    Looks a little higher than his belly button from the picture….did you Snopes that fact?

      The picture is a DRAMATIZATION, as evidenced by the subsequent singing and dancing. Actual egress is typically lower in the abdomen.

      So does a belly button piercing counter-act this phenomenon? Kind of like the tin foil hats counter-act their psionic abilities?

      • Dan

        Is it an effective counteragent? No. Kind of like the tin foil hats.

      • Choob

        Crap! That was a waste of $75…

      • Dan

        For a tin foil hat? Yeah, man. You got ripped off.

        I should have known that making it yourself would be cheaper. http://www.stopabductions.com/
