Man Collects His Belly Button Lint For 26 Years

Belly Button Lint

Graham Barker has been collecting his own belly button lint for 26 years, setting the Guinness World Record.

Barker says he “harvests” his crop while waiting for the shower every morning.

Shockingly, he says his revolting hobby was inspired by boredom.

“I noticed the lint in my navel and became curious as to how much of it one person can produce,” he said. “I decided the only way to find out was to collect it for a while and see.”
