ed.]

  53. Too moische, Dale!

  54. They love each other!! the crow is preening the sheep, thus there is snorgling. Of sorts.

  55. Hope nothin’ startles the bird while he’s doin’ his business. That could hurt……

  56. hypereric says:

    I dunno. If I didn’t have fingers, I would prolly welcome the chance for someone to pick my nose without having to pay them for it.

  57. chanpon says:

    Definitely gross. =_=

  58. Kritter says:

    I think our friends at Ugly Overload would appreciate this.

  59. nauseating even if symbiotic!

    Icky-poo with whipped cream and maggots.


  60. hazelnutbunny says:

    “The bird is obviously a Ewe, Nose and Throat specialist…

    & covered by the flock’s HMO.”

    OhMyGosh!!! I am LMAO!!!! That is FUNNY!!!! :O)

  61. meg, i loves yer shifty eyes!

    Tin – hahahahahahahahah! good one!

    man, that sheep looks happy!

  62. i like to pick my friends but not like that!!!

  63. Theresa says:

    Ewe may think it’s gross, but it’s snot! 😛

  64. LOL, Theresa!

    Atleast they’re saving trees by not using Kleenex …

    [shifty eyes]

  65. Furbabies says:

    It’s not gross, it’s nature. They obviously have an agreement. You get lunch and I get rid of my parasites. How can nature be anything but beautiful?

  66. Only a TRUE FRIEND will tell you if you have something hanging out of your nose…a VERY GOOD friend will also eat it!!!???

  67. Brak_Silverbone says:

    Maybe the sheep is getting a nose job??

  68. Thanks for the insights frau_im_mond. Keeping it real on the C.O.

  69. well some one is *cough* close?

  70. Eeewww…. 😛

    Liz….”cows eat roadkill”. They DO?? Aren’t they vegetarians? Dey eats grass ‘n stuff. Well, here’s another good reason why I don’t eat moo cows. Just in case….

  71. she porbably meant crows not cows…cows are vegetarians by nature however, sometimes in this factory farming society we live in they have “things” missed in their feed….

  72. mixed in their feed not missed

    goes off muttering
    *alway proof, even if you’re sure, always proof*

  73. You can pick your friends,
    and you can pick your nose,
    but you can’t wipe your friend on the bottom of the seat.

  74. anomalous4 says:

    musicchick2 sez: “Aren’t they [cows] vegetarians?”

    What? you’ve never seen roadkill turnips? =grin=

    But seriously, cRows have been filmed dropping hard-shelled nuts on the road for cars to run over, then flying down and eating the good parts. Some of ’em have even figured out that if they drop ’em in the crosswalks, they can do their munching while the walk light’s on!

    As for the picture:


  75. You can pick nose and you can pick your friends but you cant oick your friends noses!
