Boogers, bogies, and the bogey man

I’m taking a moment to clarify since this is a confusing matter:

Boogers [boog-er] : a piece of dried mucus in or from the nose.

Bogies [boh-gee] : British. a piece of dried mucus in or from the nose.

Bogey man [boog-ee-man, boh-gee-, boo-] : An imaginary evil character of supernatural powers, who may or may not have boogers or bogies in his nose, especially a mythical hobgoblin supposed to carry off naughty children, who may or may not have boogers or bogies in their noses.

Questions? Bueller? Bueller?
