Belly Button Lint

What is belly button lint?

"A mixture of clothing fibers and dead skin is "surfed" into the typical belly button by mid-weight happy trails", suggests Karl Kruszelnicki of the University of Sydney. According to Wired, Mena Suvari and Britney Spears were spared this indignity, as were our Cro-Magnon ancestors. Why? Mena's outie doesn't collect it, Brit's piercing blocks it, and Ogg's thick body hair stopped fuzz migration.
