Why is the funny bone called the funny bone?


2 Answers

Because the actual name of that particular bone is called the Humerus. There are a ton of little nerves around that bone that actually causes your hand to go numb hence the funny feeling you get whenever you smack it Or bump it.

The "funny bone" got its nickname because of that funny feeling you get after you hit it.But your funny bone isn't actually a bone at all. Running down the inside part of your elbow is a nerve called the ulnar nerve.The ulnar nerve lets your brain know about feelings in your fourth and fifth fingers
