All The Better To Smell You With, My Dear

"You know, you're lucky you have a big nose." Ed says.

"Oh yeah? Why is that?" I answered.

"Well, because I always have problems with my little nose."

"Problems like what? Breathing and stuff?" I said.

"Yeah, sense of smell, which is not very good...and hearing." he said.

"What does your hearing have to do with your nose?" I'm confused.

"I'm just talking about senses in general, you know, smell....hearing..." he said.

"So are you saying I have big ears too?" I'm thinking I should be insulted here.

"Well, no, because you have poor hearing but you listen very well. And because you have a big nose, you smell things really good. I think that adds to your sense of taste too, so you probably taste more flavors when you eat than I do and I think that has to do with your good smelling ability."

I couldn't resist and just had to say, "Well, you know what they say about people with big noses."
