A question that has been bugging mankind since the dawn of time has finally been answered.
One of the greatest scientific mysteries of the universe has been solved.
And the answer is 3.6 inches.
Though I must stress that that is what one might term a "deflated" figure. The "inflated" figure is 5.2 inches.
Now I never paid much heed to the question as I have always been led to believe that the size doesn't matter – it's what you do with it that counts.
I also was led to believe that length is directly proportional to shoe size, and inversely proportional to car size. Maybe that's next on the list for research?
The research obviously excludes politicians as they are generally between five and six feet tall and that would really fuck up the figures.
And while I am on the subject, maybe we should indulge in a little education?
