That's so horrifyingly disgusting... Mostly because I can't even imagine what the taste would be :x

I don't know about coal, but hard rock mines occasionally produce the same effect - there's hardly any taste.

HAHAHAHA--but it's SO true! I got to organize the area affectionately known as "the attic" at work one day. I sneezed black for a week from the dust.

My god, I hate sneezing that crap out. It just sends the wrong signals, especially if someone else sees and doesn't understand the situation.

They tend to suspect zombie when I sneeze black gunk, it would seem.

I really like that "clean!" panel. :)

Is anyone else thinking of that mining scene in Zoolander?
"I think I'm getting the Black Lung, Pop. It's not very well ventilated down there."
XD

Well that is also how firefighters are after a long stint in their gear from attacking a blaze. I love firefighting but I io really love the shower afterwards.

This commenting system works so much better! And I ADORE the new forum designs!
Anyway, I love the expression in that last panel!

Correction: I have no word wonderful enough to describe the new forum design. It knocked me off me feet and backward a yard or two.

I wasn't that bad, but I sneezed grey for a long time after organizing the shelves in the Grocery store I used to work in.

On the upside to sneezing out black gunk... at least you got to the tissue on time... Seriously. How often does it really happen that you get to the tissue on time when you have to sneeze. Murphy's Law dictates the opposite, especially in cases of black gunk. *nodnod*. :)

I would make a cannery joke, but I'm not original enough to come up with one.

I do know a great one about coal miners though...

That reminds me of the good times I used to have at raves out in the desert.

"Raver nose" is the price you paid for a night's worth of non-stop dancing revelry, surrounded by nothing but dirt and dust.

I worked at a rubber plant... carbon black coming out of your nose for at least a week after being there. also, they sprayed a lubricating lining inside tires before curing them... the spray went more into me than the tires... i fear for my future health but right now enjoy the super powers.

You just need to spend more time with Renaissance Faire people, especially in the summer. A "proper" Faire has lots of dirt and dust and shade only when the trees (and burlap) feel like it. And if it hasn't rained recently... well, we used to point at each other's tissues or hankies and say, "It's Faire-y dust!" It happened to everyone, and I mean *E*V*E*R*Y*O*N*E*, so we all just kind of got used to it...

Reminds me of whenever I work with charcoal. I'm blowing black dust out of my nose for a long time, must remind myself not to put my face so close to the paper!
