Myth Dispelled: Shoe Size, Penis Size Not Linked. I guess there's no need in buying my shoes two sizes too large any longer (pardon the pun). Damn you scientists!

It isn't shoe size, it's the size of your nose!

Any Germans around at the moment? What is the saying again?

Because it wasn't feasible to measure the length of the erect penis, the researchers measured the penis when gently stretched.

Sure there it. I can hear the porn-style music now.

They don't call me "Tony the Pony" because I run fast... ;)

Correction: No connection between british shoe sizes and penile length. ;-)
-Size 13, OR

"I have some ideas that I am currently putting together as a research proposal," the researcher added. "There must be some part of the body that is predictive of penile length..."

"There just has to be! I've got to get my hands on more of these hot, hot cocks!"

Who the hell is funding this research, anyway?

Thank you! I need to print this out and give it to one of the guys who bowls at my parents' bowling alley. Everytime someone comes up to get a pair of size 12s, he'll elbow me and tell me to keep that one.

Uh, hello? How about *drum roll*.... the PENIS?!!?

Perhaps if I show this article to my shoe salesman, he'll stop insisting on "doublechecking" my measurements...

In the current study, the researchers studied men visiting a urologist for various reasons. Because it wasn't feasible to measure the length of the erect penis, the researchers measured the penis when gently stretched.

I'm sorry, I'm still trying to picture my urologist: "Well, you see, there's this study I'm participating in. May I gently stretch your penis and measure it?"

At 13EEE, I can confirm this is true. :-(

Wouldn't this study just determine how stretchy one's penis is?

The most reliable method to establish the size of a man's penis, is to ask him to take it out and show it to you. You can then measure it with a ruler :-)

"There is a strong correlation between stretched penile length and erect... The correlation is so strong that the results can be extrapolated to erect penises."

... As reports of this study were broadcast on the television news, some of the women in the bar giggled. Many of the men tried self-consciously not to look at their shoes. Gumby just smiled to himself and took another sip of Scotch.

In my *ahem* experience, the tip of the middle finger to the base of the palm seems to be a good indicator, in most cases.

Guys?

Holy cow, then I must be friggin' huge! I knew all those piano lessons as a kid would pay off!

So, let me get this straight ... the penis ... it stretches?

Yep, I second this theory...and now that we've got that all cleared up...I have to know...these stretchy penises...do they vibrate too?

Yes the penis stretches. When soft. Never been near one?
