Why is it the English Channel & not the BB Sea?

Why is it the sun & not a space heater?

Why is it Alexander Graham Bell & not the lord of the rings?

Why is it a foot falling asleep & not coma toes?

Why is it a crab & not a sidewalk?

Why is it an injury lawyer & not a trip advisor?

Why is it a vet & not a dogtor?
