Woolly Booger

noun; compounding
A hairy and frightening looking person. A "woolly booger" is a booger (bogeyman) that is very hairy. This type of person usually has a lot of facial hair. The characteristics of this type of person are similar to that of the word "woolly bear" which is a hairy caterpillar found in North America. Adding "woolly" to the already scary "booger" may emphasize the individual’s fearsome appearance. Parents may use this word as a warning for children to stay away from "strangers" because the word tends to evoke a type of fright of a "whollybooger".
 
Scott hasn’t shaved for a few days, so kind of looks like a woolly booger.
Etymology : Compound woolly + booger [Middle English 'wolle' from Old English 'wull'+ -y 'adv'+ booger (origin unknown)]
