Did you know that if you have a big nose you’re a lot more patient person? I’m kidding, your nose doesn’t really have anything to do with patience.

This little turn of phrase doesn’t mean that God literally has a long nose, or that if you have a big nose you’re actually more patient. It comes the idea that when you get angry, your face and especially your nose turn red, like they’re hot.
