Wasn't that Italico Vespucci, the famous Italian designer of typefaces and ridiculously tall heels on women's shoes?

Was that the cause of death or just something he was unable to attend to before his demise?

Wouldn't that depend on 1) the heel size and 2) the nostril size?

Is there a size known as "Huge-ass Honker" or was that my imagination?

I'm not sure but I was wondering would the sizes be in US/European/UK like shoes are?
