Tasting Your Words

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

Doctors in Scotland have diagnosed six people with an unusual sensory condition called "Synesthesia." The people with this condition experience different tastes when they hear certain words. Most of the tastes are related to food, such as tomato soup or tuna salad, but some people report odd tastes like earwax.

The condition is hereditary and most say it's not a bad thing. but one man said driving a car was difficult because the traffic signs overloaded his taste buds with flavors like pistachio ice cream.
