“Where in the human body do we have cartilage?”

Leonardo da Vinci’s anatomical study of the arm, showing the movements of the biceps. c. 1510 (Image via Wikipedia)

Mommyo, promptly: “Your nose and ear.”

The Five-Year-Old, thoroughly: “Where else?”

The iPhone, belatedly:

“Cartilage is found in the joints between bones, the rib cage, the ear, the nose, the elbow, the knee, the ankle, the bronchial tubes and the intervertebral discs.” (

Mommyo, bravely: “Next!”
