Vandalism:)[edit]

There was some vandalism on the page(the articulations section) , so I deleted it until someone can change it back to its original state. I have noooo idea how to revert it. Mumbles (talk) 21:36, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

Funny article[edit]

I think this article is very funny. I ever find it... humerus... oh snap --BiT (talk) 01:13, 11 July 2008 (UTC)i think that what it says in the middle of the first paragraph was a true story

Stealing stupid jokes from 4chan? AND NOT GIVING CREDIT?! That is plagarism! 勇敢な要素 (talk) 19:33, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Redirect[edit]

Funny bone redirects to Ulnar nerve while Funny Bone goes to this page. Chromas (talk) 09:44, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

"Funny"[edit]

The ulnar nerve at the distal end of the humerus near the elbow is sometimes referred to in popular culture as 'the funny bone'. Striking this nerve can cause a tingling sensation ("funny" feeling), and sometimes a significant amount of pain.

Really? This is listed as the reason? As opposed to, you know, the bone sounding like "humorous"? 130.68.120.128 (talk) 18:20, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

There really is nothing funny about this bone[edit]

Just saying there's realy nothing funny about this bone... even though it's been called the "funny bone" Kids, focus on studying anatomy!! 129.180.175.166 (talk) 03:15, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Serious article?[edit]

It's not nearly as funny as the name suggests. Is this sentence necessary? ISR10h (talk) 01:55, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

No, not at all. I removed it. --Fama Clamosa (talk) 04:04, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

Inaccuracy of Picture[edit]

I believe that the picture misrepresents the location of the Greater and Lesser Tubercles, but would encourage someone else to double check me for verification before making any changes. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.79.101.250 (talk) 20:39, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

I absolutely agree, the greater and lesser tubercles are incorrect in the picture, I think it should be changed immediately. 99.7.245.101 (talk) 14:41, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

I second. The greater and less tuberosity labels are indeed reversed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.131.189.167 (talk) 00:53, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the report which I just noticed. I uploaded a new version of the image (to here at Commons) to correct two errors ("Capitulum" is correct spelling, and "Greater Tuberosity" is at the top). The original image (Gray's Anatomy) was correct on both these points. Johnuniq (talk) 06:52, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

Flexion at the elbow[edit]

The coracobrachialis does not flex the arm at the elbow, it flexes at the shoulder?
