Old Brake Fluid!
I would've taken pics, if I wasn't so greasy and dirty at the time, but man... my brake fluid was nasty!!! I bought new fluid to do the suburban, since it is one of the last fluids that came with the truck when I bought it in fall 2011 (still need to change the coolant and transfer case, too). I emptied the reservoir to wipe the thing clean, since a light film of gunk often builds up on the interior walls. When I went to wipe, I noticed giant, thick piles of goo, like river bottom silt or sludge! This thing was holding maybe a tablespoon or two of sludge in it!
After a good cleaning, I asked my 6 yr old son if he wanted to help work on the truck with me. He was eager, so I had him pump, while I opened and closed the bleeder valves. He was excited, and so was I... it is so much fun working on automobiles with your boy!!!
