A tribute to noses

Well. What can be said of noses?

We all have them. Unless, of course, you are Lord Vouldermourt, or a drunk driving burn victim. That’s really the only time we realize the importance of noses, when they’re no longer there… Take away the eyebrows and you’ve got one of the central ingredients of a timeless Da Vinci masterpiece. Take away the nose and, well, let’s just say you are more in Van Gogh territory.

Thus, I feel the nose is somewhat under-appreciated as far as facial features go — despite it being an absolute necessity, it hardly gets any praise. All other facial features — Lips, mouth, eyes, cheeks – can be objects of admiration (“She has the most beautiful eyes!” “Lips of an angel,” etc), but noses … You won’t find anyone saying something to the tune of: “Yeah man, that babe is HOT. Did you see the nose on that one?!”

Anyway, that’s all I have to say about noses right now.
