look up any word, like the eiffel tower:
 
1.
1. The skinny cartilaginous wings lining the anterior edge of the external auditory canal. Also called the tragus.

2. The magical buttons that when pushed, hide unwanted garbage-noise from entering the skull.
Do you always stick your fingers in your ear-holes when you hear Counting Crows?

No, I just push my ear-buttons.

What are those?

The little wings outside your ear; you push them onto your ear so you don't get your fingers gross with earwax.

Sounds complicating. I think I'll just stick with wax-fingers.
