This has happened before somewhere else hasn't it? I forgot what they said it was last time.
it has happened for centuries, literally. That kind of stuff is described by Charles Fort numerous times, and i can recall reading old german reports about "Sternenrotz" (star snot) that date back to the 18th century. (If anyone is interested i have to look it up again). Dunno what it actually is, either.

EDIT: i just found an e-book version of the book "Allgemeine Biologie" (common biology) by Paul Kammerer (published in 1915). He rules out frog eggs or any other animal source, claiming that it is a sort of fungus. So, i guess it's not so easy to say "definetly frog eggs"...

Wha?!  LMAO!   Ok, with that advice, I'm sure to never touch anything similar!!  But you're speaking of the ear or nose "hole" right?   Cuz that would be painful and could cause nausea.
