i though it was just buppy?

have you heard of the flappy snarly?
its a bit of dried snot hanging close to the entrance of your nostril, that flaps in and out when you breathe.

what would you call the piece of popcorn shell stuck in your teeth?

ETA: You may also enjoy a "new" word every day by subscribing to http://dictionary.reference.com/wordoftheday/. Today's word is "JOBBERY", derived from job and robbery, with a relevant Mark Twain quote thrown in for good measure!

counterphenomenological resistentialism
… holds that les choses sont contre nous (things are against us).5 Resistentialism is the belief that inanimate objects have a natural antipathy towards humans, and therefore it is not people who control things but things that increasingly control people.
