      Wannabwestern, sorry I missed your comment somehow. I do not know how to explain on your question of euphemism. It is something like raising a national flag when a football team of a country wins. In such occasion it is called nose became big.

      Is "Nose" a euphemism in your language for something else or does the nose have a unique cultural value? I love language and have never seen references to the nose used in so many ways. This was really interesting to read. Thanks!
