why not "Such a throat is practical." ?

also - why would anyone ever say either?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giraffe what a nice neck! 'Hals' also translates to 'throat' although 'throat' is more often identified with 'Kehle'

A long neck is very practical for the guillotine. Only in very specific contexts it is not grammatically correct nonsense.
