You never know who could be watching you while you're doing something totally gross, like picking your nose or squeezing your blackheads. That is, of course, unless you are a high(ish)-profile politician who is used to attending meetings in which TV cameras are positioned all over the room. Then there is no excuse for your disgusting behavior.
Clearly, Congressman Joe Garcia from Florida did not get this message because he was recently caught on video picking his ear and then eating it. Wait, people actually do that? Of course, the footage quickly went viral and now it will be impossible for this man's colleagues to shake his hand without thinking, ew, I know where those fingers have been.
What was he thinking?!
