Before we leave chins, and just for the elves, here are a few famous chins.
Bruce Forsyth
Jimmy Hill
Bulldog Drummond
Desperate Dan
Dick Dastardly
Colonel Reilly-ffoul (Daily Mirror comic strip)
Colonel Chinstrap (ITMA - "I don't mind if I do")
Chin Chin - a toast from the British Raj
Chu Chin Chow

Also chin related: in boxing circles, some fighters are known to have 'glass jaws'; easily knocked out by a blow to the chin.

Don't forget the Crimson Chin.



He's the comic book super hero from "The Fairly Odd Parents"; but I expect you all know that anyway.

And was voiced by Jay Leno. Also on the voice cast for the show was Adam West, who voiced a character called Catman.

ie by stretching the mandibular branch of the trigeminal (fifth cranial) nerve, also known as the Inferior Dental Nerve.

What actually knocks you out is the pain overload which the brain shuts out by losing consciousness - it's equivalent to having all the teeth on one side of your lower jaw pulled out at once.

Now, there's a chin to top the charts.

I finally got around to watching the XL version of this last night. A tad ruder than normal, but not unacceptably so, I thought. I enjoyed Jack Whitehall a lot, especially the interaction between him and Stephen, and I hope he appears again. I don't know how often or for how long Cal Thomas is in the UK, but I hope we get her back in the next series too.

JW definitely upped the rudeness quotient, though that was pretty tame stuff by the standards of his other work. Amusingly, in line with a comment SF made, while the number of gay panelists was sharply reduced form last week, levels of camp definitely went up...

I was a little surprised to see CW back so soon, but pleasantly so. Maybe she's "breaking Britain"! (I mean comedicly. Not in a Chancellor of the Exchequer sort of way.)

One of the Crimson Chin episodes included my 2nd favourite "Fairly Odd Parents" line. "These are real cartoon people in real cartoon danger".

What, no Bruce Campbell?
His autobiography is called If Chins Could Kill.

I was a bit surprised too. I supposed they were making the most of her while she was available.

Probably worth a double-check, but it's entirely possible that the two episodes were filmed on the same day.

re chinstrap penguins, it's not a chin in the strictest sense of the word:

Some more flopping about on the webs led me to the Siamang, the female of which has a skull that looks something like this (linked for size).
Is that a mental protuberance I see before me?

The Siamang also looks Quite Interesting for that throat pouch it has.

Mandibular prognathism (progenism)

Pathologic mandibular prognathism is a potentially disfiguring, genetic disorder where the lower jaw outgrows the upper, resulting in an extended chin.

The condition is colloquially known as Habsburg jaw, Habsburg lip or Austrian Lip (see House of Habsburg) due to its prevalence in that bloodline.[4] The trait is easily traceable in portraits of Habsburg family members.[5] This has provided tools for people interested in studying genetics and pedigree analysis. Most instances are considered polygenetic.[6]

It is alleged to have been derived through a female from the princely Polish family of Piasts, its Masovian branch. The deformation of lips is clearly visible on tomb sculptures of Mazovian Piasts in the St. John's Cathedral in Warsaw. However this may be, there exists evidence that the trait is longstanding. It is perhaps first observed in Maximilian I (14591519).

Traits such as these that were common to royal families are believed to have been passed on and exaggerated over time through royal intermarriage which caused acute inbreeding. Due to the large amount of politically motivated intermarriage among Habsburgs, the dynasty was virtually unparalleled in the degree of its inbreeding. Charles II of Spain is said to have had the most pronounced case of the Habsburg jaw on record. His jaw was so deformed that he was unable to chew.

Many dog breeds have underbite, particularly those with short faces, like Shih Tzus and Boxers. This may be due, as in the case of bulldogs, to a slower growing maxilla in relation to the mandible.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prognathism#Mandibular_prognathism_.28progenism.29

Quote:
Prognathia (undershot, or monkey or sow mouth in horses) is found when the mandible is longer than the maxilla. It is identified on oral examination by finding the mandibular incisors in contact with or rostral to the maxillary incisors. In brachycephalic dogs and Persian cats, it is considered a normal breed characteristic. Despite being seen to varying degrees, it rarely requires any specific treatment. If a foal is badly affected, suckling may be impossible; treatment, if feasible, consists of rasping or shearing the offending points and projections. In ruminants, it is often seen, to minor degrees, at birth, and it corrects spontaneously as the animal grows. More severe anomalies can impair the ability to graze and masticate and, therefore, have more serious repercussions.

So while most cats may not normally have chins acromegalic (Mandibular prognathic) cats (Persians), and indeed some dog breeds, do. Where's my badge?

I'd say (along with Merck) that prognathism is an overgrown mandible. In humans, a chin is already present and enlarges along with the rest of the jaw.
