    Why does your nose run but your feet smell?

    And why does your alarm clock go off when really it's going on?

    If your nose runs and your feet smell, does that mean you're built upside down? (in which case...is that your tie?)

    For a whole collection of "English language oddities" you might want to go to my best friend's homepage (http://www.heidorn-hamburg.de/), then click on her photo (top one on the left, not the ones of her kids), then on the "Hi!" sign (which takes you to her pages in ENGLISH) and from there you scroll down to "English" (all under "This is what I enjoy"). There you will find some nice collections - if you can be bothered to take all these steps? (You might also just be interested to find out who is my best friend?).
