In the human body is there really a bone named funny bone?
No there is no such bone. There is a nerve that when it is hit
in the right place 'feels like a funny bone, but it it is not
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. It's also one
of the nerves that controls some movement of your hand.
You get that 'funny feeling' when the ulnar nerve is bumped against
the humerus, the long bone that starts at your elbow and goes up to
your shoulder. Tapping your funny bone doesn't do any damage to
your elbow, arm, or ulnar nerve. But it sure feels strange!
