Is your funny bone a bone?

Well, there is a bone that is the bone they call the "funny bone" (actually called the humerus) because if you hit it at the right spot, it causes a 'funny' sensation in your arm. Though, there is a nerve at the end of the humerus that is actually being struck, not the bone itself.
