Let there be snot light

Why would anyone want to insert a live wire of 220V through his nose, bring it out through his mouth and light a bulb?

And also, why would the same man plan to take it further, thus:
I will lift two table fans with my eyelids and then connect wires through my nose and my mouth and light up a bulb.
Answer: to get into the Limca Book of Records. Indeed, the second instance -- the extended trick -- is an attempt to get into the Guinness Book of World Records, where criteria for inclusion seem to be stricter.

I'm overflowing with pride at the achievements of my countrymen. Someone please attach a bulb to me, or it will be wasted.
