People tattoo, pierce, and otherwise display their bellybuttons. But what if it served a purpose beyond its original biological one?
Reddit user Pretigee asked for people to contemplate their navels and answer:
If your belly button was a real working button, when you touched it, what would it do?
Here are some of the most creative responses.
Netflix & Chill
Turn on free WiFi. Eulerich
Queen for A Day
It would play the chorus from 'Living On My Own' by Freddie Mercury on every device within a four mile radius. magicbullets
Increase my immune system and reset me to an athletic build. Macular_Patdown
It would open a task manager for everything that is going on in your body right now. If you wanted to, you could shut down your digestive system. PyroPunk
Ring a bell, cause you know, Bell-y-Button.
I'll show myself out. Huomenna
Used for cheat codes - press it the right number of times with the right timing and you can fly or run super fast etc.... or you're the idiot poking his belly button while everyone else has superhero powers. turbanator26
Make my bow tie spin. HacksawJimDGN
Disable sound. Touch again = re-enable sound. Great when you want to focus on studying or when someone's being annoying and you wanna mute them. The_Godlike_Zeus
An on/off button for your erection (we'll call it a hard-on/off button) would be extremely useful. No more embarrassing moments when you're sitting in the hot tub with your family on vacation! way_fairer
I think it'd be a digestion aid. Like, you'd be really full, then you press your belly button and it digests everything immediately. Kinda like that thing inside of sinks which eats all the waste food and stuff. samaroni1
It's a Gas
It would be a fart blocker. When you feel the urge and discomfort of a fart coming along, you push the button and it magically releases the built up air. No smell either! mr_bendetti
Switch genders: boy-girl-boy-girl-boy-girl... NESoteric
Roll the Dice
+10 to all stats for 2 minutes. Cooldown is 24 hours. kjoro
First, a radio voice in my stomach would count down from 10, and once the countdown hits 0, confetti pops out of my mouth. [deleted]
It May Not Grow on Trees...
Every time I press it, a dollar bill, legal tender for all goods and services, slides out of my backside. If I ever need money, I can press my belly button a few times and pull money out of my ass like my mom always said she can't. Nutella_Bacon
Keep a Bucket Handy
Automatic projectile vomiting, useful if I drink or eat something I shouldn't have. Nutella_Bacon
Who Needs a Cloak
Turn me invisible! jack9lemmon
No More Nytol
Make me fall asleep, whenever I wanted. marfalump
It would suck in the object in front of me and store it until I press my belly button twice, immediately releasing the object. pgwolvpack
Click a brain photo of what is in front of my eyes. aagg6
