This map, from the Web site TargetMap, offers a vicious slur on American males when it comes to dick size, clearly giving us the short end of the stick, as it were.

The trouble, as far as we can tell, is that wimpy small-dick states like Vermont and, we don't know, Oregon, are lumped in with Texas.

We're sure if Texas was broken out as a separate entity, that things would look very different indeed. Finally something Rick Perry supports actually makes sense.

One ray of hope: The research behind the map shows that many estimates are "self-reported." Not the U.S's 5.1 inches, which is officially listed as "measured," but Uruguay, South Africa and Peru, among others, we're taking with a grain of salt.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
