Why I Love Baby Gays


Oh, how I love this invention! 

Oh, the misery of life, if I didn't own theses!

This awesome little product was invented in the 1920's by a man named Leo Gerstenzang. He stuck wads of  cotton on toothpicks and called them "Baby Gays". Please don't ask me, I haven't a clue.

And before you even ask. Yes, I live dangerously. I clean my ears with them. Yeah, I know, whatever!

But, this is not the reason I love Baby Gays. I swear to G O D I will never call them Q-tips again, for as long as I live!

Since moving to Colorado, I have had a major annoyance. No, not my job.

Moving to Colorado has given me a major case of the

Speaking of gross, as if that thought hasn't crossed your mind. Let me just tell you this.

I have to twirl the Baby Gay around my nostril until it catches the offending booger, then I twist the Baby Gay around and around so the booger wraps around it. Kinda, something like this.

Yep, I knew you would look via
Just be glad I didn't choose one with a dab of tomato sauce on it. 

Anywhoo.... I use the Baby Gays twice a day. And I am happily booger free!



  1. Try a bit of vaseline on the tip of that Baby Gay. It will keep your nose from drying out so much in the low humidity, so those nasty boogers don't have a good surface to cling to.

    1. Baby Gays! Isn't that a hoot!! I will try your Vaseline trick. Thanks for the tip!

  2. I just about spit my iced tea all over my monitor, TOO funny!!!

    1. That is about the greatest compliment I could receive! Thanks 1st Man!
