    Which one is correct?
    They is plural so the object should be plural too right?

    They have a good nose
    They have good noses

    Michael Jackson is white as snow

    Is this correct? Is it okay to descibe someone who is not a white person but white like snow white?

    Re: nose

    They have good noses -- Yes, unless there is possible confusion, a consistent plural is sylistically better.

    Michael Jackson is (as) white as snow-- Yes, you can use this to describe MJ's vitiligo.
