Eat Your Words

While most of us are feasting on turkey and stuffing Thursday, others will be chewing on their words, literally.

Doctors in Ccotland have issued a report on six people with a type of synesthesia.

It is an unusual sensory condition, in which people see colors when they hear sounds, for example.

In this case, people experience different tastes when they hear certain words.

Most of the tastes people are related to food, such as tomato soup, tuna, or even salad with cesar dressing.

Sometimes people report rather odd tastes, such as earwax.

Most patients said having synesthesia was not a bad thing, but some said they loved it.
