HOLLYWOOD – Brad Pitt does it. Ethan Hawke, Matt Damon and Carey Mulligan do it. They’re all doing it. The new craze that is sweeping Hollywood, second only to smoking heroin as the favored past time of the stars: picking your nose and eating it.
The Studio Exec of course was the first to uncover this unhygienic and – doctor’s say – possibly fatal recreational activity when we broke the story of Zac Efron’s nose picking antics. Since then our metaphorical postbag has been bulging with evidence that the practice is more widespread than previously feared.
Resident nasal hygienist Xavier Poulis commented:
It is very easy. First it starts with the occasional scratching of the nostril rim. Then a star might think ‘I’ll have a harmless rummage’, possibly followed by some flicking of nasal mined matter. But once that finger goes from nose to mouth and the salty devil’s green is chewed… That’s Game Over, I’m afraid.
However, it isn’t all fun. Lindsay Lohan was rushed to hospital last week after she picked her nose clean off.
