Wikipedia: Humerus
The humerus (/ˈhjuːmərəs/, plural: humeri) is a long bone in the arm that runs from the shoulder to the elbow. It connects the scapula and the two bones of the lower arm, the radius and ulna, and consists of three sections. The humeral upper extremity consists of a rounded head, a narrow neck, and two short processes (tubercles, sometimes called tuberosities). The body is cylindrical in its upper portion, and more prismatic below.
(...)
The ulnar nerve lies at the distal end of the humerus near the elbow. When struck, it can cause a distinct tingling sensation, and sometimes a significant amount of pain. It is sometimes popularly referred to as ‘the funny bone’, possibly due to this sensation (a “funny” feeling), as well as the fact that the bone’s name is a homophone of ‘humorous’. It lies posterior to the medial epicondyle, and is easily damaged in elbow injuries.
