    I guess that could lead to questions such as "Would you like your groceries in paper or hagfish slime?" It would be interesting to note the people's reactions.

    I doubt people will want to put hagfish slime in their hair... unless we are already doing it and arent being told

    Anyone willing to eat a hotdog should be willing to do most anything with hagfish slime.
