Luckily for us, our 15 month old hasn't done anything grosser than play in the compost pile once--mostly just crushing eggshells. I have clear memories myself of playing the "potty water" game with my older brother when I was probably 2, which consisted of lowering a finger slowly into the toilet until you touch the water, then raising it slowly to your mouth. . . BLECH! It gives me the shudders thinking of it now, but I apparently survived with no ill effects.
A friend of ours once told us the three grosses things his son had put in his mouth: cat puke, dead fly, toilet brush. Kids are pretty resiliant, I guess.
