Bellybutton fluff

How does bellybutton fluff work?

Where on earth does it come from?

There seems to be never-ending bits of it coming from my bellybutton. Every time I check there’s another bit.

Can it be harnessed somehow? I wonder if it generates emissions when burnt. If not, it could almost be a limitless source of power.

I was hoping it could be harnessed. I’ve been married for nearly 15 years and I was hoping to have been presented with a jumper knitted from the lint I have discarded over the past 15 years on our 15th anniversary. Apparently it’s not going to happen!

On a related note, I remember one evening in the bathroom showing my days toil to my wife and her being unimpressed. As she yawned and had a stretch I held it near her nose. As she inhaled, up went the fluff! That was hours of ROFL right there.

Some bizarre male creature appeared on Collectors recently with his overly large collection of jars of belly button fluff.
I left the room and waited till the segment was over, there’s only so much tripe I can stomach.

Jayne if it is the person that I mentioned in the first readers comment (the web link) he is quite normal and not bizarre.
