If it were 12" long it would be a foot.

[This type of 'question' should be in the chat section, Ning1101]

In my experience men always underestimate 12" so most men will probably think their noses are 12" long.

Hmm, methinks you are perchance referring to some other appendage of the male of the species???

You are correct, sir. We usually keep her locked in confinement until it is safe for her to come out. That is usually when all men, nay, anything that belongs to the animal kingdom (and some plants,) as well as things that can be used to "stimulate" her, are well hidden and locked away.
