you know that you're not supposed to use q-tips for that. there's two cranial nerves in there that supply sensation to the oral cavity.

lol at cutiepiebg^ then how do you clean your ears?!??? I don't know about you, but I usually get watery eyes or my nose is all twitchy and I feel like the need to sneeze, it's just like when you sneeze you close your eyes, same with the q-tips... It's just a reaction:)

That's the procedure to check for ear hernias. Stick a Q-tip in your ear and cough.

Yeah, you better turn your head so you don't spit on the bathroom mirror when you cough.
