Taste with your earlobe

Sorry for the dad joke, but I heard that awful song Listen with Your Heart on the radio in a cab yesterday and it occurred to me that technically speaking, you can’t listen with your heart any more than you can:

  • Taste with your earlobe
  • Do a poo with your elbow
  • Produce bile with your toenail
  • Transport oxygen from lungs to organs and muscles with your armpit
  • Synthesise glucose from amino acids, lactate or glycerol with your cerebellar flocculus.
