Do you know where the ‘funny bone’ is?

This picture first appeared in the book Do You Know

P.C Do You Know

Your funny bone isn’t a bone actually… it is a nerve, called the ulnar nerve. This nerve runs from the neck to the hand. According to a theory, the nerve is based on the upper arm bone, located between the elbow and the shoulder, which is called ‘humerus’ ( pronounced ‘humorous’, meaning ‘funny’!)

When you hit your funny bone, the ulnar nerve gets compressed and it causes a sort of funny, tingling sensation. It may be painful for some. It feels funny to me and I call it a ‘440 volt’!

Hence, it’s the ulnar nerve which makes you get that wierd sensation and, normally it doesn’t last for too long.

P.C. Google
