Somebody would have brought up this old joke.
I'm built upside down - My feet smell and my nose runs! snake

I saw this the other day and wondered how much of Reeve's foundation helped out. It's quite remarkable!

Progress is being made in curing the common cold. Science has now learned how to make a nose run.

I am reminded of the old joke:
"My dog has no nose."
"How does he smell?"
"Terrible!"

This dog can now smell his own butt without turning his head.

This is a wonderful development, I hope it bodes well for humans down the line.

Now that you mention it, Patty, it would only be fair play; butt fat is helping pouting lips so fair's-fair that the nose help animate the butt.
