Having recently revealed the pleasure Bro. Russell took in scrubbing the toilet of former BYU President and current member of the Quorum of the Seventy Merrill J. Bateman, Bro. Russell kindly provided this website with a list of other activities of which he is justly proud.
He has collected:
- the eye grit from the eyes of Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin (he keeps it in a mason jar on his bathroom counter).
- the shaven back hair of Elder Jeffrey R. Holland (he has woven it into a dreamcatcher that hangs over his bed).
- the hairy soupy circle from the shower of President Cecil O. Samuelson, current president of BYU (he keeps it in the glove compartment of his car)
- and, the remnants of a half-eaten cantaloupe that touched the lips of President Thomas S. Monson (to be sold on Deseret Book Auctions when you-know-what happens)
We at theironicpriesthood applaud Bro. Russell’s devotion to the very personal and hygienic habits of our church’s leaders. After all, our leaders are not infallible. At long last, thanks to Bro. Russell’s dedication, we will soon be able to learn if, in fact, their…uh…offal…doesn’t stink.
