Question: Why would you get an erection from telling lies?

Answer: Because the erectile tissue in your nose enlarges after lie-telling.

There is only one part of the body, with the exception of the reproductive system, which contains erectile tissue, and that is the nose; it is this tissue which is responsible for controlling the flow of air through the nostrils.

Scientists have discovered that, like Pinocchio, your nose actually does get bigger when you tell lies, the erectile tissue does indeed become engorged with blood during a deception, and it is for this reason that liars often touch or itch their nose to betray their guilt.

Another result of this tissue is so-called honeymoon rhinitis, a well documented syndrome which results in men and women getting stuffy noses during sex. It has also been claimed that use of Viagra can cause nosebleeds, a number of documented cases have been reported, though Pfizer refutes these claims, putting forward its own research.

Finally the old favourite:
Q. What part of a manīs body increases in size by up to ten times when he is aroused?

A. The pupil.

Picture researchers, here is the illustration I brought to the meeting:

But in light of question suggestions, maybe something like this would be more useful:

Incidentally, does anyone have any ideas of a better way of phrasing the question? I know a few were bounced around on Monday, but I can't for the life of me remember precisely what was decided.
