Hi all,
A very popular children's story says that Pinocchio experienced an involuntary enlargement of his nose whenever he told a lie. And I'm so perplexed and baffled I'm about to lay an egg. The author of the story didn' t mention a word what happened when this wooden whippersnapper saw, say, a broomstick, a coat stand or simply a young tree. Did his private parts behave the same way as his nose and got substantially longer? Oh, and what kind of timber was the boy made of? Birch, elm, cherry tree perhaps? Please shed some light on this super vital matter or else I will perish in darkness. Spank you.
Ps. Just testing.

First, for the sake of learning English, which this group is about: this should be "get", not "got", given that your sentence begins with "Did".

Now to the point of your question:
Most of us human males (whether of the flesh and blood or timber variety) do not inevitably become sexually aroused at the sight of the particular object which our noses pathologically resemble, be they broomsticks, beans, basketballs, boots, blueberries, or bluebird beaks.

Which leaves me wondering what on earth the shape of your nose might be reminiscent of. The answer will certainly not be as plain as the nose in your face. Or are you simply a... gosh, what's the Greek for nose... a rhinophile??

To my knowledge, the original text does not explicitly state it, but the name
of this wooden boy clearly derives from the Italian "pino" = pine. I guess Pinocchio's story is an example of what happens when the resin in a piece of pine wood becomes Collodized.
Ps. Just testing.

And what's my score?
Happy new year,
