    You are confusing noses with interior design!

    Nah, that's only what that LLewellyn-Bwen bloke wants you to believe. He may think he can pretend to be all posh and the like, but in fact he's common as moock. Straight out of Clapham, he is.

    2. A North Carolina man, having purchased a case of rare, very expensive cigars, insured them against fire! Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of fabulous cigars, and having yet to make a single premium payment on the policy, the man filed a claim against the insurance company. In his claim, the man stated that he had lost the cigars "in a series of small fires."

    The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason that the man had consumed the cigars in a normal fashion. The man sued — and won! In delivering his ruling, the judge stated that since the man held a policy from the company in which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that the cigars would be insured against fire, without defining what it considered to be unacceptable fire, it was obligated to compensate the insured for his loss.

    Rather than endure a lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company grudgingly accepted the judge's ruling and paid the man $15,000 for the rare cigars he lost in the fires. After the man cashed his cheque, however, the insurance company had him arrested on 24 counts of arson. With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case being used as evidence against him, the man was convicted of intentionally burning the rare cigars and sentenced to 24 consecutive one-year terms.

    He already had consumed them...as written in the original post.

    Another one: A child was admitted to Kindergarten and gave his name as Pirschelbär...tunred out it was Pierre-Gilbert.

    (But there are strange names out there all the same)

    Of course you can pick your nose, or have someone else pick one for you. Any competent plastic surgeon will have a catalog of available noses to choose from: hooked, ski-jump, Jewish, Greek, Michael Jackson special, etc. etc.

    The horse on the TV show Mr. Ed was actually a zebra painted white.
    Somebody on this site actually said that and was serious. .
