An “Electronic Nosepicker!” What The Friday?!?! The Safe Way To Dig Into Your Nose! My Wildest Tokyo Shopping Adventures!

We are in VERY SERIOUS TIMES right now. Rightly so. Still, it’s Friday, so I have this question:

Have you been hesitant to pick your nose in these trying pandemic times?

Well, here’s the answer, and the terrific Reporters at have it!

“What The Friday!?!?!?”

This terrific website always has something new and hilarious! This time, SoraNews24 Reporter Masanuki Sunakoma wondered about the best way to successfully pick his nose while at the same time keeping his hands clean and preventing any Covid-19 infection.

That led the intrepid Repoter to “The Nose Picker”, which touts itself this way:

“what you have always wanted and needed“. The “finger” automatically spins to “manually clear your nasal passage of unwanted blockages”.

These photos come from, and they also have video of Sunakoma’s hilariously failed attempt to use the device…click on the link here to see it all and enjoy!

Turns out there are many of them on the market, all promising the same thing: a finger-free nose cleaning!

I love gadgets from Japan, like the time I bought an electronic cockroach in Tokyo:

I also found this incredible iPhone cover in Tokyo:

Yep, it’s a “bacon and egg” iPhone cover, just one of many I have purchased in Tokyo!

Yes, you can buy plasticized food in Tokyo, and so I did! See our shopping spree here:

  1. I can always rely on you to make me smile, John…I can think of a couple of people who would appreciate one in their Xmas stocking…if we get a second wave of infections it could well be serious by Christmas…

  4. I can live without an electronic cockroach, but that nose picker would be loved by small children. They should make a ‘junior’ version! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  6. What an interesting idea, John. I can’t imagine those taking off in the UK [smile].
