[dropcap]A[/dropcap] WYNNUM MAN is under the impression that nobody is able to see him while he’s behind the wheel of his car. Unfortunately for 33-year-old stay-at-home son Gilbert Donoghue, he’s not invisible. This morning proved to be full of embarrassment for the former forklift driver as he was caught picking his nose, inspecting what he’d retrieved, before popping in his mouth.
“I don’t give a fuck,” said Mr Donoghue. “People to it all the time. Everyone picks their nose, anybody who tells you otherwise is a liar. I just happened to get caught.”
That’s not all, apparently.
While he said he wouldn’t be willing to tell this to the police, but in addition to picking out an impressive quantity of snot, the booger contained a rich sprinkling of Brisbane brown pseudo-cocaine – which he says gave him a “cheeky mouth high” after spending the previous night on the nosebags.
Picking up from where he left off, Mr Donoghue’s story isn’t dissimilar to other around the country. According to a recent government survey, almost every Australia has been caught picking their nose at some point in their lives.
“It’s a common shame that transcends social class and wealth,” said researcher Holden Makok. “Even your run-of-the-mill smack head knows to keep their fingers out of their nose. It’s a bad look no matter who you are.”
